Whatnot & China Town review 1 Users say 5/5 Rate it

This mecca of the mismatched and miscellaneous is where shabby chic comes to die. Tread warily around shelves and tables and, yes, whatnots, of Anglophile household China and ornamental pieces to find the missing sugar bowl from Granny's set. Do not, however, anticipate bargains.

Unbelievable service as well as postal delivery to your door at the most reasonable prices - what a find!

Buyers be VERY aware in this shop. I recently bought a duvet cover and pillow cases there, which I opened up and examined as best as I could - not easy in a shop where you cannot stretch an arm out without knocking something over. When I got home I discovered a very bad stain on the duvet cover which had been carefully hidden in the very inside fold. There was no indication of this obviously known flaw anywhere on the goods. When I took it back Mrs Sanders refused to even speak to me and I was told they NEVER give refunds, even on damaged goods. To me this is mark of an underhand business run by a totally unscrupulous woman - and she is abominably rude, as the previous reviewer found. The WhatNot shop needs to be avoided by every honest, decent minded person. There are many more delightful shops in Kalk Bay run on honest business principles, but The What Not shop is not one of them.

We were truly astounded by Mrs Sander's rude and ignorant behaviour when we visited her shop this afternoon. The friend accompanying me on an otherwise delightful visit to Kalk Bay inadvertantly touched an item on display, not noticing that it was part of a collection marked as "sold". Mrs Sanders called out angrily and sharply enough to attract my attention and no doubt the attention of others. The final outcome of the ensuing altercation was that we left the shop - preceded by another prospective shopper who did an about turn. I might be tempted to overlook this as an isolated incident had I not had previous experience of this lady's unfortunate attitude during a visit to the garden she caretakes over the road.
