Atawhai Four Square: Dodgy
Absolute rip off & the tall guy that served me could not have been ruder. What a pity - nearly ruined an otherwise perfect stay in Nelson. Avoid this shop - there are many other places more deserving of your money. Steer clear of rude nasty people like this who let down an otherwise wonderful city.
What to buy: Would never ever shop there again
What to pay: More than you would anywhere else.

New World: Check out the supermarket
New World is a New Zealand supermarket chain. In NZ you can buy wine in the supermarket. We were in Nelson and found they had a local wine section and some of the wine was considerably cheaper than you could buy it at the winery. So, if you are planning to take home some wine, consider checking out the supermarket to see if you can buy it cheaper. We saved $5 a bottle.
Pottery and Jewelry
very high Quality and beautiful crafted Nelson Pottery. Many NZ Artist's have made Nelson their home and work place.
the Danish Jeweller & Goldsmith Hansen has his workshop and store in Nelsons, right beside Christ Church, off Trafalgar St.
at Nile St. and the Saturday Market at the South Street Gallery
