Hi Goina!
Got the box and everything is fantastic. Thank you! Your July newsletter was very sweet with the mention and photo of Riek doing a hongi with the wood carving. Such a great photo — you really captured her! I will be sure to get tips from you when I plan a Dutch vacation! You must be getting close to leaving soon - Happy travels! Don't forget a good greenstone fish hook for safe traveling...

Dear Goina ~ Greetings! I just got back to NYC last night. The korus were a huge hit! People loved them! I’m glad that I received one myself, as I think it’s gorgeous and have a nice spot for it in my bedroom. Thanks so much for helping get them here so quickly – there are a very special gift. That looks like a crazy storm!    In general, it seems like weather is getting more extreme all over.   I hope that wasn’t your car!

WOW thank you very much, I am very very pleased with the paddle, it is better than I expected. Please pass on my acknowledgement to the carver also. I was a little nervous when opening the package, but I was very gladly surprised with the carving when I saw it. I actually am very overwhelmed and all I can say is thank you thank you and WOW!!! Worth every cent!!
Warm regards

Hi Goina
I have been meaning to email you since the koru pendant I ordered arrived. I purchased it for an Italian friend who was heading home as a reminder of NZ. I have bought quite a lot of other greenstone jewellery in the past but nothing compares to the workmanship and quality of the one from Aotearoa. THANK YOU so much. Not only did it arrive in record time (I'm not sure how you did get it here so quick !!) and for a great price - but it is simply exquisite. Only problem now - is I look at my pounamu with new eyes - hmmmmm - have sent your website link to my husband so maybe next birthday... Thanks once again - the most beautiful I have ever seen.

Hi Goina,
Hope the weather in Auckland has improved since last we communicated. It's not too bad here at the minute with the sun out but they are forecasting rain for the weekend. Always full of doom and gloom these meteorologists. I reckon it makes their day. Anyway, just to let you know that I received the manaia today along with the two chocolates and I thank you for it all. I also want to thank you for trusting me by sending the manaia without having received the first one. I sincerely hope  it has arrived in the post. Once again many many thanks for everything and I look forward to doing business with you in the future. All the very best.

I just wanted you to know that I just got in the Maori Greenstone Hei Tiki!  It is a wonderful sight in person!  I am glad that it came with a traditional wax hanging cord as well.  I was a bit surprised how it was suspended through the back-a method I have never seen before! 

I also wanted to thank you again for the great New Zealand Whittaker's chocolate!  It has a very distinct flavor-very much unlike the chocolate found here in the United States.  Our chocolate-if its not top quality, is often bitter.  Hershey bars can be that way.  But this chocolate was truly unique! 

Thanks again for everything-and the quick shipping!
I am positive that we will again do business in the future!
Best regards for a bright future-for you, your business, and for the Maori culture!

Dear Goina,

I received my carved pendant on Nov. 30th. It is such a beautiful pendant, thank you so much. I have a bridal alteration shop, and one of my customers had visted New Zealand, and had this beautiful jade pendant on. I asked her about it , and said she purchased it in New Zealand. So I started searching the internet, and found you. Quite incredible how they carve the jade, I know I probably will never be able to visit New Zealand,
so at least I have a part of it. All my research shows what a beautiful country you have. Again thank you so much.

Sincerely,

Hi, I have just received the parcel from you, and I love the fork - it will be perfect for the person I want to give it to. Just a question though, I've noticed on the handle that it appears the fork is inside out - the writing (the brand of fork) is on the outside and is visible when wearing, whereas the design on the fork is on the inside. Are they all like that?

It's fantastic!! I received the package this afternoon and my daughter and I opened it together. We were thrilled and careful as we went through cutting away the bubble wraps and tape.
It's as if we were opening our very own christmas present.

Everything was intact and they both look OWSUM!! It's everything that your website pictured and more. We can't wait to give it to my son (bro) when his 21st comes round in early December.

Thank you so so much Goina and please thank your team back at home (Jason and his Dad). You should definitely get into the export market. you will do well in it!

We LOVE it!!

I will definitely keep in touch and will let you know when I come back to Auckland and drop in to see you and your team.

All the best in your new abode and with Gods' blessing, I wish you everything will be a huge success in your life.

I am very impressed with your ability to carry on business from afar.  Yes, the internet has assisted but you still need to be very structured and organised.  So congratulations !  My business, management consulting, needs face to face, so six weeks away is about the max. and I was dependant on the various internet speeds and connections as I moved around Europe. Take care. Best wishes,

Kia ora Goina ~ I promised to let you know when the book has arrived - and yes, it has! Eva und Daniel came back from their 4-months-trip by noon today!!! And they found the parcel from New Zealand in front of their door!

It couldn't have worked better! Thank you for wrapping it so nicely and for your letter to Daniel!

Now I am waiting for them to visit us in the UK at the end of June - to tell us a lot about their trip and to give us (my husband Gerd and myself) even more motivation to travel to NZ probably at the begin of next year...

Thank you very much again - it's all done very well!!

Hiya Goina! I totally forgot to email when my package arrived the other day. I was SO excited to see the big korus and my bowl and tuis, but I waited until I took the box home so that the items were still in the original packaging during the trip across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. My goodness, you, my dear, are a delicate item wrapping goddess! Everything arrived in PERFECT condition. I'm proud of my growing collection of korus from Venus Hot Glass. I'm up to six of them now. Thank you for the extra gift! I put it and some other things in the lovely bowl purchased and I have it on my dresser. It's serving as a "heart reminder" for people in Christchurch (and now in Japan) who have suffered earthquakes recently.
Have a good weekend!

Dear All,
I am writing from Germany and first of all I'd like to compliment you on your great site! The bone and greenstone carvings are amazing and all the information you provided about the different designs is so interesting. My grandparents brought me a greenstone tiki as a gift when they visited New Zealand. This was 16 years ago and since then (I'm 30 now) he has been with me ever since. I wear him always and somehow (I hope this does not sound presumptuous of me), I feel greatly connected to him.

Hi Goina ~ Hope all's well. Just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that everything came in, and despite Canada Customs and Canada Posts best efforts, everything was impeccable. I don't know how you and your team managed it, but I am impressed yet again. In any case, hope the weather's better in NZ than here. Winter has come screaming in, and we have received approx 3/4 metre of snow to date and the temperatures are hovering around -30C, and with windchill around -44C, so it's slightly chilly.

Hi Goina - Kia ora from California. You lied about the shipping time - it arrived so much faster than I expected! And the bowl is absolutely gorgeous. I may just keep it for myself and get my mom something else for her birthday ;-) Thank you!

Hi Goina - Thank you for emailing and order confirmed! Working in San Francisco & living just north of the Golden Gate Bridge makes me feel for you all with this huge earthquake - our fingers are always crossed for our own sake! So I hope the recovery goes well. And thank you for pointing out Greg's bowls in your newsletter - the one I ordered will be a lovely birthday present for my Mom's 70th in November. You can keep the spifes if you like - I have plenty already (4)! They are very cool though so if you already packed them up with the bowl, don't worry. Just trying to save some for your other customers ;-) Thanks again,

Hi Goina - The goat family arrived safely early this evening and are now 'resting' in the garage until I get the garden that they will sit in sorted out, which will not be until the rain has stopped, if it ever does! Luckily they arrived just as my husband and I got home or else the courier driver would not have had a hope of getting them out of the truck as they were all packaged together. PS: they look fantastic and once I have them in the garden I will send a photo.
Kind regards

Hi Goina - Thank you for dispatching my order so promptly. It arrived safe and sound this afternoon. I happened to be home sick when the post man arrived. The pukeko’s are lovely. I ordered one for me and one for my friend. I will wait until I get back from holiday before I put him in the garden. The spifes will come in really handy as I quite often take a kiwi to work for my lunch. Yet again you have come up trumps with your wonderful items. I will wait until a little nearer xmas to order the xmas decorations and some other items. The weather here is rotten. Rain and wind. I can only hope the weather improves for my holiday next week. I hope you are well and that your business continues to do well also. Best Regards

Hiya Goina! My package arrived today. The resin pieces are lovely (as I knew they would be!) and you may or may not want to know that I intend to hang them up someplace, either suspended from my ceiling or perhaps in my fig tree, which I have a variety of ornaments in for when it's bare-branched in the winter.

I told my brother that when my nephew has chewed his way through his first beautiful green New Zealand bandanna (which, by the way, is in Hawaii right now on vacation with the family) that we will "plant" it and he can "grow" a new one now that I have a lovely replacement at the ready if it's ever needed.

Thanks again for doing what you do. I'm going to give one of the special kiwifruit utensils to a friend of mine. She'll love it.

Thank you very much for sending the CD. My sister did an internship in Wanganui for 8 months and after that I visited her and we travelled through NZ in April. She told us about Tiki Taane, whom off course we don't know in Holland, so when I wanted to buy a CD for her it was quite a search! But luckily I found your site. I can't wait to give it to her! Thanks again,

Hi Goina - Yes. That would be wonderful thanks. My husband and I also cycled in the Netherlands last year and also cycled out to Schiermonnikoog and around it. We had a wonderful time. I wish that I could have brought a Dutch bike home with me to NZ.  They are great. But the bell will be the next best option!!! I am looking forward to getting my bell. They are the best around and that's why I ordered one as soon as I read about you selling them!!  Thank you.

Thanks Goina - Cant wait to receive it - its a very special present for a very special little girl who's been through an awful lot in her life and now has the chance for a new and better life - so the koru and its meanings of 'new beginnings' is very appropriate! I've ordered a few pieces from your site and they are just beautiful - being a kiwi living in London, I love the opportunity to give these gifts to my family and friends in the UK as they are truly gifts from 'home'.
