Parnell Village Shops, Auckland: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Great array of souvenirs
by kiwi

I found in this shop a big array and large selection of very nice souvenirs of New Zealand. All sorts of bits, large and small. Native wooden bowls, Merino woollen garments, craft made toys, postcards, jewellery, something for everyone. Even possum skin items, bags and scarves etc. Remember possum skin helps protect our native bush and fauna and also our protected kiwi birds. These animals are a major problem in our wilds, therefore killing for their skins is encouraged.

What to buy: As mentioned already there is something for everyone here, large or small. If you fancy to pay big money for craft items you can pay $4000 for a large lamp or if you only want to spend $1 on a tiny bumble bee or postcard, you can. I found the price of the native wooden turned bowls reasonable compared to similar items around the country.

What to pay: $1 to $4000 kiwi dollars!!
