Our rental apartment put out the flag for us when we arrived in Nelson, NZ.
We are happy to be back in this delightful small town. It has 3 weekly markets ( a post of their own), a well curated art gallery, several private galleries, lots of thrifts stores ( another post!!), a lively music scene, a great cinema showing all the latest releases, 'live at the Met' and an interesting mix of art films. There is a French film festival starting in March.
I will pass on some of the antique stores..... my favorite is Vintage on Vanguard Street, with a certain personal touch. Always well displayed, resonable and very friendly.
I'm also happy to frequent a terrific butcher, a super Swedish bakery , and Guytons, the best fish shop in the world.
Hurrah ....here for 6 weeks!
Welcome back to New Zealand. I have some vintage knitting patterns I would be happy to pass onto you if you would like them.ReplyDelete
thanks Linda....I am emailing you.Delete
You do get about without a crutch Jan (as my mother would say!). I like the look of those blankets. I am constantly stalking my local charity shop at the moment because our newest dog has a penchant for chewing up the dog bed blankets and I can get them there for a few euros. However, sometimes I like them and so still get upset when she shreds them. Ah, well - I'm sure she'll grow out of it. Have a great time in that lovely town.ReplyDelete
the blankets here are very nice. ( as one would expect in acountry with 10xs as many sheep as people)...I see lots of pastel checks which we don't seem to get at home.Delete
Lucky you--I love your NZ posts.ReplyDelete
Definitely a whole lot of warmth-envy going on from this part of the world!ReplyDelete
