Tea Pea is a mecca of colour, fun and design happiness! A major part of what I loved about my visit was the winding drive up into Khandallah – as a first timer in that area of Wellington I was shocked at the green, tree lined streets that clung to the hill with views of the harbour. Its really beautiful!
Tea Pea sits proudly on a corner of the Khandallah Village main street and the neighbourhood vibe was obvious with children and friends popping their head in the door to mix with the steady stream of customers.
Sparky, creative owner Meg McMillan (who runs the business with her husband Scott) is a relaxed and friendly host with a seriously awesome curative eye for both what she stocks and the way she presents her space – the result is more magnetic, colourful treasure chest than stock standard homewares store!
Wellingtonians and visitors should most definitely cruise on up to have a browse but for the rest of us? Their online store is heaving with goodness from brands in NZ, Australia and further a field.
