The Fringe Arts

UPDATE: This shop has been renamed as KIN, you can view their new website here.

Another great shop in Cape Town that is perfect for gift buying and is full of gorgeous goodies is The Fringe Arts in Kloof Street. The shop is refreshingly ‘un-Christmassy’ for this time of year, I find some shops are just too over the top and bombed out with gaudy, glitzy Christmas decor. Sometimes less really is more, don’t you agree? The only Christmas feature they have is a beautiful branch decorated with jewellery and ceramic decorations that acts as a lovely natural and simple ‘Christmas tree’. The shop windows currently feature beautiful hand sawn brass koi fish by Anna of Smith Jewellery. Anna has also created some Japanese inspired necklaces and cuffs which are available at shop too, so definitely make a note to pop in.

    I find myself looking for un-Christmassy shops these days. There are so many over the top, really. They have the reverse effect on me and kill the holiday spirit. This is just one more lovely find of yours. Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Lana!
