In June 2017 I was walking with my partner and flatmate to get dinner. We had decided to go to Nuffield St in Newmarket even though it was raining for the 20th time that day. Yay #auckland !

We were talking about how we couldn’t name any of the retail shops that were on Nuffield St aside from the food places. We could, however, name things that we had remembered seeing in the windows.

One of us quipped something like “it would be great if you could see all of these shops online in one place”. During that time I was also looking to replace my bed frame. The one I had was far too low to the ground and living in an apartment with no storage, I had decided to upgrade the frame so I could store my junk underneath.
Simple task, right?
I couldn’t for the life of me find a bed frame that was:
- Simple
- White
- Fit storage boxes underneath
- Didn’t cost thousands of dollars

I just couldn’t find what I wanted online. Correction. There were plenty of photos of what I wanted but none that were from a New Zealand Retailer. I searched and gave up multiple times.

I knew there was someone in Ponsonby who made pine furniture but I couldn’t remember the company name. In the end I purchased an imported frame from Trade Me. I’ve already had to replace the slats and the spine (the beds, not mine). I thought “This is 2017, online shopping has to be easier than this!” And this is why Whai was born.

I want online shopping to be easier and give you more choice so you don’t have to settle like I did.

I want to make a gorgeous website that you love browsing and seeing everything in one place. a website that’s easy to use and one you come back to!

I want to help New Zealand businesses by giving them a platform where they can list there items in the same space as the big guys.

Whai is just getting started and I’d love for you to be part of that journey.

坚果换了新场地,不再是那个充满烟味和汗水的狭小空间。门口有储物柜,还有专门的售票处,不禁感叹现在的live house条件真的变好很多。站在门口你可以闻到无数次kenzo水之恋风之恋,大概现在kenzo已经变成重庆文艺青年的普遍气味审美。看了WHAI,今年的第一场演出,有一些瞬间思绪成功放空。时不时有青年找你谈论后摇古典,时不时有喝醉酒的人颠颠簸簸。#坚果俱乐部 #nuts #livehouse #concert #rock #whai #chongqing #winter #重庆
