Did you know that Madame Zingara has opened a “one stop party shop” in Kloof St!? The shop is labelled “This is not a post office”… think that’s a strange name for a shop? Well yeah, maybe… but you see the building actually used to be a post office and for fun they kept the old post boxes as part of the building facade. BUT trust me, it is a totally different story on the inside…
The best way to describe the feeling when you enter the shop is like you are Alice popping her head into Wonderland…
You can really find absolutely ANYTHING here, like this ring that lights up and changes colour!
And a BIG eraser for BIG mistakes…
My life was finally complete when I found cupcake shaped everything & pink elephants with wings!
Oooh, and I’ve always wanted one of those Scream masks to creep people out:
The shop is plit into various different rooms with different themes. This is the main room as you enter the store – I’m calling it the Candy Wonderland room:
Then you pass through a little door to get to the Disco room – filled with different wigs, fun glasses and other head gear:
Then you walk on these Baker’s Strawberry Whirl shaped cookie steps to get to the Fairy room:
Then finally, my personal favourite, the Dirrrrty Room (no under 18s allowed):
We seemed to spend a lot more time in this section of the store! haha. Hmmm, maybe it was that comfy heart shaped chair?
I found some interesting “evening wear” options…
And this actually appears to be a donkey style penis sock! Like every guy totally needs one of these, right?
I couldn’t resist snapping up a pair of cute thigh high stockings – I have a socks & stocking addiction. You should see my impressive collection at home.
I was also really intrigued by these “duckies” – they sure as hell don’t resemble the ones I played with in the bath when I was only 5 years old! You’ll be happy to know though that they are totally waterproof.
Lastly I just had to also snap a shot of the opening to this “Chamber o’ dirrrrtiness” - so fun:
This shop truly has something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for cool party decorations and outfits or just something random and fun to give as a gift or to gift to yourself, this is the place to go.
