Two great stores in one place

A mother-daughter duo has created a business that incorporates both their interests and creative talents to combine a most unique store.

Whether you’re after an unusual piece of art, traditional German Christmas ornaments, made-to- measure tableware or quality giftware, Kinship Gifts is the place to visit.

Mother Sabine, originally from Germany, has been in the store for 20 years as a dressmaker – ‘Two in One’ on Cambridge Rd.

Earlier this year, when Sabine’s daughter Arwyn returned to Tauranga after 20 years away, they decided to collaborate and share the premises.

“We share the same sense of humour and have real fun together. We bounce off each other brilliantly and customers that come in love to be a part of this experience,” says Arwyn.

Arwyn had the idea to start a business that offers New Zealanders an alternative and unique variety of gifts that revolve around the German traditions she grew up with.

Kinship Gift is the answer if you are looking for a gift for that someone special.

Kinship Gifts and Two in One Dressmaking are located in the Cambridge Heights Shopping Centre, 3/158 Cambridge Rd, Bethlehem and the joint store is open 8am-5pm Monday to Friday and 9am-12pm on Saturday.
