Nestled in the historic Mahars Drapery building on the sunny side of Lyttelton’s main street, Henry Trading is the kind of shop you might struggle to only visit quickly – that amount of lovely, interesting and well-made things requires a good chunk of time to be admired.

The space is brimming with goodies and gifts from candles to ceramics to natural skin products to toys and beyond. But there’s one common theme weaving its way through this tempting eclectic collection that goes deeper than just beautiful appearances – a devotion to quality and care – items that are made to last and made to love.

There’s also a heavy focus on supporting local and national makers at Henry Trading with plenty of Lyttelton-made goodies such as soaps, ceramics and flower presses dotting the zig zag of well stocked shelves.

Originally named Portico and housed a few doors down, Henry Trading relocated to its current spot after the 2011 earthquakes and owner Maree Henry quickly worked her magic on the space, transforming it into a beautiful and much loved little haven of good things made by good people. A simple ethos that makes this charming spot a favourite for anyone who sets foot inside.
