Kaikoura has always been home. Despite years away, earthquakes and drastic changes to the coastline, it's where we come back to. Owning a boutique in Kaikoura was always a dream, we'd been talking about it for years, but didn't see it happening this soon. But then, things fell into place, perfectly. A store became available in town and we were looking for an excuse to come home.
Addy & Lou is a family business. While we're from a family of dairy farmers, we're girls and can't deny our love for beautiful things. Addy & Lou (from our middle names, Adelaide and Louise), is the perfect excuse to surround ourselves with luxurious linens, stunning jewellery and gorgeous leather bags from some of our favourite suppliers. It's basically a collection of the things we love, that we hope you'll love too.
But, this store is about more than what we sell. It's about bringing Kaikoura back to life, creating a shopping destination for visitors to our town and encouraging tourists back to this part of the world. Addy & Lou is just one part of getting Kaikoura back to how it was, and we hope you embrace our dream.
