Overstrand Hospice Shop

This little shop in Hermanus made me very happy. I don’t often get the chance to go to charity shops, but I spotted this one as we were about to leave Hermanus. It was such a joy to shop there. Everything was well organised and they had some gems! I managed to scoop up a pleated skirt for R10. I also bought and a tapestry set. Yes, I am into that kind of thing. I’m a programmer by day and crafter by night! How ridiculous does that sound!?

  1. Oh my gosh! I write for the Overstrand Hawston Hospice!! Well, I do freelance work for the company that does their fundraising. So special that you went there. Makes my heart sing! Looks so lovely inside x

    • Your comment made my heart sing :)

  2. Hey Ant,
    You know I really never knew you had a mass obsession with vintage treasures….It’s not my thing but, I can admire it and also Dames doesnt do flea market or second hand shops…..I love you pics as always…!

    • Thanks babe, yep I do have a mass obsession..lol! I’ve always been that way. I think it started as a child when my gran used to show me pics of herself as a young woman.

  3. Anthea-I love your photography here especially the one of those rods/canes. What are those? And I can’t wait to see the pleated skirt you got.

    • Hi Naina,
