Durban has a new spot to visit when you are looking for that perfect gift or ideal object to zoosh up a dull corner: Shoppe in Marriot Road. Owner Sonia Vosloo is one of the best things about the store – she is as friendly and helpful as she is stylish and knowledgeable about her products.
The shop itself is beautifully appointed and provides a dose of inspiration every time you pop in, which I will be doing regularly for a fix. Stocked with the creations of some of South Africa’s best designers, Shoppe finally gives Durban design aficionados a place to source products from all over the country. Durban deisgn is by no means ignored, though, and you will find many of your local favourites on the shelves here, too.
Shoppe is in the courtyard opposite Market in Marriot Road – you can’t miss the wonderful black and white striped walls and colours spilling out from the interior.
