Everything to create wonderland
Christmas is in the air in the Village, with Christmas Wonderland opening its doors in Havelock Road.
The pop-up shop is the brainchild of Angela Vinaccia from Havelock North.
“It was a spur of the moment decision,” Angela said.
“I lived in Italy in Sorrento and from October to February all the tourist shops turned themselves into pop-up Christmas stores.
“So I thought why not? I followed that theme, jumped on a plane to Auckland and blew myself away in all the showrooms.”
Christmas Wonderland is full of beautiful Christmas trees, decorations, napkins, ribbons — and things that you won’t find in any traditional Christmas shop.
One of the most interesting things is the festive food.
Angela’s brother and sister in-law own La Bella Italia in Wellington and all the food is sourced from there.
Everything in Christmas Wonderland is for sale, including the furniture. There are fairies and nutcrackers — I could go on and on, Go and have a look for yourself.
Christmas Wonderland is right beside the Muse Gallery on Havelock Road.
