Stop off at The Gold Nugget

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

While you are en­joy­ing the Ar­row­town Au­tumn Fes­ti­val, visit The Gold Nugget on the main street. This is one of New Zealand’s most iconic arts, crafts, and sou­venir stores. There was a shop on site in the 1880’s sell­ing mer­chan­dise to the gold min­ers. Later it was a sad­dlery, then a milk bar, and fi­nally in the 1950’s it be­came the first sou­venir shop in the district.

The old girl now has over 60 years un­der her belt con­tin­u­ously sell­ing an eclec­tic mix of gen­eral sou­venirs, wood­work, pot­tery, glass wear, Maori items, prints, orig­i­nal paint­ings, cloth­ing, and an enor­mous range of other items; this shop is a true trea­sure trove not to be missed. Ar­row­town is a place ooz­ing with char­ac­ter and his­tory; The Gold Nugget fits in with this de­scrip­tion per­fectly.
