He knew I had been wanting to go to The Ribbon Rose in Ellerslie so he dropped me off there to start my day.
This is an incredible shop and if you haven't been before I'd allow at least an hour to look at everything. Just when you think you have seen everything, you find another room with more goodies. It was really hard to decide what to buy as I loved everything.
As my husband had a work vehicle (I'm not allowed to drive it) I had to use public transport. I had a little adventure travelling around Auckland.

|Britomart. All you have to do is go up the elevators and you are in Queen St.|
Here's some more photos from the rest of my day.
|I crossed the road to get the ferry to Devonport, as I waited I shared a biscuit with the sparrows|
|The Seagulls were jealous, but I like the Sparrows better so they missed out!|
|The Ferry coming into to Auckland.|
|On the ferry looking back at down town Auckland|
|When I got off the ferry this was waiting, but I decided to walk around Devonport.|
|Window shopping at the toy shop. (Hey Lynne, Ron would love this!)|
|And here's the shop I had come over to see|
|I only purchased a small fabric pack, but it is an amazing shop.|
|Wandering around I found an emporium (Ike's I think) and bought some braids|
|Then I found an Op shop (thrift shop) and got a bit carried away buying wool|
|On the ferry ride back I thought this new building on the waterfront looks like a caterpillar. |
I'm guessing it is 'party central' for the Rugby World Cup.
