Stellenbosch is a beautiful area and this wee little store there is well worth checking out between your wine tastings and vineyard tours. We popped in to Oom Samie's for some sweets, some dried fruit rolls and droewors. It's a super cute little shop with...More

Based on the concept of an old-fashioned general dealer in a small South African town, it is deliberately crowded and chaotic. Not very exciting and rather over-priced for locals, but a very good place for foreigners with limited time to get interesting souvenirs.

Going back in time, this place never changed since ages ago. You can easily spend an hour or more to check out all they have and sell.

Just a shop yes but so quickly and old fashioned you never know what you will find round the next corner. It’s a great place to explore and see what you can find of interest.

What an amazing shop. It takes you down memory lane with some of the goodies available to buy. A huge assortment of old and new things to buy, as well as old trusted remedies, sweets and collectables
