Wow what a cool shop that was, definitely more alive than the others we visited, very passionate owners in there! Maybe that's only on a Saturday but they had lots of different artists working and doing demonstrations, very entertaining and we talked to loads of interesting people. We bought most of our gifts for home before heading down to Auckland, lots of great stuff for kids, some unique pieces of handcrafts (all New Zealand made - some shops seem to have nothing but Chinese things, plastic Maori art etc. - avoid!), of course couldn't go home without yarns for the wife (big selection for those interested - also lots of glass jewellery the owner makes herself), and lots of small and inexpensive things, lots of art on the walls. It's not directly in the Whangarei Town Basin but you can see the blue shop from the carpark, it's very close and there's also easy parking in front.
