    Handbags

    Not really near downtown Hamilton, and you need a car to get to it, but this shop has the most wonderful array of handbags I have seen!!
    Although not really near tourist routes, if you find you spend some days in Hamilton and you buy an outfit and need to get a handbag to match, this is the place to go.

    What to buy: Handbags and more handbags!! Some accessories such as scarves too. A good selection of New Zealand made handbags, made from imported Italian leathers.

    What to pay: Not cheap, but quality leather handbags, around $NZD220.

    The Platter Place

    Not really anywhere near the "beaten track", this Café is worth the effort if you spend some days in Hamilton and have access to a car.
    Really nice food and drinks. Primarily a kitchen that prepares platters for parties and taking away. However you can dine here and they serve very trendy and nice food.
    A small array of delicatessen items for sale.

    What to buy: Delicatessen items, Recipe book, coffee and food.
