The WOMAD NZ Boutique stalls are smaller sites and have their own area located within the Retail Area of the Global Village. A Boutique Stall is a site where vendors can sell niche products and will appeal to those traders with a smaller volume of stock. Think pre-packaged food goods that require no cooking like preserves, dips, honey, and other specialised products that are niche.
