This is my most favourite secondhand shop in Hermanus! I first stumbled upon this little shop when I was on holiday in Hermanus, a year before we moved here. I've been going back to Matchbox regularly for the past two years now. The owner, Irma, has become quite a good friend of mine and I like to just drop in for tea but I always come home with something awesome! I just can't seem to help myself... Matchbox sells anything from records to vintage treasures and the goods are reasonably priced. I wish I had a truck-load of money to spend there, I would clean her out!
 I love how she displays everything! She even painted the walls and put up the wall paper herself, she is such a creative lady<3 &my camera shy friendy:)

 Oh, Irma found Mr. Bunny at an auction, he look to be quite old...even vintage. So she let Mr. Bunny visit me for a while so I can investigate how he was made (I've been working on some plushy OddOne's...shhhh!) 



  1. What an adorable looking shopping. I'd probably spend hours digging in there.

  2. Ich kann sehen, warum Sie dieses Geschäft so gut gefällt, Chane '!

  3. Hey Chane'
