We welcome callers to our shop. In the past 20 years we have been visited
by customers from as far afield as Russia, Argentina, The South Pole,
Oman, Alaska and of course many places in between.  We always keep a wide
display of items in our shop so there will always be plenty to see.

We are happy to accept payment by most modern forms including the

Credit cards. We can accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express,
JCB and any other related card. Our shop has an eftpos (Electronic funds
transfer point of sale) terminal so the commission charges to us on credit
card payments are very low and we prefer this method.  If paying by credit
card we require card numbers, expiry date and a signature.
We are also happy to have payments made by direct bank transfer to our
 bank accounts in New Zealand and Australia.
