Christmas is easily our favourite holiday season at Blackwell and Sons. So our clever design team at the shop has put together this series of ornament designs, celebrating some of Greytown's most beautiful buildings. Papawai Marae is just minutes from the heart of Greytown and is one of the most historically important marae in New Zealand.
Papawai has been home to Wairarapa Maori for hundreds of years, and in the late 1800s it was the focus of Kotahitanga, the national Maori parliament movement. It's still very much a community hub today.
Our Greytown Christmas Ornament collection is designed by Paul Rees (our friend and designer we have worked with for 25 years), locally made using sustainable materials and finished in either a silver, gold or copper surface. Collect all four for your home or send them to friends and family overseas who won't be home for Christmas this year.
Bicycles and e-Bikes
We deliver our bicycles all over Aotearoa New Zealand ourselves for a few reasons; we like to ensure your bicycle arrives in perfect condition and we also want you to be able to ride it immediately. We set your seat and handlebar height so you can ride comfortably and we listen and respond to any questions you have. We like to ensure we are minimising our fuel use and pollution so we like to schedule the most efficient delivery plan possible. That’s why it may take a month or two to get your bicycle to you.
We will despatch your purchase the same day or next day and we will email you courier tracking information so you know exactly where your package is. We try, wherever possible, to use recycled or compostable packaging. For orders under $200, we charge $9.90 towards the cost of the courier. For $200 or more, we cover it.
