About Us

The creation and giving of creative gifts has always been a passion.  Sales and communication has always been a career.  The Eastern suburbs was the place of my child and teenagehood, and for the most part, Auckland has always been my home.  Combine all of these and you have the history behind Velveteen.

I am a gift store with a little bit of the usual and a little bit of the unusual.  You can pop in for something specific, or come and browse for inspiration amongst the many wonderful examples of art and design.

I hope to get to know you and work with you to become your “go to” for all your gifts, and just to get to know you.
