    HAPPY HENS: Unique Ceramics

    Happy Hens for sale in the studio

    Happy Hens Studio
    I had seen "Happy Hens" before, and decided what a different, unique gift these would make.
    We found the studio on our way down the Otago peninusula. This is where the Happy Hens begin, where you can see them being made from the start to the finish, including the hand painting of the hens. If you look closely at them, and know something about "Hens" then you will pick up that they are painted to represent different breeds of Hens.
    I thought they were rather cute!

    Studio hours are
    Mon-Fri 9:00 am to 4:30 pm
    Sat-Sun 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm
    (Extended hours during summer months)

    New Zealand Gifts To the World: Souvenir shopping

    souvenir Xmas kiwis
    1 more image

    This shop had a good range of souvenirs, and, best of all for us, in comparing prices, it was the most reasonably priced souvenir shop which we came across on the trip.

    What to buy: Many nice Paua shell items, including jewellery, souvenir mugs, ceramics, postcards, toy Kiwi birds and lots lots more.

    What to pay: Depends on the souvenir, but I managed to buy some nice paua shell clip on earrings for $12, which seemed most reasonable.

    Totally Otago: Looking for an authentic "made in Otago" gift?

    by worldkiwi Written May 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Totally Otago is a small shop offering the visitor to Dunedin locally made products ranging from cheeses, wines, and other foods, through to paintings, woolen ware, and pottery. It is perfect for those who want to take something authentically "made in Otago" home as a souvenir or gift.

    What to pay: Prices aren't cheap. If you're looking for low priced souvenirs, go to one of the shops in the Octagon, but don't expect to buy something made in Otago, or even New Zealand for that matter.
