Flying fish design store is located in Paihia in New Zealand’s stunning Bay of Islands and was opened in November 2003. Our aim was to showcase some of New Zealands most creative designers and artisans and provide a shopping experience that would appeal to overseas visitors and New Zealanders alike.
Due to its uniqueness flying fish design store has proven to be very popular with both locals and visitors to this major tourist destination with many customers making further purchases after they return home.
We have recently relocated and the store now includes an Art Space featuring some of New Zealand’s finest glass, ceramics and contemporary art. With the introduction of our on line shopping it will be much simpler for our more distant customers to continue shopping with us.
We have always taken pride in our excellent customer service and we intend to maintain the same high standards with our on line customers as we do in our store. Our team is comprised by Trevor Grass and Gillian Campbell (owners) and three exceptional staff – Joanne, Patricia and Adi.
