About Wells Trading Company
We had talked about owning our own business most of our lives. Our initial business
started in our parent’s garage at the age of seven when we both decided we would
set up a travel agency. The Wellington garage was so cold we had no choice but to shut up
shop and our business dream was put on hold.
Decades later after we both got married, had children and waited for a world pandemic, we
decided it would be an ideal time to set up shop... Thankfully people love Wells and the gamble has paid off.
Wells Trading Company is named after our mother, Judith Wells. She was born on a farm
in Taranaki. Raised in a beautiful farmhouse, with a lake out front, she and her siblings learnt to swim and cool
off after hours of tennis. She grew up miles away from any shops and once a
week, she and her three sisters would travel into town to buy supplies and an
ice cream cone.
She would tell us stories about the shops she visited and her dream of owning some red shoes her
mother wouldn’t allow her to buy (apparently too tarty!). Mum loved shopping,
it transported her from a world of sheep, dirty gumboots, and thick wool
jumpers to a world of fashion and beautiful things for her, much dreamt about,
Mum often helps in the shop, you can find her there on the weekends fussing around, chatting to
customers or popping out for coffees. At 76 she’s what we call an “active
relaxer” a trait she inherited from her father, William Wells.
The shop is a collection of goods you will find in all our homes, visit one of them and you
will feel like you are in the shop. Our ethos is quality and timelessness. We
source products from all over the world, with the origins of the products being
very important to us. Towels from Turkey, bags from Paris, ceramics from
Portugal to name a few. Belinda loves to find items of beauty and practicality
to enhance your home, and her key goal is to make sure that item will be in
your home for a lifetime.
We believe your home is your sanctuary, it's a place to escape, restore
and spend time with our favourite people. So, it's incredibly important to us
to help you create a home that is uniquely personal to you.
You will find us in the shop on most days, it’s our home away
We look forward to seeing you soon.
