Michael is part owner and the brain behind the business. He can sell anything and everything to everyone with a mind geared for having his fingers on the pulse of the latest trends while keeping an eye on price points. Michael studied a Business and Marketing Degree at AUT giving him the knowledge to be able to provide the best to our clients. Michael lives with Selwyn in Kumeu with their three fur babies, Mini, Moke & Cooper, along with their family of cows. He loves his coffee and a glass of Coke Zero, or anything by Fashion Designer Alexander McQueen.
Selwyn is part owner and resident “Creative Director”. He is responsible for bringing our ‘Santa’s Grotto’ to life with his product selection and creating our renowned breath-taking displays. His creative mind is our secret weapon. He helps inspire people to display their goods in different ways and give them ideas so that they may have that creative edge. A chef by trade, ex-real estate agent, and runs the lifestyle block in Kumeu where he and Michael live, there isn’t anything Selwyn can’t do. He has a passion for good food, great wine, vintage cars, 80’s music and amazing shoes.
