The little brown house vintage and funky gift shop Wanaka New Zealand

Yes! The Little Brown House is open once again and it has morphed a bit … or rather a lot! Here’s how.

The new store is designed to be more experiential.

We’ll be able to demonstrate how to use all our specialised products that you admire but are a bit afraid to use because you don’t know where to start (we totally know that feeling too!).

We celebrate creativity and arts in many different forms and we love to hear how you appreciate them too. Come and see what we have more of… Here’s a hint: there is more colour, more freedom, more collage, more writing, more art and more acceptance than your little heart can hold. How did acceptance feature in that sentence? Well remember our little brown house blessing because we never forget why Little Brown House exists first and foremost – for everyone.

Well I never!

If you’ve never had a chance to visit either our website or the Little Brown House before, that doesn’t matter – you find us when you are meant to and when you do your head will spin with wonder because Little Brown House is no ordinary place.

Do we still have chocolate and Hildegard and things?

Yup. We still have the best schoc chocolate tablets, truffles and chocolatey creations. And we still have Hildegard modelling the rare style finds we bring you from our travels and good-eye hunting. Pre-loved and vintage finds that are one-offs for you to express yourself in! Hildie has a few days before her new threads arrive so she is sporting one of Cathie’s best dresses for now as she refused to appear naked waiting on the courier (she is such a DIVA).

We also have a new library corner which is Wunderbar! Our books are either rare, serious literature, beautiful, eccentric or arty. We only carry books which we know and love so you can rest assured that you will heart them too.

We no longer have the kitchen because we need to be able to demonstrate our products and because our days are now quite full writing love letters, preparing vintage parcels, creating amazing scrolls and managing our online store together with showing you how you can spread the love in really meaningful ways yourself.

Who knows?

In time a kindred will find us and want to run a fantastic cafe on site with the Little Brown House alongside it – we see something like Circus Circus on that hillside sometime in the future and we are collaborative souls so you never know… Plus, you do have fantastic existing cafes in Wanaka so stride around the village in style and you will have earnt your chocolate when you come to ours.

Lots of love xx
