The-Tannery-2

During a rather impromptu trip down to the South Island I was lucky to pay a visit to the brand new boutique shopping centre, The Tannery. Oh wow. Christchurch, you have seriously upped your shopping game! Seriously, stuff like this in Christchurch just doesn’t exist. Really. This beautifully renovated former tannery (surprising, no?) built in 1881, is home to some of the quirkiest shops that disappeared after the big earthquake. I ventured in for a dash of window shopping, but even that was a treat! Everything is incredibly detailed –  right down to the tiny gold cherubs near the glass roof! Giant black lampposts are dotted around the outside of the building, making you feel as if you’re really having a browse around an exclusive London boutique. Be sure to stop by if you’re in Christchurch, New Zealand. This beautiful place is definitely worth a look (or two!)
