About Pushkar Trading Company
Myself (Alyson) and my family have decided to have a lifestyle change, from the bright lights of the city to the sunny Hawkes Bay.
Yes, Pushkar is coming with us. We have a 380 sqm retail shop which we are very excited about opening.
I will also be the stockist for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, along with workshops on Chalk Paint.
This is my story on how Pushkar came about:
Alyson Wilcock has been a Tour Guide Specialist travelling to India for many years. During that time, many of Alyson’s travelling clients found the beautiful ancient furniture and textiles a must to have and sought out Alyson’s expertise on how to bring these pieces back home to New Zealand.
With this in mind, Alyson decided that she would also bring some of these delights back to Hunua and let everyone have a chance to view and purchase. “Being on the ground (so to speak) I can bring containers in direct from India and showcase them for everyone to enjoy and purchase. I have many contacts in Rajasthan, India and with knowledge of the local area, most of these pieces are a ‘one-off’ and once it has gone that’s it. Some of the furniture and doors are from hundreds of year’s old temples that have been demolished and are a sight to see and a must to have” says Alyson.
We have been going 5 years in February and this has been an amazing journey and we look forward to our new adventure.
We ship all over the North Island. South Island we need to quote separately.
I still do guided tours every year to India, so if you feel you would like a little adventure and amazing memories you can find out more by sending an enquiry, or contact Alyson direct
