Most of you know that i live in the Deep South and Kalk Bay is close to my ‘hood but for some reason i just couldn’t get it together to get to the Kalk Bay Co-Op but boy am i glad i finally did!
This new concept for Kalk Bay celebrates local talents – and in such a big way.
There are two sides to the Co-Op – both are on the Main Road and each store (100 Main Road, where Cape to Cairo used to be and on Kalk Bay Station) features a range of talents – from established to emerging fashion (mens and women), ceramics, homeware, art, jewellery, shoes, vintage collectables and so many other fascinating finds.
What i love most about the Co-Op is that each designer has their own small space and each has curated it according to their brand. A lot of effort has gone into each and every space and the effect is that a ten minute browse is likely to last an hour.
I walked out with the prettiest polka dot top from Season and i couldn’t help drooling over the Sobeit candles. I also spotted a shirt for The Captain at Blue Collar White Collar that i know he’d love. So much to see!
You’ll find the Kalk Bay Co Op on the Main Road in Kalk Bay 100 Main Road and in the Station Building at Kalk Bay train station (tel 071 978 3704)
