Ev­ery­thing to cre­ate won­der­land

Havelock North Village Press - - Home Living - BY LINDA HALL

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.
