As you can see we had a great time shopping. The stores are full of wonderful colored hand crafts as well as unique beaded and recycled items. We found these wonderful hooked purses at a women's coop and I had to buy these beaded owls for my sister Wendy.
I also bought some African fabrics to share with my friends back home. Bridget had a store near her that had a good supply of these geometric designs.
The bead work here is phenomenal. We visited Streetwire which is a coop where everything is made from beads and wire. This was a life size lions head.
In Cape Town we also came across this street art totally made using hand prints.
Monkey Biz was one of our favorite stores. Also a coop where they make unique beaded animals and wares. Everything from their little car was colorful.
We had to restrain ourselves as we were already over weight. We each bought a couple of mementos to take home and a few gifts for loved ones.
