My mission is to bring you exciting New Zealand Made fashion, gifts, art, jewellery and accessories.
Our selection celebrates the New Zealand lifestyle and design aesthetic.
You can browse our beautiful store in comfort, take in the unique view of the Kaipara, and be treated to excellent service too!
I have added a selected range of imported pieces in all categories, while I strive to maintain that the majority of our designer pieces are made in New Zealand.
Maintaining a high standard of quality and supporting ethically produced pieces that are both useful and beautiful, is the intention of the store. I aim to provide Helensville (and beyond) with an exciting, creative, visually stimulating and interesting store that is sustainable.
I have been involved in the fashion and jewellery industrys in New Zealand for many years and was first introduced to retail by my Mum when I was just three years old! Ann Hineaupaki Smith taught me the value of service and treating customers as you would like to be treated.
I enjoy the personal contact working in a retail store provides for customers and myself, and aim to give excellent yet unobtrusive service to every customer who comes through the door -or website. The customer comes first and I have sourced many products for customers in order for them to get exactly what they are after. We offer larger sizes in clothing, but always our pieces must be beautiful and functional!
The Paua Room started life as a very tiny ‘iti paua’, and having outgrown several ‘shells’ in Helensville now occupies a wonderful building at the entrance to Helensville, on Commercial Road. This former library, restaurant and night club has been completely transformed by us into a special haven for those who love beauty.
Some of the brands we stock are- Jill Main, Chalky Digits, Cashews, Pacifica skincare, Kio Kio skincare, Blue Earth, Anne Mardell and many more.
The Art of Yoga - our Yoga Studio adjoins the store, please click the link for info on yoga classes and times.
I hope you will stay awhile when you come to the store or website; I am adding new products to the web store everyday so please call back often to check out ‘what’s new’.
