Southern Paua Shop & Factory reviews
Having read reviews and articles about the Paua shop I built it up in my head and so in reality was disappointed. However, on the plus side they did have some nice bits. more »
This shop in Kaikoura is the best shop to buy Paua shells and local souvenirs. It has a large collection of Paua shells and pricing is reasonable. Certainly would very highly recommend visiting this..... more »
Beautiful shop, sells a wide ranging local jewellery made of paua shell and slide stones. Parking spots available at the door. Close to city centre, with in walking distance. Disable and wheels chair accessible front door. Reasonably priced products.
Calling this place a souvenir shop just don't do it justice. This place has been around for 50 years and is a pioneer of the polished paua shell industry in New Zealand! It produces 40,000 shells a year and is capable of doubling this capacity! So it is a wholeseller as well, and has a workshop where people can view some of its production process, with a small exhibit introducing the polishing method and describing different types of shells. Its pieces are beautiful and at good prices. Not to be missed for anyone who wishes to understand more about these beautiful shells.
