New in store

Author: Kirsty Stratford, Senior Host
Wow … Christmas is approaching quickly and at MINE, the Dowse shop, we are receiving beautiful stock each week.This week I would like to introduce one new artist and three favourite returning artists.

Angela Francis from Waikanae is allowing us to stock her exclusive handmade silver jewellery. It is exquisite and the ideal gift for a person of style!

Ange from Silver Circus has brought us a new supply of her gorgeous t-shirts sizes new-born to 4 year old. We have a range of colours and cool prints. These tee’s are one of our bestsellers in the shop, we just can’t get enough of them! Ange is a local artist from Petone.

Fantails Quilt is a beautiful children’s book written by Gay Hay and richly illustrated by Margaret Tolland. The book has the most wonderful introductory note: “To the children who plant and nurture native trees to provide food and homes for our precious birds”. A lovely gift for all children, and also ideal to post overseas.

Office morale flagging before Christmas? Emma Makes’ pencils will make you laugh and help you cope with those stressful times! The perfect secret Santa gift.

I will be posting more updates on gift ideas that will help you shop local for Christmas over the next few weeks. We look forward to seeing you here at the Dowse browsing our wares, and don’t forget you can also give us a call on 04 570 6500 or email us on with any questions or orders.
