Magpie Style welcomes Antipodean Trader into its nest.

We are thrilled to announce an exciting development that marks a new chapter in the story of Magpie Style. Today's acquisition of the beloved homewares store, Antipodean Trader, located in the quaint Normans Road Village in Christchurch, is a fusion of passion, aesthetics, and a shared vision for an extraordinary lifestyle.

Antipodean Trader, known for its unique and fabulous carefully curated finds, has carved a niche for itself in the hearts of homeware enthusiasts around New Zealand.


Its treasure trove of items has not only beautified homes but also added stories and characters to spaces. Magpie Style, with its keen eye for fashion, beauty, and now, homeware, is set to increase it's offering online and now across two stores in Canterbury.

Kim O'Sullivan, the visionary founder of Antipodean Trader, shared her enthusiasm: "I am so excited to pass the baton on to Bridget and about what is to come for Normans Road and the store. Bridget has an incredible sense of style and a passion to bring all the things for you to create a beautiful life. Our shared commitment to excellence and beauty is set to create a haven for those who seek the extraordinary. I am thrilled to see our collection find a new home and reach a wider audience, all while retaining the essence that makes Antipodean Trader so special."

Bridget Hope, Magpie Style Director, echoes this sentiment with equal enthusiasm: "This is a landmark moment for us. The addition of Antipodean Trader's exquisite homewares to Magpie Style not only diversifies our offering but also strengthens our mission to curate and provide unparalleled beauty in every aspect of our customers' lives. We are excited to embark on this journey, bringing a slice of Christchurch's charm to homes across the country."

"Kim's visionary sourcing, styling and curation has been such a benefit to Christchurch and it is a privilege to be able to follow in her talented foot-steps."
