Get Down To The Knitty Gritty

If haberdashery is what threads your needle, then the Habby Shack in Napier is a dressmakers dream come true. Anything and just about everything you will need to knit, sew, embroider and weave is sold at Habby Shack. The shelves and drawers are laden with a magnificent selection of unique fabrics, quality yarns, and all the added odds and ends that are needed to round a garment off. Added to this, Habby Shack offers a cosy workspace and clients are invited to discuss and plan their projects or just relax at Fragrant Food Café (which shares the premises) as they happily knit or crochet the day away. A pattern library, second-hand book store and a vintage clothing range sold under the name of Mrs Robinson, are just a few more of the treasures that can be discovered at Habby Shack. Furthermore, there is a craft group that meets at Habby Shack on Thursdays that is not to be missed.

Vintage Clothing

Does the thought of shopping for pre-loved vintage garments get your hair in a total bee-hive? Do classic frocks from the 40s, full-skirted dresses from the 50s, psychedelic hotpants from the 60s and bell-bottoms straight out of the 70s make you super happy? Then you will absolutely love Mrs Robinson’s clothing rails at Habby Shack. As you probably guessed, the name Mrs Robinson was taken from the popular Simon and Garfunkel song. The collection gets added to on a regular basis and is sure to produce that signature piece you have been searching for.
