Christmas is fast approaching – and with it an enormous desire to avoid the chaos around malls and the pressure to find the ultimate and unique gift.

Amberley’s Mumma T Trading Lounge is a one stop shop with Christmas gifts for everyone. This little emporium with trendy new and second-hand pieces is set to delight.

Step through the front door and you’ll be hit by the beauty of the new retro glass lights, stunning antique furniture pieces and bright glass cabinets that are home to fine and bold boutique jewellery. It’s an eclectic mix of modern and new and funky.

You could spend hours in here; browsing the unique show rooms set up by Mumma T (a.k.a – Trish) herself.

The business, owned and operated by Trish and Tim Coleman, has expanded greatly since they took it on in March 2015. It started out as a small shop front, before growing right to the back of the building, and it’s about to get bigger! Trish is currently working on stage three of the extension, with plans to add two more rooms, creating a clothing section and opening more space to display additional second hand treasures.

One year on and Trish says “it’s a thrill” running the store and meeting all of the foreigners and locals who take a look; “I’m really enjoying the business and being a part of the Hurunui community”.

So come on down, say hello and experience a sense of nostalgia while browsing the impressive branded old-tin collection, designer pillows, 70’s furniture and quaint tea sets.

It’s a trip through time with a modern touch. Check it out on Amberley’s main road – you can’t miss it!
