About Us

Established in 1979. Catering to the discerning shopper by stocking the original core brands such as Moorcroft, Waterford Crystal, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, Aynsley, Lladro as well as both traditional and modern examples of cut crystal.

We have 22 metres dedicated to Swarovski crystal. This is the first independently owned Swarovski Boutique in Australasia. The China Shop has an extensive range of giftware, home decor, jewellery and watches. Talk to our friendly staff about membership to the SCS (Swarovski Crystal Society).

The China Shop specialises in Moorcroft Pottery and has over 100 pieces in store to choose from. Pots range from open editions, limited and numbered editions to prestige pieces. We also have some patterns that soon become sought after once they have ceased to be produced.

The China Shop celebrated a quarter of a century of trading in September 2004 and Moorcroft produced a limited edition pot designed by Phillip Gibson in the popular 65/6 shape. The edition of 150 has well sold out so if you see a 'Manuka' vase with our special back stamp it would be an investment to any collection.

The China Shop staff are passionate about their products and strive to give exceptional service - they want shopping at the China Shop to be a fantastic experience and 'worth travelling miles for'.

The China Shop is one hour south of Christchurch and situated at the northern end of the Ashburton Arcade on Burnett Street. The Arcade runs parallel to the Main South Road between Burnett and Tancred Streets.
