MILFORD - Everyone's place
Elegant gifts for everyone at Arazzo
Arazzo gift store has been a popular Milford shopping destination for the last 14 years. It has been owned and operated by Diana Takle since she opened it over a decade ago. Diana believes that she has her finger on the pulse of what her customers’ needs are, with a wealth of experience behind her.
“I believe you know the tastes of the people in the area you live in. I know that what I buy suits the people that I’m buying for. What sells in the city is completely different to what sells here,” said Diana.
Arazzo specialises in home-wares and gifts – mostly white, French inspired, and gorgeous! With Christmas quickly looming, it’s the perfect time to pop in and sift through the luxurious products which will make perfect presents for others, or for yourself.
“I love unwrapping the parcels of stock as they arrive and then gift wrapping them as we sell them. It’s great to see people’s enjoyment when they purchase items that we like too, and one of my favourite parts of the job is meeting new customers,” remarked Diana.
The shop stocks the divine French Cote Noir range – well priced products including hand creams, hand washes, candles, and moisturisers. Cotton nightwear is a big seller at the moment leading into summer, as well as jewellery
Christmas decorations have been racing out the door, with reds and greens taking a backseat behind whites, greys, silvers, and zincs.
The store has increased its opening hours in the build up to Christmas – Monday to Friday 10am-5pm, Saturday 10am-4pm, and Sunday 9.30am-2pm.
Diana is a true North Shore local. She lives in Devonport and loves the casual, laid back, and relaxed lifestyle on this side of the bridge. Her vision for the store is simple – “keep it small, intimate, friendly, and interesting.”
