Vendange - "Late Harvest"

My series about 44 Stanley (read more here and here and here) will not be complete without telling you about Vendange, a retail store that performs the nifty trick of taking you from old industrial Milpark (albeit seriously transformed) back to the Franchhoek winelands – well, to some of the finest it has to export!

Vendage, which means “late harvest” in French, stocks a range of décor items, wine accessories, kitchen tables and a beautiful collection of products from Sagaform. They also keep the very popular handcrafted Trudeuau cheese and baguette board range made from recycled wine barrels. These items are actually manufactured by the owners of the shop. I can attest first hand to how beautiful these are – they have been extremely popular in my shop (Tapenade Olive Shop in the Cresta Shopping Centre) for a number of years now.

Good news for the Freestaters is that they have just opened a second shop at the Preller Square in Bloemfontein. 

On my desk at home I keep a lavender wand (watch out for a post on these coming soon), and this one small item is enough to transport me right into the heart of the beautiful valley it came from. If you do get the chance to visit this shop, maybe you’ll find something that will carry you off to somewhere special.
