We decided to go inside and have a browse. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. The Trading Circle is
"a non-profit company established by the Good Shepherd Sisters in Australia in 1995 to support women in micro-enterprises initiated by the Sisters internationally."They support a number of countries, helping women to earn a living so they can afford things like education for their children. I think if you can't find what you want (NZ made) then definitely give The Trading Circle a thought. They have a good range of products from children's gifts to home furnishings to scarves and bags. Here are just a few of the things we admired in store:
Calendar Wallhanging, Humpty Dumpty & Snow White Doll
Silk Jewellery Rolls
Coaster Set and Ñanduti doily
Blogger is refusing to upload photos for me at the moment grrr but definitely have a look at the site - it'll be well worth your time.
