Hi, we are John and Sally Olds and we opened our store in 2016. Previously, every year we made lots of trips into Kirkcaldie and Stains (Wellington, New Zealand) Christmas department to select items from their wonderful selection and when they closed we knew we had to do something.
Our home is decorated in a different Christmas theme every year from Gingerbread decorations to Snowmen (one year we even had a Pirate theme) and just about every tree decoration colour imaginable.
We are Lower Hutt residents and Wellington Christmas Company is a family owned and operated business. Our sons and daughter in law are all involved and assist whenever they can or are called upon for their precious advice and guidance. Our grandchildren (little as they are) are rapidly becoming product testers. To see the look on their faces, how their eyes light up when they see some products is just amazing. In addition to everything else, John does all the handyman jobs and is constantly shuffling trees around during the lead up to the big day.
Our aim was to bring a wide selection of quality Christmas items into our store – from whimsical, traditional, stylish, quirky and just fabulously fun to transform any home. We love meeting and chatting with all our customers about a subject that we adore and we want to help all our customers create the Christmas they want.
Our store is at at 216 High Street, Lower Hutt. Every February and March we spend time with wholesalers and at Gift Fairs searching for those unique items that will inspire us all with our decorating for the Christmas season and beyond. This year we have bought some very special and different Christmas goodies including a new range of Lemax, Christmas lanterns, Santas, Reindeer, Snowmen, Gingerbread men, Crackers, Lights, Christmas trees, Decorations and much more. It will be all at Wellington Christmas Company for 2019. Make sure you follow our website & Facebook page for updates. Thanks to all the Christmas lovers who have pushed our likes to over 2,700.
