It shouts out history.. I love old buildings and interesting buildings.. In London you can walk for hours and admire great buildings. But look at this elegant extraordinary breathtaking building. I stopped and stared .. I'm sure in a previous life I was an Architect!!! Go look for yourself...
Although I don't often visit Merchants on Long, when I do, I am instantly inspired by what I see. Merchants on Long is like a portal into London, New York and Kenya, all at once. The space is incredibly beautiful, all the clothing, jewelry and decor is curated, considered and totally aspirational, kind of like a living gallery or someone's...
A wonderful oasis on busy, exciting and authentic Long Street. Merchants on Long has an array of products sure to delight and is definitely a spot to add on to anyone's list of shopping destinations in Cape Town.
The goods and service = WORLD CLASS. First for South Africa. The location is a must go destination (Long Street) and the restored building, Merchants, is a historical masterpiece with a touch of modern.
Amazing little treasure chest of thoughtfully curated African wonders. I don't think you'll find a collection like this anywhere else in the world. Great just for a coffee too; very welcoming atmosphere!
I have been to Merchant's several times and never left without having bought a favorite piece! Be it a blazer in a colorful African silk fabric or an Okapi ostrich purse made by African artisans. Fun and timeless at the same time.
