12 Tips of Christmas: Black Door Gallery



Black Door Gallery is a curated collection of New Zealand artwork and objects – things of beauty and craft. It’s a special approach that can be seen right from large-scale works, down to greeting cards, jewellery, ceramics and chandeliers. If it’s creative, Kiwi and a work of art – you’ll find it here.

Gallery co-founder Mark Glasgow-Palmer’s top tip for Christmas retail success:

Xmas Tip #4:
“Make the Christmas tree a part of your merchandising.”

“We have these wonderful works that are up-cycled blankets, made into tree decorations. We place them, plus other works into a beautiful tree, so not only does it look good but it helps these great works find new homes,” says Mark.
