We visited the shop. And my mom which are very sick phoned me. The assistant at the till, were very rude, because I spoke to my mom, that phoned me. So we walked out of the shop, without buying. Although we saw some items, that we wanted to buy.

Visited the Ugly Duckling with my wife during a weekend away in Clarens. Interesting little shop with a variety of mementos and trinkets. Worth having a relaxed browse around.

The Ugly Duckling is kind of overwhelming with a billion trinkets, not my cup of tea exactly but I cannot fault them and there were many ladies oeing and ahing so I presume it's all good. To me, it feels like being inside China Mall or Oriental Plaza in Jozi. To each man or woman there own :-)

This store stocks a large selection of knobs, leather goods and crafted items. The children in our party loved it! Ideal for something different. And knobs of course!

This has to be one of the most eclectic shops in Clarens and well worth a visit if you are looking for something different to take home with you. The mix includes furniture, knobs, some leather good last etc that you are unlikely to find elsewhere.

With so many shops offering so much in Clarens, the Ugly Duckling stands out. Lots of variety and certainly even just a window shop is fun.
