Shopping Mall/CHCH - Canterbury

Shopping Mall/CHCH

Eastgate.Christchurch: Big shopping Mall

everything you need ist here..I don't have to explain a shopping Mall:-) we all have to live with them now, and of course can be quite handy, especially in the winter...warm and cosy and everything in place.have a look at the pic, the thick clouds coming from the south....bringing rain and cold air

What to buy: most big Supermarkets are here too. everything you need for Breakfast, light Lunch or takeaways Dinner, you will find it here.
a couple of years ago the Liquor Laws have changed in NZ, now the Supermarkets can sell Beer and Wine all day long all year around..some are open 24h..some from 7:30am to 10pm, 7days a week


What to pay: Beer.sixpack US$4.- a good Bottle of Wine from US$ 5.- think globally and buy locally :-c

Temuka - Canterbury

Temuka

Pottery: Temuka

it's actually a wee factory shop, right on Highway 1 Main Street in Temuka. You can buy first or,which I always opt for, seconds Dinnerware etc.Best manufactured Dinnerware, Mugs etc in NZ and a great gift to bring home. the Colours are bold, exquisitly handpainted and Dishwasher save.

What to pay: they are not cheap,a big Fruitbowl.set you back around US$35.-.... but real good things have their price, but I assure you, you will enjoy your Mugs, Plates or whatever you buy, for years to come

Address: Temuka Main St
