Xmas Shopping

11 December 2019

Looking for something unusual ?

For our last mid-week trip for the year we are going to take you to three very different venues. A chance, maybe, to get that different extra-special gift?

The Garden Art Studio - Cambridge

Lilies by Blewden

The Interiors Barn Tirau

A wide choice from brightly coloured garden art, gorgeous lilies or a quirky whatnot


"Based in Cambridge, the Garden Art Studio stocks a unique collection of New Zealand made indoor & outdoor art. Alison's gallery is a haven where people come to appreciate an eclectic mix of art, amble through the gardens and enjoy a cup of coffee or a bite to eat while searching for collectibles....The Garden Art Studio is the perfect place to seek the finest prints, ceramics, sculptures, jewellery and many other works of art from amazing kiwi artists. " (Taken from thegardenartstudio.co.nz)


"From humble beginnings on an asparagus field on the banks of the Waikato River just out of Cambridge, 11,000 square meters of automated greenhouses produce 1.1 million stems per year, giving consistent and reliable all-year-round supply.
Lilies by Blewden is one of the very few flower producers in New Zealand to meet the stringent demands of NZGAP (Good Agricultural Practice). This is your guarantee that...flowers have been produced using industry Best Practice.. In particular, ...commitment to IPM (Integrated Pest Management) means chemical use is kept to an absolute minimum -resulting in fewer nasty residues on your lilies.: (Taken from lilies.co.nz)


The Interiors Barn has become so popular that it has had to relocate from its original location in Cambridge to Tirau

They offer a wide range of quality-made furniture & home wares.
"Come and see our hand selected pieces to add style and personality to your home...Looking forward to providing you with the highest grade interiors at the lowest prices. Buy direct from the importer& save." (Taken from the venue's Facebook Page)
