    The Art House: Unique Art and Jewelry from South Africa

    by TRimer Written Jul 30, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After a disappointing stop in many of the shops on Main Street (the jewelry shop was selling silver made in Mexico), I stumbled across the Art House and was pleasantly surprised.

    What to buy: They carry a lovely collection of art, furniture, jewellery, home-ware, pottery, clothing, handbags and more, all crafted locally. I purchased a bronze necklace and one silver colored one that I wear all the time.

    What to pay: I think I paid $60 US for both necklaces.

    HomeWork: Unique Clothing Concept

    by TRimer Updated Jan 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While at dinner at the Grand Cafe, this lovely couple woman from Cape Town told us about this shop that her husband actually liked going to. The place- owned by the owner of the Hotel/restaurant- pampered husbands by supplying them with sports magazines and serving them coffee. She said her husband actually encouraged her to visit. She also raved about the uniqueness of the clothes - she was wearing a simple gray outfit. So we decided to check it out.

    What to buy: The designs were beautiful but I have to admit more for an older woman (in ones 50s or 60s). Sophisticated, comfortable and styles/pieces that mixed and matched. I tried on 2 beautiful silk voile kurta tops- one dark green with fuschia threads and sequins - another with browns and golds mixed in with blues. Unfortunately, although it was the smallest size they swam on me.

    What to pay: The clothes ranges from 600R to over 950R.

    Figo Leather Designs: Amazing Leather Goods

    by TRimer Written Jan 3, 2007

    I stumbled across this shop and factory which was across the street from our hotel. It was closed the evening we arrived but I went by the next morning and was so pleased by what I discovered. Here was a factory that made beautiful wallets, handbags and belts from exotic skins.

    What to buy: I purchased a lime green wallet with many slots for credit cards, and a separate pocket for change all with a zipper around the entire wallet and a soft hot pink wallet with many credit card slots - all made of beautiful ostrich - for a total of $165 US. Amazing. You cannot buy a nice leather wallet in the US for $100.

    The Southern Right Whales come into Plett to breed...Unfortunately the Whale Shop is no longer in the main street:( so I have to Edit.
    Old Nick's has a number of interesting shops and galleries...
    Global Village is great for African curious.

    In this store they sell a variety of items, from clothing to cards. Nice to just browse around, but quite pricey.

    You see it all over South Africa and neighbouring countries, but they still make a good gift to take home, or even a lovely souvenir. Very colourful indeed. Prices vary.
