A trio of great offerings at:
Shells by the thousand, captain’s caps, beach gear, hand-made gifts and sea-art curios are on sale; plus whacky Republic of Hout Bay passports with a boatload of special offers.
Most items are themed to the Wharf’s harbourside ambience and are memorable keepsakes of a wonderful place.
Choose an oyster guaranteed to contain a beautiful pearl. Then, if you so wish, watch it placed into a setting of your choice from the extensive ranges on offer.
Alternatively, if pressed for time, ready-made bracelets, necklaces, earrings and fashion jewellery are conveniently displayed.
Its nautical artefacts and antiques, naval books and uniforms, maps and menus, shipping line postcards, paintings, brassware, scrimshaw, scripophily and shipwreck memorabilia are a collector’s dream, and an inspirational source for interior designers bedecking bars, studies and boardrooms.
With thousands of items in stock this is the largest shop of its kind in Southern Africa.
