Baraka Gifts and Decor will take you on an inspiring journey to a dreamworld filled with an eclectic mix of arts, crafts, jewellery, decor and much more! We also sell vintage and antique items because we believe retro design is still very relevant today. At Baraka you will find a range of handmade leather notebooks and photo albums, hand crochet hats, shell and driftwood spoons, affordable jewellery, out-of-the-box art, quirky once-off pieces, unusual non-curio African goods, Panama hats, handbags, hand-woven Zulu baskets made from recycled telephone wire – and the biggest selection of scarves in Cape Town, to mention but a few. Our vision is to afford you an extraordinary shopping experience at very affordable prices. Baraka's loyal customers refer to the shop as a “treasure trove” and “the little shop with the big heart”. But you have to experience it for yourself!

We went to a lot of gift stores in Cape Town and this was the best in our view. Great, thoughtful selection of leather goods, crafts, carvings, and other items of curiosity. Very good quality. Generally very tasteful. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Offers tax rebate receipts. Nice location in trendy shopping area. Bought many gifts.

This shop is a one of a kind. Shopped already a couple of times and I am always happy. You get treated always very special and you leave the shop with a big smile. Great variety. Definitely shopping soon again for friend's birthday presents.

Nice little shop where you can buy souvenirs of your visit in South-Africa for everyone's budget. The owner of the show makes the shopping experience complete by giving additional information about the local artists.
