So by now you all know that I love supporting local and one of my favourite shops to go into to browse is the divine Vendange! They have a store close to me at Design Quarter which I adore and always walk out with a few more things!
Their range includes basketware, glassware, ceramics, food accessories, furniture and décor and gifting lines.
They also have a great online store so you need not even leave the house to shop! Their product range is just great – all the things you need for your own home as well as making for excellent gifts! Vendange has partnered with Pay Just Now so you can also pay for your purchases in 3 #interestfree installments and get your goods straight away.
So I decided to share my top 20 items from the Vendange website with you, as Christmas is coming up and I know we all really want to support local more than ever this year.
The even more exciting news is that from 1 December to midnight on 6 December, there is a discount code! The discount code is VENDANGEXMAS and it is all in capital letters. It gives online buyers 15% off any purchase when they enter it at checkout. There is also free shipping for orders over R500.
