Christmas Shopping Night

Friday 30 November 2018, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


After a year hiatus, we’re back with the classic, exclusive Friends Christmas shopping evening in collaboration with the Te Papa store. Come along, bring a friend and while you shop and enjoy live music and a glass of wine, beer or juice.

The store have given us a special 15% discount for the evening and free gift-wrapping.

The ground floor Store will be open and we’ve invited our local artisans who have pieces in the store to come along to be able to share their crafts with you. There has been an overhaul of items and work available in the shop and we think you’ll have plenty of options of Christmas gifts for your loved ones. Things you can expect to see include:

  • Bill Hammond and Tony Fomison Te Papa Collection Prints under licence
  • Signed limited edition prints from New Zealand and Local Artists Michel Tuffery, Jane Blackmore, Sofia Minson and Liam Barr
  • New to the floor; three pretty cool skincare companies, 3Bee, Ashley & Co and Noa join a long list of over 60 new artist and suppliers to a new look shop.

You also have plenty of time to shop and post your parcels overseas as Monday 10 December is the closing date for air courier to North America, UK and Europe.

We’ll have 3 spot prizes on the night including a Deluxe Edition of the Wearable Art book signed by Dame Suzie worth $60!

To go in the draw for a spot prize, please RSVP by 5pm Thursday 29 November with numbers attending. Please note that this event is exclusive to Friends members only .
