ypsy Trading – supplier of all things gorgeous – finally found a permanent home in the quaint harbour village of Kalk Bay, Cape Town, after many years of roaming the country and its myriad markets and festivals.
Gypsy in Kalk Bay, the first of our stores, was established in 2002. Kalk Bay is always a pleasure to visit – whether it is long leisurely lunches, loads of retail therapy or just a quick coffee you're after. Gypsy is in the heart of the village and has captured the soul of Kalk Bay beautifully. Finish your ice cream on our bench, stop so your dog can drink from the bowl or COME IN – you're always welcome. Positioned close to the famed Kalk Bay Railway Station, Gypsy is ideally placed for a stop ‘n shop on one of the magical train rides running all along the stunning coastline.
Four years later, in 2006, Gypsy expanded to Stellenbosch. Situated in beautiful Dorp Street, surrounded by gorgeous old buildings steeped in history. Many deliciously decadent and lekker coffee shops all around, perfect to rest your weary shopping feet. From students to farmers-wives, tourists, locals, party peeps and even the odd farmer – we have them all passing through the door. The wonderful Ronel, who has run this shop from the start, is as much a part of this shop than anything. She has created a vibey space crammed to the brim with all our gorgeousness.
