Raewyn Robinson first established her boutique store 'Ritzy Bits' in November 1992,then in the sleepy seaside village of Westmere,Auckland.
Dealing in the stylish Art Deco period,through to the cool kitsch period of the 50s' 60s' & 70s',now more commonly referred to as Retro.
In 2000,she decided to get in on the cyber world activity and had the first Ritzy Bits website designed.
In December 2003 she opened her second store,(4 times the size of  Westmere),in the more upmarket area on the corner of Great South Rd & Market Rd,Remuera,alongside 7 existing Antique/Collectible stores.The Antique area of Auckland.
The Westmere store was closed down 2 years later in January 2006 and focus was then totally on the Remuera store.
The recession hit in late 2007 and  over the next few years  saw the demise of alot of the Antique stores around Ritzy Bits,and in fact,around the country.
If there's one thing certain in this life it is Change & in December 2008,now over having a big store,Raewyn downsized her Remuera store & reverted back to a boutique store.At that stage there was only 3 stores left including herself,of the original 8 that were there when she first opened back in 2003.
Yet more change,in 2012 the number of Antique/Collectable/Retro stores was now two.The Antique area of Auckland was no longer the character area that Raewyn had shifted to back in 2003,the soul of the area had well and truely gone and the Market Rd corner shops was now just the same as any other shopping centre,made up of food & services.So in 2013 Ritzy Bits the Real Store closed its doors.
Now for the next stage of Ritzy Bits...more time & energy will go into the Cyber Space Store.Wow how life has changed!What will be next?
