34 George St
Next time the gypsy in you rambles out to Port Chalmers for the day, take a wander down the main street and find yourself at home at the Two Gypsies, and you may even meet another rambler from a cruise ship moseying through there too. A home-ware store with gifts and furniture from the Orient, Two Gypsies offers art, accessories, cushions and glassware with a distinct Eastern style to the people of Port Chalmers. The store also proudly stocks a wide range of furniture built from recycled teak wood, and a variety of candles, incense and soaps will keep your nose happy too!
The owners (apparently two gypsies themselves) gather these bits and bobs on their travels, ensuring that all stock is sustainably and ethically produced, and also forming a relationship with the makers of the goods whenever they can. They bring back their findings to their large store in Port Chalmers, offering Otago a wide range of special pieces that you would have to jump on a jumbo jet to find anywhere else.
