Shopping in Capetown is a feast for the True Fashion lover! And especially if you like those African style influences in fashion. For sustainable design pieces, ranging from modest essential pieces to African inspired statement pieces go to Kloof street, for some cool vintage shopping Long street is amazing and to discover new designers and to hang out with the local creative crowd Woodstock is the place to go!

Just a short uber-ride from the city center you’ll find the more upcoming area Woodstock. Make sure to visit the Old Biscuit Mill but also the surrounding shops and the Cinta Foodmarket on Albert Road.
OLD BISCUIT MILL
The Old Biscuit Mill is in te heart of Woodstock and feels like a little village. Here you’ll meet some of South Africa’s most talented, innovative designers, artists, photographers, as well as connoisseurs of fine taste and decor. On Saturday mornings the Neighbourgoodsmarket is on, promoted as THE essential showcase of Cape Town’s finest micro-merchants, designer-makers, specialty-producers and food-alchemists. Sounds good hey?!

VINTAGE SHOPPING AT LONG STREET
Long street is great for Vintage shopping. We especially loved the shop Gracious Daisy with it’s super friendly and fun owners and great selection of vintage finds. There is a few really nice vintage shops gathered on this part of Long street.
