I filled my suitcase with wonderful objects from this place. Even went back for more when I found another bit of room. Hand embroidered wall hangings are my favorite find, from the Kaross Collective, they are going to be a treasured gift for family. Fabrics, ceramics, jewelry, all reasonably priced. It's a one-stop place before you head home!

Lots of beautifully made traditional African crafts ranging from beadwork to woodwork to fabrics and basket work. Ideal spot to pick up some good pressies for home. Very good value and quality.

A small tucked away treasure filled with beautiful African art to buy or too admire. I spent a far bit of time browsing and deciding what to buy. You will not be disappointed.

Linda is the most increible person offering a host of crafters and opportunity to sell their wares. She helps with colours and design.

Didn't buy, bit hidden out of the public eye. Some good looking colourful pieces, I regret not asking about packaging and postage arrangements for those living out of country.

While Durban area is full with souvenir shops, this place is special. It has a nice collection of well-collected items. We got some nice items, very special and unique which we didn't see elsewhere, Price are really decent.

I love this shop. It has so many interesting curios and things that have been made so creatively. I don't buy curios much but I always find something interesting in this shop to buy. There is one in Umhlanga and one in Johannesburg and I love both of them.
