Delightful selection of local handmade crafts and other items. Small, inexpensive items, to larger, more expensive ..... Prices were reasonable and it was a wonderful experience, off the beaten path!

I have reviewed this place before 2015/16. but it does warrant another review in another, went there this week and honestly it is the only place to see a huge selection of local handmade and handcrafted goods, they specialise in Made in New Zealand and proudly support local talent. It's a shame that it is just on the outskirts of... More

From quick simple gifts to large exquisite or expensive gift ideas. Craft world is a co operative like no other. For ideas and variety ther is no other place like it.

We visited Craftworld enroute to Muriwai; it's an easy 20-30 minute drive from downtown Auckland and worth a visit if you are looking for locally made and unique gifts (not run of the mill China made stuff). Offerings include soft toys, apparel, accessories, stationery and home decor items. The quality is very good and prices very reasonable.

Management response:

We appreciate your feedback. You're right, the drive isn't so bad and the products you'll find at CraftWorld definitely make it worth it. More

A great place to buy locally well made souvenirs - huge range to choose from. Located in the original Westgate Centre, always plenty of parking. A highly recommended place to visit

Great idea, lots of little stalls with goods produced by different artisans, lots of handmade stuff. Anything from furniture to soap. Lots of good NZ stuff if you're going overseas. Also good if you're looking for things for yourself. I got a great pair of sheepskin slippers here years ago and they're still going.

If your looking to buy people's crafts and hand made items then this is probably the best place in Auckland to go. I thought it was a craft supply shop. No it is not.

If you are after buying locally made souvenirs or gift this is a perfect place to visit. You have a great collection to choose from. This shop is way ahead of your basic souvenirs shop. Stuff on display has been made in NZ by some local artist.
