Welcome to the Old Meadery

The Old Meadery in Fernside is the epitome of European style. The property, formally the historic Havill’s Meadery, has been transformed into Canterbury’s own slice of French or Italian countryside.

The vintage and antiques homeware and clothes store is set among immaculate gardens, groomed and replanted by the owners to be reminiscent of Provence or Tuscany.

Inside The Old Meadery is a trove of homewares that look like they’ve come straight from an Italian villa, with many items imported from Europe by owner Anette Drewery, hand-crafted by Anette and her husband Graeme, or curated from Kiwis who share the same exquisite taste.

On display is a combination of antiques, clothing, and homewares items that have been sourced by Anette from around the world. She has more than 20 years of experience in interior design and has a natural eye for what will work in your home.

The Old Meadery is a gorgeous European homewares and clothing store, and a must visit if you’re looking for something completely on trend or unique that no one else will have.

You can leave with one statement piece that would transform your room or all the little things – gorgeous European soaps, candles and crockery – that will give it the perfect finishing touches.

We look forward to meeting you.
