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.

Worth visit, house is amazing and art is inspiring, also found something to take back home. Place is unique in the middle of all these made in china/tourist rip off-shops. It s something real.

Stumbled across this fantastic art and craft store on the foreshore of Queenstown and loved it. Many unique items of interest and could easily have taken several items home that day. Would go back again if time permits.

What a cool place to buy art and decorative things for your home. The added bonus of this place is that it is in one of the oldest structures built in Queenstown. The wallpaper is from the 1930's. The water damage from the roof is visible in some of the rooms. Very friendly proprietor. If you visit in the winter,... More

Thank you for stopping by, even in winter! The water damage that you noticed on the wallpaper is actually from one of Queenstown's greatest floods in 1999. Stop by next time you are in the neighborhood. More

Has more arty souvenirs, hand made gifts and homewares, should be your first stop if you aren't interested in the mass produced crap.

If you are looking for a gift to take home, skip the t-shirts and head over here! You will see the large metal moa in the front of the shop. The gallery is full of treasures ;)

And good art inside! Loved space is the word that comes to mind, the owner's attention to detail in this gallery and outside the building, is very evident. Recommended.
