About Us

Hello friends

My name is Tobias and I set up the Paihia Bookshop (in it's current form) in 2018 with my sister Katie.

We both love New Zealand and Books and Games which is why we moved over from Australia and embarked on this adventure in the beautiful Bay of Islands.

We have New Zealand Post and Kiwibank in-store as well but our first love is books and games.

Katie had to leave Paihia in 2020 which means I am missing the book conversations, the game sessions, and sibling trolling.

So come by, have a chat, and find something you'll love in the Paihia Bookshop
