Shopping Centre
“Inspired by similar developments like Box Park in London’s Shoreditch, 27 Boxes, a shipping container shopping development in Melville, has transformed a disused park into 80 boutique stores and restaurant and kiosk spaces geared towards starter entrepreneurs, from fashion designers to chefs, jewellers, artists, interior designers and baristas and bakers. The emphasis of many of the stores is on local design and local production and you will often find that the friendly face behind the counter is also the person who handmade the unique items that you are buying. A quirky alternative to Joburg's mega mall scene.”

Arts & Crafts Store
“The most established precinct on the edge of downtown Joburg, 44 Stanley is a mixed use development that fuses downtown urbanism with a subtle sophistication. A mix of carefully-curated, bespoke stores and independent restaurants gives the centre an authenticity that runs through eating, drinking, shopping, working and living experiences. Shady arcades and green courtyards between what was once a series of industrial 1930's buildings make this a unique Johannesburg space. Visit some of my favorite shops - Salvation cafe which always has fresh delicious organic food, Luna (fashion), Mungo (towels & throws), Bean There (coffee roastery), a chocolatier, bakery, jeweler, the Jozi shop (funky Johannesburg items) and loads of others. 5 mins drive from Greenside, unexpected & fun!”

“Yet another winner found for breakfast venue. Paputzi's is exactly what a suburban diner should be. It's a house...with lots and lots of rooms...that sell food and arts & craft stuff in front and feed you in the other rooms. ”
