Though it says Willie Weavers at the bottom, they don't have much material for weavers, but they do have knitting patters and yarns. But the back of this cave-like shop is Fantasmagoria, the fancy dress, or rental costume, shop.
Kiwis love fancy dress parties, so they have people coming in and out all year round. We've been to a couple; the very first one we were invited to was in Auckland, about a month after we'd been in New Zealand. The hosts knew Ben wouldn't even think of getting into a costume, so they had one ready for him: a black, witch costume! What can I say; he had to wear it. And I don't have a photo of him in that skirt!
