One of my most favourite shops to visit in Johannesburg and one of the most dangerous, in terms of spending more money than you should, is In Good Company – Parkhurst. If any of you have frequented this treasure trove of amazingness you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. This shop is like Pinterest in real life.
In Good Company is full to the brim with the most awesomely curated goodies, from baking accessories, to tea sets, to the best themed party decorations, to giant balloons, to toys, to gadgets and the list goes on and on and on. I wish I could put into words exactly how this place makes me feel. If I owned it I think my house would be a sure-fire candidate for the TV program Hoarders, except that it would be the most beautiful mess anyone has ever seen!
I always go into this shop with the intention of buying one specific thing and I always walk out with no less than 3 or more (way more) other items. It’s literally like a glorious candy store for grown-ups.
So if you haven’t been to In Good Company, do yourself a favour and pop in, but just make sure that you set a limit on your credit card or take a responsible adult with you. Good luck.
