A few weeks back I received a tip off about a new pop-up boutique opening in Bree St, selling all kinds of things from fashion, jewellery & accessories to ceramics, homeware & gifts. Being so close to xmas I figured this is something I definitely needed to check out to get some gifting ideas for friends & family (and maybe myself – nothing like a gift from me to me I always say. Hehe 😉 ).
The store is situated at 152 Bree St, on the cnr of Pepper St, and it’s quite easy to spot because it has these two hot pink chairs outside:
This cute summer pop-up is brought to you by Abi & Scarlett. These two ladies specialise in finding empty retail spaces around Cape Town and then transforming them into pretty little stores with a limited lifespan. So in a way, they’re supporting that whole “all good things must come to an end” theory… or even the “always leave them wanting more” one. Kinda dig that…
This pop-up is only going to be running for about 2 months through to the end of December. And they are promising new stock on a regular basis during that time. Currently in store they have some really cute summer dresses, lovely Kenyan leather sandals (R225), bikinis selling at only R250 each, gorgeous woven beach bags & sarongs and some really pretty jewellery. So basically, everything you’ll need to look great during the upcoming summer months.
From a decor perspecitve, they also have some really great things. I absolutely fell in love with these large Indian glass vases (R320 each), bowls & plates with quirkly hand drawn messages on them and also these really cool candels made from champers bottles daahlings:
So ja, lots of cool things to be discovered here. And the pricing in general I thought was very very good. You’ll definitely tick off quite a few xmas items in this store.
Their opening Hours are: Mon to Fri 10am – 6pm and Sat 9am – 1pm. And for more info you contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org or 073 290 8308 for Scarlett / 076 527 8717 Abi.
Happy shopping guys. 🙂
