Where Secret Santa Shops...


It's that time of year...Boney M's Christmas Carols can be heard wherever you go, trees are up, the tinsels been placed and kiddies are putting their lists together for dear Ol' Santa Claus.

Moms are stressing about what to buy teachers, friends and fellow bloggers participating in fun things like Secret Santa's thanks to Tiny Toes...

Well moms, stress no more. Nonna in Parkhurst is a unique gift and decor shop with the MOST beautiful things, both old and new.

A lot of their ranges support local product initiatives with an emphasis on natural materials and high quality craftsmanship. The locally made products include stationery, frames, jewellery, candles and candle holders, baskets, scatter cushions, baby gifts, soaps and salts.

What sets Nonna apart is their amazing selection of beautiful OLD things and rare finds. Owner, Hildeke Macleod, personally sources the individual pieces and new stock arrives on a weekly basis. There are also collectables (stamps and books), crockery, cutlery, furniture, paintings, prints and much much more...

Moms lucky enough to live in Jo'burg, why not pop into Nonna at No.9, The Cobble Centre, 4th Avenue (cnr 12th) in Parkhurst. Tell Hildeke I sent you...

Hildeke has very kindly given me a Tamelia nappy bag to give away along with the most delicious pair of handmade felt baby shoes courtesy of Nonna.

To win just leave a comment here...happy Christmas shopping xxx
