After the success of a pop up shop at Christmas time New Zealand based designer Ellen Giggenbach has taken the plunge and opened her very own retail store "ELLEN G" in Petone near Wellington. The shop is in a lovely big airy space and filled with a large variety of products all featuring Ellen's wonderful art. Ellen makes as much as she can herself (the wall hangings, cushions and paper products/craft kits) and the rest are produced for her such as bags, mugs, floor mats, note books, etc. It’s been a lot of work but at last after many years of dreaming Ellen has made it a reality! The store has been very well received and she has had lovely people all over the world saying they wish there was an ELLEN G in their neck of the woods. The final chapter in her dream would be if someone saw her potential and decided to open an ELLEN G in their area wherever that might be.
