Blackbird Goods was created not only as a store, but as an idea, an ethos, a way of life. We wanted to share products built intentionally, built beautifully, and built to last, items to enjoy in the everyday moments, the mundane, and also the special times. You will find a home of hand picked, ethically sourced treasures found around Aotearoa and abroad.
Migrating back to Nathan's hometown of Heretaunga ( Hastings ) in the summer of 2014, in search of golden hills and a slower pace of life and hot on the heels of closing our vintage clothing and handmade jewellery store based on Karangahape Road, Tāmaki-makau-rau . Seeing space in the market, we swung open the doors in the twin city of Ahuriri ( Napier, - shop location currently closed ) in the Spring of 2015 and then opened their sister store in Heretaunga ( Hastings ) in the beginning of November 2020.

Blackbird Goods is the bricks & mortar and online store of interior stylist Gem Adams and Nathan Speeden ( Te Roroa, Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Whātua ) . If we aren't in store you'll most likely find us partaking of the delicious kai and beverage scene Te-matau-a-Māui has to offer, or wrangling our tamariki by the seaside.
