Team Napier represents our collective mauri, the local spirit and strength of our great community.
In the spirit of Second Hand September, an Oxfam campaign that encourages people to only buy second hand for the 30 days of September and in turn be kinder to our planet, we’re shining the spotlight on a handful of the exceptional and quirky second-hand stores and recycle boutiques right here in Napier.
From antiques, furniture, books and homewares to jewellery, Art Deco fashion and designer clothing, there is something for everyone – even if you didn’t know you needed it yet.
Love your local, whatever it may be: a chippie, a florist, a bookshop or a bakery, the people and places that make up our neighbourhoods all deserve a little love. They’re a short walk away, handy to home, they know your name (or your dog’s name), better still you know them.
Our local shops are the hub, heart and central hang-out of our suburb. Support them so they can keep going, stay in the area, and add some vibrancy to your neck of the woods.
