Oom Samie Se Winkel, Stellenbosch

3.4
#5 of 18 in Shopping in Stellenbosch
Oom Samie Se Winkel represents one of the first trading posts in the area, owned by Oom Samie Volsteedt in 1907 and stocked with goods needed by the settlers of that time. As you enter, you'll breathe in the scent of tobacco and you peruse the aisles that include ostrich eggs and different shapes and colors of leather merchandise. Sample some old-fashioned sweets that were once enjoyed by families in a time gone by. After browsing, recharge your batteries on a bench on the veranda, just like the owner did more than a century ago.

  • Lots of old worn down ‘special’ stuff on display. You get lost in here! Bit dusty and smelly - not only due to the spices on sale...  more »

  • The old look and strong smell of bokoms when you walk in the door really adds an atmosphere of what this place is all about. A reminder of the sort of operation of an early 1600's dutch coopmanshuis or english trader and keeping alive the traditions that built the town. Lots of cool old stuff and very interesting antiques. Definatley worth a visit if you're in the area
  • Loads of interesting curiosities to browse. Just the smell of the bokoms was a bit much. Still very much worth a visit.
  • Old world Charm. But the sales people a bit to eager
  • This store is incredible. It has many rooms crammed with wonderful stuff. I noticed a selection of really old wines. There were some fascinating looking old lp records. Interesting items of clothing. Lots of canes of the spanking type for fans of 50 shades of grey stuff... a room full of dried fruit etc. A real general store feel.
  • Really great at taking you back in time. Some interesting buys if your looking for something old. But really overpriced.
