Johannesburg always fascinates me with its variety of shops and centres. One of my favourite places is 44 Stanley Avenue – a retreat from the normal to find beautiful different and unique shops. Vendange is such a shop – it is a French inspired shop filled with beautiful products. They stock food, wine and olive oil as well as many other decor items. It is also home to the Boutique Vineyards Trudeau cheese and baguette board range as well as carefully sourced glassware, ceramics, olive oil, Champagne buckets, wooden wine crates, kitchen tables and other products that are useful for entertaining and add style and beauty to any entertaining area.
My favourite item were the wooden boxes that had “Cutlery”, “Herbs” and “Wine” on them. This is not their only store – they have many stores in South Africa. 1 at the Bryanston Centre, 1 in Design Quarter, 1 in Bedford Centre, 1 in Cape Town and 1 in Bloemfontein and 1 in Pretoria.
