The Mandarin Tree is two years old and owner Claudia Aalderink threw a party in downtown Gordonton to celebrate.
It has been a fantastic two years, she says – “…with an incredible selection of artists and their beautiful artwork and we keep growing every week.
“We are proud to represent so many talented people and New Zealand-made art. Thanks to our lovely customers for helping us grow and helping to make the past two years so incredibly exciting and fun.”
Claudia’s daughter Isa took the following pics from the day.
