The Old Post Office Country Store, Upper Moutere. The building has long been at the centre of the Upper Moutere community.
It is now home to an eclectic and beautiful grouping of gallery spaces displaying textiles, art, homeware and natural cosmetics from NZ producers and a carefully curated group of overseas artisans and craftspeople.
The Old Post Office is one of the few outlets for The Country Trading range of goods to help growers and makers in their endeavours to create a self reliant lifestyle, and we are of course the only outlet for the Moutere Gold range of preserves being made in the Moutere for the last 20 years.
Our Gallery spaces have an ongoing display of local artwork including the beautiful embroidery art of Fleur Woods Art and the orginal watercolour artwork from Bec Brown of Clouds of Colour in Golden bay. We are also fortunate to have a large range of collectible reproduction and original antique maps and botanicals of which many are only available at The Old Post Office.
Our large gallery space in the back of the building has a range of exhibitions throughout the year from both established and emerging artists. This space also hosts pop-up events and shops and is available for hire for workshops and other small events, such as business meetings, small birthday celebrations and get togethers.
