One Year of Trade

We turn one today!

Yippee! We have officially been open for an entire year today. The store has gained so much more momentum than we thought possible and we’re really grateful for all of the continued support both online and in store.

We have received so many wonderful compliments from loads of customers and we could not be more proud of what the store is today. Our customers who have ordered through our website have also all been incredibly patient and pleased with their goodies they received - another thank you!


one year of trade

When we did our “6 months of trade” blog post we mentioned some of the products that had been top sellers for us in store. Since our readers really enjoyed this feature we thought we’d elaborate and let everyone know what our top 3 sellers have been after our first year of trade.

And here they are…

1. Bath Crystals

Coming in at number one with no surprise at all are our bath salts. We know how much our customers love the sweet smelling store which moves them to stock up on bath salts, oils and bath soaps. These all make fantastic gifts as well.

2. Darling Sweet Toffee Bars

Yum! These awesome little toffee bars are fantastic to add to your gift or to treat yourself to something delicious. We are massive fans of Darling Sweet and their toffee products. We also stock their range of boxes, soft caramels and toffee sauces in store.

3. Square Cushion Covers

We love our cushion covers just as much as you do! There are so many great pairing options to choose from plus the scenes of South Africa and surrounds make for truly lovely local home decor additions. Shout out to Cathy Joubert and her amazing photography!

Overall we are very pleased to say that everything in store has been well received by the locals and holiday makers. Our wide range of home decor which includes things like frames, scatter cushions, decorative ornaments and vases are all great sellers. Let's not leave out our yummy selection of homemade confectionery goodies. We stock all kinds of delights such as nougat, chocolate, fudge, jams, hot sauces, toffees and more. Some days these products are by far the top sellers! You can see all of our categories in store here. 

Again just another HUGE thank you for your continued support in store but also online and on our social media profiles. Make sure to follow us on Instagram and like our Facebook page  if you haven't yet done so. 

Thank you for reading and thank you for your support! Here's to loads more gift shopping at The Fat Whale!

Much Love,
