I happened to spot this place so decided to find out what it really was.

If your looking to buy people's crafts and hand made items then this is probably the best place in Auckland to go. I thought it was a craft supply shop. No it is not. But if you... read more

If your looking to buy people's crafts and hand made items then this is probably the best place in Auckland to go. I thought it was a craft supply shop. No it is not. But if you want to look at a massive array of well made home craft from textile to wood turning, painting to patchwork this is the... More

If you are after buying locally made souvenirs or gift this is a perfect place to visit. You have a great collection to choose from. This shop is way ahead of your basic souvenirs shop. Stuff on display has been made in NZ by some local artist.

Perfect place for "one-stop shop" if shopping for presents or souvenirs; easy to find in the original part of the Westgate Centre, open space divided into stalls for local artisans and craftspeople to personally display their wares. Huge range of goods available, all genuine New Zealand made. Absolutely recommended.

Have visited this place every time we visit New Zealand and it never fails to please. A great place to pick up some local crafting souvineers from some very talented kiwis.

This is a must stop visit if you are at Westgate Shopping Centre. My daughters love the skincare products and I had a wonderful time browsing at the wide display of art and craft products created by the local artists and craftspeople. Really pretty and unusual items which are worth buying as souvenirs and presents. There's also a coffee corner... More

No plastic mass produced garbage at Craft world, everything is made locally. Food, skin care, ceramics, painting, clothing, photography, jewellery, furniture and more! This unique shop is really worth a visit if you want to buy genuine NZ souvenirs and gifts that are very reasonably priced.

I find crafts really odd and pointless so this whole set up I find to be just bizarre. So many weird things. Bizarre

When we go to Europe we always go to Craft World first to find some small souvenir style New Zealand Gift. They always have a great selection and not too expensive.
