As someone who likes to spend weekends and holidays taking in the countryside and stopping in at antique shops along the way, I have become frustrated by the lack of good current information about antique and collectable shops in New Zealand.
So, I decided to set up this guide to help others who enjoy hitting the road in search of antiques and collectables. You won’t find every shop listed here, but most New Zealand shops are listed.
To help you assess the currency of the information, I have listed the last date the shop was visited or that I was able to confirm shop details. I will make every effort to ensure that the information on each shop listed is accurate, but because many antique and collectable dealers are sole operators, it still pays to call ahead to confirm hours and ensure the owner is not on holiday themselves.
Shop Listings Are Free
The antique dealers listed do not pay to be included in this directory. They are listed, because I thought that they were interesting shops and that others might also find them so. I don’t list shops that focus on reproductions or have a lot of giftware stock.
Dealers Not Listed Yet
To antique dealers and shop owners that I have yet to visit, I would be happy to hear from you. Someday I hope to visit you too and in the meantime I can list your shop as a shop to be visited.
