The littlelist shop with the thickest walls tucked in the back of Old Cromwell town. Marie's hand crafted jewellery is beautiful and unique. There's also a selection of her quirky cards. You have to go and have a look.

Came here on a tour of South Island tourism spots. Loved Marie's individual style and warm personality. Bought some beautiful earrings. Great wee spot to visit - my favourite in the Heritage Precinct.
