When you shop at Oasis, you shop with conscience. Revamping your closet and home, while donating to a good cause.
It doesn’t matter which shop you choose: Claremont, Fish Hoek or Elsies River, the income from these charity shops is the lifeblood of our organisation, and enables us to do the work we do, while providing work opportunities for our intellectually disabled beneficiaries.
And please always remember that we welcome saleable quality donations of second-hand books, household goods, toys and games, décor items, small appliances/electronics (working), clothing, jewellery, shoes, small furniture, DVDs/CDs, art, etc.
1. Claremont Village of Shops
The Oasis Village of Shops in Claremont is one of Cape Town’s hidden gems.
The Oasis Association for Intellectual Disability has a little “village” of four shops at the corner of Lee and Imam Haron Road, Claremont.
This circuit of delight is home to all things pre-loved and vintage, from clothing and jewellery, to hats, second-hand furniture, books, vinyl records, accessories and more.
– Our second-hand clothing store
There’s nothing more satisfying than trawling through rails and boxes of clothes to come home with unique vintage pieces bought at a fraction of the original cost. Our second-hand clothing store is an Aladdin’s cave of pre-loved clothing ranging from hats, bags, scarves, and dresses to men’s and kiddies’ wear. Even some throwback memorabilia from the 80’s and 90’s to help you get your groove on.
– Bookshop, including an art gallery and furniture
Books, vinyl records, maps, textbooks, plays, antiques, prints – on subjects ranging from children’s literature and nursery rhymes to recipe books by Jamie Oliver and fiction for adults – you’ll find all this and more.
All the books and art are categorised and alphabetised – we know you won’t leave empty handed. And, our stock changes constantly, so be sure to pop in regularly.
– Oasis bric-a-brac shop
Our bric-a-brac shop has an abundance of pre-loved homeware – cutlery, crockery, vases, framed paintings, toys, puzzles and many other treasures. Stock changes daily, so pop in to see what we have instore.
While you are browsing you will more than likely catch the whiff of freshly baked breads, enticing you from the centre display. The bakery is integral to Oasis’ service and all the goods are made by our beneficiaries. Try our shortbread, brownies, muffins, swiss rolls and other baked goods, all available for sale or on pre-order – or sold to be enjoyed in the tea garden outside.
And our brand-new shopping area
– Lavender Shop
Lavender is the newest addition to the Oasis offering. Specialising in collectibles, editions of excellent quality used books and goods, treasured collectibles, art, and antiquities.
Then, once your bargain-hunting is done, sit down and treat yourself to cup of tea or a cappuccino and indulge in a decadent scone or one of our infamous creamy chicken toasted sandwiches!
