I was about to leave Christchurch when I realized that I did not show you the City Mall called Re:START which is made entirely from shipping containers. City mall is somewhat of a misnomer as there was not much of a city left in this part of Christchurch after the earthquake.
The shops are almost exclusively fashion shops and cafes. The famous merino and possum knitwear is very popular with tourists and a few shops specialize in this soft woolen blend.
In workshop you can see this popular cafe from the front (you will be surprised) and another photo shows you some of the fashion boutiques.

A superb trio of images. I have not seen or heard of this initiative before and applaud the use of these containers in such an enterprising way. The sunlight has given some lovely shadow areas inside the café and the red colour of the exterior and chairs is eye-catching.
Excellent - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann
