Cape Town(0.2 km from De Waterkant)
Baraka Gifts and Decor is a world renowned Gift Shop situated in Cape Town's vibey Cape Quarter Piazza Mall in De Waterkant. We will take you on an inspiring journey to a dreamworld filled with an eclectic mix of arts, crafts, jewelry, decor and much more! We also sell vintage and antique items because we believe retro design is still very relevant today.
At Baraka you will find a range of handmade leather notebooks and photo albums, shell and driftwood spoons, affordable jewelry, out-of-the-box art, quirky once-off pieces, unusual non-curio African goods, Panama hats, handbags, hand-woven Zulu baskets made from recycled telephone wire – and the biggest selection of scarves in Cape Town, to mention but a few.
Our vision is to afford you an extraordinary shopping experience at very affordable prices. Baraka's loyal customers refer to the shop as a “treasure trove” and “the little shop with the big heart”. You have to experience it for yourself!

The Book Lounge is an independent bookshop in the Eastern Precinct of Cape Town City Centre. We opened in December 2007 and have had the most wonderful response. Talk to our experienced and passionate staff about the book you are looking for or feel free to grill us on what we've been reading recently. We pride ourselves on the many interesting book related events that we host – check out our events page for details of what’s coming up. Or just come and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee while relaxing in the Lounge area and perusing our eclectic selection of books.
Bring your children to the best kids section in town and if you know of a 3 to 8 year old who likes a good story, every Saturday morning at 11.00 is story time at the Book Lounge. We have a wide and unusual range of books, and if you're looking for something we don't have in the shop, we will do our utmost to get it for you. Enjoy the site and please drop us a mail if you have questions, queries about books or comments to share.
