Meet the People - 16
Another in the series Meet the People - Ordinary and Extraordinary New Zealanders doing Interesting Things - Angela Bashnick has created a gorgeous spot, Port'O'Call - part gift shop, part old-fashioned tea shop - in Napier's popular portside suburb of Ahuriri. It's all romance, flowerbuds and feminism and if you're the sort who likes to reminisce about days gone by, this is the place for you. You can choose your own cup, plate and saucer from Angela's collection of old china; you can dress up in fancy hats; or you can simply indulge in the heavenly edible treats that she displays under glass domes. It's always inspiring to see someone thinking outside the square - especially when it comes to the hospitality industry.
