Celebrating 6 months of trade!

Hello & Welcome!

We are beyond excited about this particular blog - we're officially 6 months old! Since opening our doors in December of 2017 we've had incredible support and want to say a big thank you to everyone who has visited us. Not only have we had loads of happy customers in store but our website has proved to be a very useful tool in helping customers abroad to order our products. 

6 months open

Since we stock such a wide variety of products we've decided to do a little top sellers list. We've analysed our reports and have chosen our top 3 groups of products since opening. Bearing in mind that loads of items are still brand new and others have completely sold out - we've put our list together using products currently in store. We hope that this inspires you to visit if you have not yet done so.

We also want to say a massive thank you to all of our wonderful suppliers. Without all of your beautifully made crafts we wouldn't be the store we are today! By doing our best to source and stock as many local products as possible, we can proudly call ourselves a truly South African store. The talent among our local peers is always mind blowing. Thank you for your top notch products!

Our top sellers since opening...

1. Bath Crystals, Oils & Soaps

Coming in at number one with no surprise at all is our collective range of bath and body products. We know how much our customers love the sweet smelling store which moves them to stock up on bath salts, oils and bath soaps. Our incense and candles are also amazing sellers and we can understand why! Our ranges are inexpensive and help make your beach home smell fab. These all make fantastic gifts as well.

2. Jewelry 

Everyone loves jewelry - there's no surprise that it comes in at number two. We have such an extensive range which includes, anklets, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and more. Our higher end products such as freshwater pearls and 925 sterling silver has also proved to be well loved by our customers.

3. Fridge Magnets & other Souvenirs

With fridge magnets being the most popular among our souvenir range, this category comes in at number three and that's no small feat! Buying small nick-nacks are easy to travel home with and are great, affordable gifts for friends. Whether you opt for a key ring, mug or wall plaque, you can take home something small from your visit to the coast.

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.
