We went there as it has such good reviews. Very disappointed. It is really a curio shop with souvenirs and not worth the effort to get there and certainly not worth 5 stars

Very nice shop to get lost in books, ethnographical items and the history of Swakopmund/Namibia. We definitely need to go back to have a second look at all the different things.

Peters is such a mixture of things it is difficult to review. They range from classy silks to odd souvenires. Certainly worth a look if you are looking for that odd, different present. They had lots of things we did not see elsewhere.

Apart from some well kept antique items all sorts of authentic namibian items. If you are in midtown and have spare time you must drop in.

Peter's has a very Interesting and eclectic collection of African cultural artifacts and very reasonable prices. I really enjoyed browsing their collection and talking to the proprietor. I highly recomend a visit to Peter's antiques. They do have odd hours so call ahead.
