This shop surprised me. From the outside it looks like an old cottage - which it is -that might have had a couple of things of interest. It turned out to be bigger than expected and perhaps the most interesting shop I found in Queenstown....More

This store is filled with beautiful and unique gifts made by artisans from New Zealand. I bought two gorgeous bowls and they were reasonably priced. It is also a treat to walk through this extremely old house that has a history of its own. Check...More

What a lovely little stop we discovered! This shop/gallery has a beautiful range of NZ style art and decorations, but the building itself is just as much of a gem. So rich in history and a landmark of the community. I highly recommend taking a...More

Locals only art wares for sale in this funky cool 1920's bungalow home just at edge of waterfront very near the Novotel Hotel. I think the cottage as interesting as the art. Well worth dropping in to explore every little room's sales. This is a...More

Located next to the lake is this beautiful colonial home, that is now a gallery of art, we had had a really nice time exploring the rooms, admiring all the items on display. Definitely worth a visit for something different from the usual souvenirs.

This is a very special place to visit and do take the time to read the history about the house. Amazing old wallpapers and it is quite big for a home of this age. The art works and collections are lovely.

Vesta is a beautiful shop, from the cheerful garden out front to the well curated NZ artwork collections filling the little rooms of the wooden cottage. Well worth to set aside some time to visit Vesta during your Queenstown visit.
