The Shoestring Collective Pop-Up Shop

Some of you may not have heard by now that myself and my friend Leila Badsha, of Bow Peep, are opening up a pop-up shop called The Shoestring Collective in The Gardens Centre, Cape Town.

The shop is essentially stocked, paid for, and run by 16 top designers who have all curated their own spaces within the shop. We all make different products including fashion, accessories, homeware and many more. We may have no budget (hence the name), but we have alot of super awesome products to sell! Everything is local and handmade by us.

There will also be a collection of products from other local designers which has been specially curated by Leila and myself. And we even have locally made wrapping paper so we can gift wrap your purchases! Have a look below for our full line-up of available brands!

The shop will run for a month, and we open this Monday the 8th!!! Please spread the word and more importantly pop in and see us. You can also follow us and keep up to date on facebook and twitter!
