On a recent roadie though the Waikato we took a detour to look for vintage crystal and what a treasure trove we found in Paeroa. You might associate this town with Lemon and Paeroa, but there’s so much more … fossicking in the antique shops could easily fill an afternoon.
Vintage crystal is all the rage and it’s popping up in some of the most unlikely places like the Sanderson Hotel, London. It’s one of the cities funkiest hotels and part of the Mondrian Group, with the interior fit-out by designer Philip Stark. Along the length of their stunning 20 metre bar are a variety of crystal glasses with tee-light candles.
If you are into collectables or reminisce about things you remember from your grandmother’s home get yourself to Paeroa.
