mysteries as well as a Bogor comic book, which still made me laugh. It’s open Wednesday from 10am, Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. It’s well worth a visit if you are up for a visit to the Saturday Matakana Farmers’ Market.

My favourite buy so far is an E. Drayton painting done in 1977.

How much you spend depends on who is working behind the counter on the day. The shop is on Matakana Valley Rd on the same side as the movie theatre.
