Any shop like Mr Price Home?
« on: August 17, 2013, 03:35:22 pm »
Hi everyone,

I'm stuck working out replacement values for things here for shipping purposes  :death: and from what I've seen online there doesn't seem to be a great decor market like in SA. I'm talking about the vases and ornaments and stuff you would get at Mr Price Home  :smitten:. The closest I've seen is some of the "Home collections" at the Warehouse.

So for those of you that live in NZ, is there something like Mr Price Home?

www.briscoes.co.nz and they're always having 60% off sales.  They do bedding, all kitchenware, bathrooms, laundry, ornaments etc.  Also www.farmers.co.nz but more pricey.  For furniture try Big Save, Harvey Norman, Target Furniture.  We didn't bring any kitchenware except appliances, replaced everything here from Briscoes.  We brought only major items that were still fairly new like our beds, fridge etc.  Just be careful because the bedding sizes here are different, so if you bring your beds you will need to buy some duvet covers and sheets in SA for future use here.  We like the minimalist look so are not big on lots of ornaments and nicknacks.
