When Shane and I went to The Midlands a couple of weeks ago we drove through Winterton where we came across an amazing antique shop called Sandra Lemmer. It’s located in an old house, which is packed to the rafters full of all sorts of vintage goods from all eras and it has been laid out so nicely. They have a section that looks just like an old general dealership and it has all sorts of vintage products on shelves, on the walls, in draws. I love how things were designed and considered back in the day, everything came in such beautiful packaging from hairnets to medication, wish we could go back to that.
This place has loads of very cool and collectable things, I mean it has the biggest collection of Trechnikoffs I’ve ever seen in one shop, but the lady who owns it clearly knows her stuff so you won’t be picking up any bargain bin goods, things are priced quite high (expected), but you might find something you fancy and can’t leave without.
So if you find yourself in Winterton in the Champagne Valley in Natal, you must stop and check out Sandra Lemmer’s Antiques. I wish I could give you an actual physical address, but her business card slash the internet isn’t helping me on this front. Here is her cell number if you’re in the area and can’t find it – 082 371 2137
