Akaroa Shop Creation
Welcome to the photo essay of the creation of our new shop in Akaroa.
Akaroa is a small, gorgous town on Banks Peninsula, about one and a half hours drive from Christchurch. It was first settled by the French and today still has a french feel to it. Simply put, its one of the cutest towns in New Zealand.
We have opened a shop down on the water front in the old part of town,at 69 Beach Road. Our new shop is between the famous Akaroa Fish & Chip Shop and the Akaroa Wharf.
