Shops That Rock ~ Iko Iko, Wellington, New Zealand…

Cuba Street in Wellington is home to a huge range of groovy shops. One Cuba Street cutie is Iko Iko. This darling shop is packed to the rafters with natty and individual goods. Iko Iko has a wonderful New Zealand section overflowing with tea-towels, dolls, salad servers and the like all made in New Zealand…which is very handy for presents for the folks back home.

I picked up a lovely friend, Maia, for Vinod. Vinod is the star of my other blog Vinod Likes To Party.

Iko Iko translates to “Let’s go”. I really recommend you do go to Iko Iko when next in Wellington.

Shops that rock ~ Nirvana Boutique

Nirvana Boutique Pondicherry

At 10 Suffren Street, Pondicherry you will find the Nirvana Boutique gift shop. Every time I visit Pondicherry I drop by this cute little shop to stock up on Indian pop art gifts. They are open six days a week from Monday to Saturday from 10am-1pm and 2pm-7pm.
