About Us
We are a New Zealand owned and operated Antique store, based in Pukekohe, Auckland. William and Lily started Elsie Wolfe for their love of antiques, all while helping to reduce not only their own, but also there customers foot print on this planet.

Starting to deal in antiques as teenagers, a gradual progression has occurred over the years, from Trade Me sellers of antiques and home decor, to market stall holders and selling at antique fairs, now its time to live a life long dream. That being, our own company sourcing what we love and bringing it to you. 

William completed his building apprenticeship at the age of 21, and successfully ran his own construction business for 8 years after that. During this time he learnt many transferable skills when it comes to restoring antiques all while developing a good eye for quality.

Since leaving school in 2012, Lily has had a variety of jobs in customer service and administration. All of which lead her down the path of her most recent background in recruitment. Lily loves meeting new people and listening to their life stories, she says it’s humbling to see so many people have a passion for preserving history by purchasing pre-loved items.

Its been an awesome ride so far and we can not wait to see what the future holds.

Natural Oils
Most of our wooden items have been sealed with a plant based oil which is durable and hardwearing, highly water and stain resistant, food safe and resistant to coffee and wine.
This oil contains natural plant oils and waxes (sunflower oil, soya oil, thistle oil, carnauba wax and candelilla wax), paraffin, siccatives (drying agents) and water-repellent additives. Dearomatized white spirit (benzene-free).
We use this product as we feel it is important to encourage healthy, non toxic living.
