  • Love to spend time wandering this store. Perfect for gift shopping. A real taste of Napier’s Art Deco history . Friendly and helpful staff . A Napier city must do .

  • Wonderful exhibition of cubist art forms, the section on kereru station and the contributions of the Nelson family should be a must see for any Hawke's bay citizen.

  • Interesting collection of paraphernalia and 30s style stuff. Lot of it is obviously cheap knock offs though

  • Art Deco is such an interesting era especially in Napier. I bought a lovely lamp, to go with my 1939 front door window pane. They have a short film about Napier earthquake you can watch, it's amazing to see what Napier went through that day and months after.

  • great place to stop and get your bearings- very helpful
