The prices is relatively cheaper than other souvenir shops. Neat buys. Won't find anything from Hobbiton here. Just the usual keychain, drawstring bags and cute baby clothes and others. Worth checking it out if you're round the corner.

This is definitely the best souvenir shop in New Zealand. Everything you could possibly need and at very reasonable prices. Not sure who served me but incredibly friendly. Highly recommended.
