About

Welcome.

We are physically located at 14 Hastings Street, Napier, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. The Department of Curiosities and Fine Things is a curated collection of handmade products from some of the finest creative makers in New Zealand. While it is far better to see our products in the flesh we have created this online shop to cater to those of you who can’t make it in.

This eclectic collection is wrangled into shape by three makers who go by the name of “The Curators”  . . . . Andy Heyward of Fat Spatula,  Michelle Ransom of Circo, and Mel Stothers of Wildflower Designs.

Our Hours

Currently our store is closed for the lockdown period set by the Government – due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic. We hope to be open again asap.

We are open seven days a week all year except Christmas day, Good Friday,  Easter Sunday and Anzac Day (when we open at 1pm).
