Our Story

We are a 7 day a week small Boutique in a small town called Otaki. (45 mins from Wellington via the expressway) 

We have been in business over 35 years and the Store was started by Penelope Bertelsen and then became a Mother/Daughter Business for many years until Rachelle took it over over 15 years ago.  Penelope still visits us INSTORE to cast her eye over what we are up to.  And partakes in some of our Staff festivities. 

We employ 3 very loyal and experienced staff members who will go above and beyond for you. We are also very family orientated and my staff members are also my friends.

Penelope’s went Online when Covid hit and it has been a great tool for our customers and a great success, keeping us up to date with new ways to get our product out there. 
We aim to make your experience with us very stress free and casual with a small town friendly vibe.  
We hope you enjoy your time dealing with us
