Hello, and welcome to Emma’s at Oxford. A unique Book, Gift and Clothing Store Store in Oxford, North Canterbury which is a short (and picturesque) 45 minute drive from Central Christchurch.
Emma’s at Oxford opened in June 2007 and has grown and evolved over the last 12 years into what you see today.
After a stressful career in corporate retail I was ready to ‘do something radical, different and for myself’ that had to incorporate my love of food, cooking and cookbooks - well, books in general really. Relocating from Auckland to the picturesque country town of Oxford, the shop has gone from strength to strength since opening with a greatly expanded range from the initial offering becoming as some call it, “the best (not so) little book shop in Canterbury”.
At Emma’s you will find a lovely haven away from all the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the eclectic range of personally chosen books on offer. The depth of our range often sees customers commenting "what an incredible selection of books! you never see these in other bookshops."
In 2016 the shop literally doubled in size giving us the opportunity to expand on the clothing ranges we had started to delve into. This saw the creation of "Emma's Wardrobe - Clothing for Women Who Love Style". With quality labels such as MerinoMink, Pol, Mesop and more to come there really is something for everyone at Emma's.
Here on our website you will find a large selection of our most popular items and latest arrivals but if you can’t find exactly what you are after please drop us a line and ask as we may just have it or, something similar and I do enjoy the fun and challenge of shopping by text/messenger. Here at Emma’s we are here to help.
Please also follow us on Facebook and Instagram as we are always posting news and new goodies on their too.
Thank you for stopping buy and we look forward to helping you.
