Oom Samie Se Winkel, Stellenbosch

3.5
#5 of 13 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.

  • Very good service by helpfull, friendly and client oriented staff. Great product selection.
  • Great 'small' shop, the paths are narrow, but once you are inside the store is way bigger than it looks on the outside. Feels like you are going back in time to be inside.
  • Nice mixture of old and new. Very much a tourist gift Shoppe with relevant pricing.
  • Authentic. Lots to see and buy at touristic prices. Not much else to see or do in Dorpsstraat in Stellenbosch. So, quick stop and onto the vineyards :-)
  • Best little shop to 'snuffel' in! Lots of old stuff and many new! A historical must-see when you're in Stellenbosch.
