LOOKING for something different for that special person, or a gift to take back overseas with you, or something good to eat? We've put together a selection of great Joburg shops where you're bound to have hours of quality shopping enjoyment. Joburg - shops - great - go!

 


 

KinderspielKinderspiel, Bamboo Centre, Rustenburg Road, Melville, 011 646 0870, Mondays to Sundays 8.30am-5pm
Go into this store for a fantasy experience. Owner Ruth Kellow specialises in unusual puppets, tiny musical boxes, farm and wild animals, and games. All toys are imported from Germany, and are exquisitely made. Kellow has been in the toy business for 15 years and she enjoys the “beauty in a wonderfully crafted idea”. She is very aware of the educational value of toys, and stocks construction sets, gliders, Lego, Playmobil, and Uberstix with this in mind. But the kids can also just enjoy the furniture sets for a doll’s house, or the range of knights, fairies and dragons. I loved the tunes coming out of the musical boxes – from Happy Birthday to My Way.


 

Mahlah’sMahlah’s, 160 Long Road, Greymont, 082 320 1712, Mondays to Thursdays 9am-5pm, Fridays and Saturdays 9am-3pm
There is something very pleasing about antique tools which are the speciality of this shop. You’ll see tables and shelves full of antique planes, blacksmiths’ anvils and tongs, saws, chisels, and many more handsome tools. Owner Tom Howden says he and his wife have been in business for about five years. “I have an affinity for tools, and started picking them up,” he says. He sources his tools from fairs, auctions, dealers around the country, or from people who walk in with their grandfather’s toolboxes. Some of his tools are 150 years old. The store’s other speciality is art deco lighting, hanging enticingly from the ceiling. And the rest of this cosy store is filled with an admirable collection of antique furniture. Go in, even if just to run your hand over those tools.
