Xia is a really great store, and as far as I know, reasonably unique in Auckland. They sell a big range of “Chinese” items here, from ornately carved wooden day beds through to rice paper parasols through to kites through to little notebooks. It’s a great place to go to if you’re looking for something specific for your home, or on the other hand, if you just want to buy something that’s a little different from the norm. With such a range of stock, obviously some things have a much bigger price tag than others, but it all seems reasonably priced. The owner is really friendly and has been more than willing to help out when we’ve approached him about hiring furniture for events.
