Our Story

Thieving Kea was hatched from a timely opportunity presented to our family.A family who dearly loves to laugh, have outdoor adventures and hang with like-minded folks

Our vision is to create a unique space which reflects our values of integrity, honesty and sustainability. A space which offers all a welcoming and warm shopping experience, and they leave with a memory of being valued.
We believe it takes a village to raise a child.  We feel the same goes for our business. Thieving Kea’s village has many amazing humans, who had great influence on its creation.
Over many coffees, beers/wines and walks this village co-lab developed & implemented the interior design, product choices, and overall vibe & flow of the shop.

Our name, comes from the world’s only mountain parrot, who has made many a human laugh,
cross and challenged with their “thieving” ways. To honour this endangered New Zealand bird,
2% of our annual profit, from brand partners, will be donated to the Kea Conservation Trust.

We look forward to welcoming you to our small shop, on the lakefront of beautiful Wanaka.

See you soon, Becky & Jo.
