We have everything you need for the coming season, from gorgeous gifts to cool cotton tops, skirts, dresses and shorts, not to mention swimwear and more.

Our fantastic range of gifts are arriving everyday for you to have a good selection to choose from for Christmas! 






We offer a unique and broad range of designer clothing, jewellery, accessories as well as art, gifts and skincare products. Our focus is on New Zealand made and designed, celebrating the unique culture of Aotearoa in our gift range, as well as supporting New Zealand fashion and design.

Carefully selected international labels compliment the range.

Here's what one of our customer wrote to us recently -" I love visiting The Paua Room. I'm able to tell Linsey what I'm looking for and she comes up with great suggestions. And, if I really am unsure about styles she comes up with some great ideas of styles that may suit me. It's nice to be able to go out wearing something that is different than what I would find at the mall. Prices are affordable and great quality. Then I can look at jewellery, shoes, bags to complement. So lucky to have this as our local store." - Janice
