Owner description: Baraka Gifts and Decor will take you on an inspiring journey to a dreamworld filled with an eclectic mix of arts, crafts, jewellery, decor and much more! We also sell vintage and antique items because we believe retro design is still very relevant today. At Baraka you will find a range of handmade leather notebooks and photo albums, hand crochet hats, shell and driftwood spoons, affordable jewellery, out-of-the-box art, quirky once-off pieces, unusual non-curio African goods, Panama hats, handbags, hand-woven Zulu baskets made from recycled telephone wire – and the biggest selection of scarves in Cape Town, to mention but a few. Our vision is to afford you an extraordinary shopping experience at very affordable prices. Baraka's loyal customers refer to the shop as a “treasure trove” and “the little shop with the big heart”. But you have to experience it for yourself!

If you are looking for something to serve as a reminder of your South African trip, but without the predictability most of the souvenirs outlet offer, this is the place to go.
An eclectic array of South African crafts and art, Baraka has something for everyone. The shop may be small in size, but big in heart, with each corner packed with something to titillate the senses. Each time you take a stroll around the shop, you will discover something new, whether it be a piece of unique, handcrafted jewellery or a tongue-and-a-cheek take on South African culture.
I would highly recommend this as a stop for locals and international tourists alike.
And if good, friendly service is what you after, don't look any further.

We have been going to Cape Town once a year for the past 6 years for vacation. We discovered Baraka in the Cape Quarter Piazza several years ago and liked it so much that we have made it a compulsory stop for shopping. The owner has filled it with an eclectic array of African jewelry, toys, clothing, antiques, paintings, bags, and home decorations. Every time we visit there is something new to see. My grandniece bought jewelry and scarves there for her friends and I bought a small sculpture - something that I had not seen in any other store or market. The prices very reasonable and the owner is friendly and relaxed. It is a special place and we will be back again next year!

The shop ain't big, but my goodness, a feast for the eyes it is for sure! They have a big table in the middle of the shop that gives a natural flow around it, but every time you go around it you find something else you want to buy.
One of my prize possessions I discovered in this amazing shop is a beautiful wooden cross- LOVE IT!!
