About Us

One of the oldest buildings in Geraldine has been home to The Cottage Pantry & Gallery since 2012.  Formerly home to Douglas McKechnie, Mayor of Geraldine, the building is now owned by Timaru District Council. I took over the business in 2014 and have loved every minute of it, learning about ingredients and getting to know my new community. The range has grown considerably over the years and I’m always happy to try and source new products for you. In addition to the ‘Pantry’, come and explore the attached Heritage cottage where you’ll find  Handmade Chocolates, British Sweets,  Kiwi Favourites, Dutch Liquorice, stunning Fine Bone China, Porcelain, Jewellery, Accessories and did I mention Greeting Cards?  I have an extensive selection!  Geraldine is well known for its Art scene and impressive Artwork from local professional and amateur artists adorn the walls. Open every day from 9am to usually around 7pm so come in and have a look, I’d love to see you and have a natter.
