Built in an old apple cool store (where apples were stored at cool temperatures after being picked), the Cool Store Gallery has well priced 100% NZ-made art and craft work. Much of the work has a vibrant Pacific theme, produced by artists from the Nelson and West Coast regions; paintings, sculpture, textiles, paua-shell items, ceramics, glasswork, and jewelry line the walls. They have an arrangement with a local shipping company to get hard-to-travel-with purchases
home for you in one piece. Go there. Take your credit card!
