I love beautiful things. I can browse markets and quaint little shops for hours, finding little treasures along the way. But I hate to go shopping for the sake of shopping or because I need to find something. You know, when you have to buy a present for someone and the only option is to head for to the mall. And then you end up overspending on a mediocre gift. But I have recently embraced the wonder of online shopping, and I am so happy to see more and more wonderful online shops in South Africa. Online shops like Heart and Home. They have beautiful goodies and you don’t even have to drive anywhere to get your hands on them.
Owners of online shop Heart and Home,Vanessa and Kathryn, share the same love for unique and charming products. Mother of two, Vanessa, was working as a finance manager and wanted to be a little more creative and work more flexible hours. Kathryn will be welcoming her first child in September and the online gift shop gives them a fulfilling career and enough time to spend with their children. Heart and Home offers local products as well as products sourced from abroad. They really wanted to offer homeware that aren’t readily available in South Africa. “We especially love the local, handmade babushka dolls, owls and tepee tents which you can find in our handmade section. But we also love products from the UK and Scandinavia.”
But the best part is that it all comes at a reasonable price. Heart and Home offers a very good courier rate for Cape Town and Johannesburg customers and make use of the South African Post Office. So delivery costs are very reasonable. International shoppers are also welcome, as Heart and Home can ship to anywhere in the world. To make the whole process even more convenient, they offer a complimentary gift wrapping service.
Each gift is wrapped in a red and white polka dot gift wrap with red Petersham ribbon. Their customised “Special Wishes” gift tag is attached with your personal message. Heart and Home is running a promotion until the 31st of July 2012. You will receive 15% off your initial purchase once you sign up for the Heart and Home online newsletter. And today they are also giving away a R350 Heart and Home gift voucher.
