Yesterday I was down in Kloof for a meeting and popped into the new shop, Adele Catherine, next door to Bellevue Cafe to have a squizz and ooooh, boy! was it a treat!
As soon as I walked in, I recognised some of my favourite SA brands and designer names splashed around the place, and my excitement levels got all wild while my bank balance started a losing battle with me in my head 😉
The store, in the old Fat Tuesday spot (at Bellevue Campus, 5 Bellevue Road) is a decor, gifting and clothing haven for SA design/maker talent and boasts products from the likes of artist Victoria Verbaan, clothing designers Amanda Laird Cherry, Jane Sews, Pengelly; jewellery designer Shauna Neill, creative brand Noush, natural soapmakers Rondavel, chalk paint specialists Pop Paint and SO MANY more amazing brands!
I couldn’t leave without walking away with a coveted Noush clonette doll, a Victoria Verbaan gift card which I want to frame and hang in my office, a pair of cool scissors to add to my collection and a delicious looking all-natural baby wash that I want to try out on number 3 when she arrives!
As I said on Insties yesterday, kind of glad I don’t live nearby otherwise this shop would be the end me 😉 Defs worth a visit if you are in the hood.
