Inside the Arcade: Eva & Elle


One of the latest retailers to open up inside The Arcade is Eva & Elle, a cute boutique selling clothing and gifts for those that love colour. Owner Eva Lourenco tells us a little more about the treasures to be found in her adorable store…



Eva & Elle - is a family owned business based in Auckland, New Zealand.  We showcase products that are designed and made in New Zealand or from overseas.  Due to our interest in a variety of things, our eclectic collection includes quality products with a splash of colour. We are passionate about handmade products due to their uniqueness, quality & creativity and we hope to grow our product offerings.

Knowing we wanted to open a retail store, we were drawn Devonport because of its history, architecture and picturesque surrounding and especially the artisans. It was during our hunt for retail space that we found The Arcade and we knew it was the type of cosy spot we were seeking. We loved the Arcade’s rich history, the architecture and the refurbished store ticked  some of the boxes for us.

Although we have been operating online for some time, it’s the interaction with people that we value. It allows us to understand the needs of our customers, to offer quality products and make improvements. It’s the stories that we hear from the customers which motivates us to get better.

We're passionate about handmade products and would like to get to know people who have an idea but don’t know where to start. We would like to talk to individuals to collaborate and create some opportunities which would benefit everyone.  Contact us directly online or in-store.

We’re really looking forward to the summer months when Devonport really shines. We’re looking forward to helping our customers choose their little treasures to put under the tree for loved ones. So definitely pop down and say hello next time you’re in Devonport.
