For the perfect outing and the most incredible selection of hand-crafted gifts, ceramics, art, plants and so much more visit The Collective Hout Bay – Local Artisan Gift Emporium and The Café Collective.
The Collective – Hout Bay is a local artisan gift emporium and market complimented by a Pantry/Deli gift section that features over 200 local makers, creatives and artists, whose products are all made by hand and celebrate South Africa – from quality bespoke furniture and ceramics to a wide variety of carefully curated gifts.
With ample free parking available in front or at Mainstream Mall, shoppers can just pop over the small bridge over the running stream by The Roastery and find The Collective at the end in the Courtyard. Visitors can explore the bead, crystal and jewellery shops, and an Ice Cream shop around the corner.
Situated in one of the historical buildings in the area, the iconic Old Post Office, The Collective – Hout Bay offers the ideal outing, boasting something of everything, local artisan shopping, beading, ice cream, local eaterie, a teahouse and even a kid’s play area.
The indoor fireplace makes for a cozy space in which to browse the many home fragrances, wax candles, ceramic bowls, pinch pots, chili sauces, cushion covers, artisanal soaps, and bottle bags, olive oil, and other functional ware sold here.
The Café Collective, situated in the Precinct Courtyard, serves coffee, gourmet Montreal-style bagels, pastries, cakes, daily winter warmer specials and Harvest Table Salads are also available.
The Collective has also expanded to the Lust Bistro & Bakery at Vrede en Lust Wine Estate in the Franschhoek Wine Valley, offering beautiful art, ceramics and exceptional quality handmade gifts.
