Wanda Harland Loves

If you're a local, or in Wellington or Petone for a holiday, here are some of our favourite things!



We love Sable. They're a hair salon, but they offer so much more. You can pop in and treat yourself to some great hair products but also they have an outstanding array of personal products, from menstrual to sexual wellbeing. I can heartily recommend their Tangle Teaser brushes, they're a game changer. Check them out online too at Sable or pop into their beautiful salon at 109 Featherston Street, Wellington.

Tilt Architecture

Not gonna lie, this is where Monsieur Wanda Harland, Glen Barris, works these days, but we think they're just a brilliant firm, loads of interesting projects on the go at all times and located just around the corner from our Willis St store, so Glen can bring us coffees. You can check them out here.


We're so lucky in Petone to be surrounded by wonderful businesses. Our immediate neighbour at Handles, Knockers and Knobs is the place to go for all your door handle hardware. Which sounds crazy, but once you start looking you'll realise! Very old school and not online, but they share our beautiful building.

Our other neighbours, The Spice Rack, is a haven for Indian spices and foods. We can't get enough of their lime pickle and mango chutney.

Down the road we just love Origin cafe, beautiful food (with some great vegan choices) and wonderful Ripe coffee, roasted right in the Hutt.
