Imagine you work for a big organisation. In an office. You have a desk and a chair and everyday you turn up and sit, and wait. But nothing ever happens.
You begin to suspect that the department has been here so long that the Organisation has forgotten it exists.
After a while you get bored just sitting and being an imaginative soul you decide to do something to fill in your time. A painting perhaps (the walls do look a bit bare), or some sewing (a cushion would help the sitting), or some cheery bunting, or you could make some jewellery or a cheeseboard or . . . or . . .
Where innovation is celebrated and the imagination set free.
The Department of Curiosities and Fine Things promises to be a truly different experience for shoppers - themed throughout in a 'times past' government office department-overtaken-by-creative-wonderfulness style. There are over 20 individual makers and creators' products on display.
Come find us at 14 Hastings Street, Napier (opposite the Cathedral), open Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm.
