Tire of bumming around Long Street? Never.
Specific highlights on my recent shopping jaunt included Afraid of Mice with their super vintage and one South African designer selection. I can't wait to wear the jacket I bought — it'll make everything look fancy. At the ever-colourful Mali South I got some fabric to fulfil the longtime promise of a gift. The African Music Store also solved a gift problem rather neatly and I got myself a Mahotella Queens album — a bit of South African music legend that I had to go live in Japan to learn about. Clarke's Bookshop moved, but the good news is that it didn't move very far and that it's as awesome as always.
Oh and if all that shopping leaves you a bit hungry, check out the Eastern Food Bazaar for amazing value for money.
