Meet Anj & Barb - Rapt

RAPT is a one-off, unique and very special store run by local mother & daughter duo, Anj & Barb. Anj, a self-confessed shopaholic with a passion for styling and Barb, the chatterbox, stylist and customer guru are best friends and have a whole lot of fun running RAPT, sourcing and curating some of Auckland’s most unique and inspired Home & Giftware.


RAPT was first conceived in 2009 after the purchase of the Botany Surprizes store in 2007. Three websites, 2 shop fitouts, a temporary Store and a huge amount of hours, stress and love later and todays modern store is almost unrecognisable from its early roots.


Today the store plays host to one of the largest and most unique ranges of Designer Homeware, Fashion, Fragrance & Giftware you’ll find and customers feel totally indulged in this Aladdin’s cave of beautiful things. Located in the beautiful newly refurbished Garden Lane, which is now under full cover so great for all weather shopping.


"We are so passionate about our product and store & love our local community of shoppers. We've grown to know many locals and we’ve watched little kids grow into teens! Botany is such a lovely community and we are proud to provide such a special store that people love – we love the support and loyalty this incredible community has shown us over the years and we continue to find special product to bring you."
