History Originally a grain shed on a 600 acre sheep farm The Tin Shed building hasn't changed much externally. But on the inside we're now a thriving country store selling woollen goods, (naturally), and other quality items made in New Zealand. People Our staff are friendly, local, women who are happy to both serve our customers, and make sure that products ordered are packed and shipped out to you in good time! We'll mail almost anywhere We have vast experience in mailing our customers purchases to most parts of the world. You can be assured of worry-free shopping with our completely secure online ordering system. Prices on our site are in New Zealand dollars and exclusive of New Zealand sales tax (GST).

Why not take some time out to say hello to our animals and wander through our garden of native plants and trees. Find us offline If you happen to be in this part of the world do drop in! Our shop hours are 8.30 to 5pm (7 days). Here's a map showing the way...
