Turksvy Trading, in Kriek street, houses a vast and varied display of all things collectible: pinball machines, tables and chairs, and especially kitchenalia ranging from melamine kitchen cupboards to everything that goes into them: porcelain teasets, dinner sets, tins of all shapes and sizes and designs, ornaments, and even some of the original Tupperware.
Those with artistic inclinations will delight in the Junk Room where railway paraphernalia, prams, postboxes and radiograms are just waiting to be transformed into something new or perhaps become the main focus in an art installation.
Should you feel overwhelmed by the never-ending array of weird and wonderful objects, you can step into the soothing garden, aptly called The Yard, overflowing with potted cacti, wrought-iron tables and gates, galvanized buckets, old signboards, wooden door frames and other building materials for your home.
Enamel lovers will want to head for the unique collection of antique enamel pots and pans, buckets and basins in pastel shades and striking blues.
At the end of your trip down Turksvy Lane, you will probably have seen more collectibles in one place than anywhere else in the country. Turksvy Trading in Rosendal is a must-see for those who want unique objects in their homes, or just want to take a nostalgic trip to the past, when ordinary household objects were made with love, care and attention to detail.
Open Saturdays and Sundays from 10h00 – 16h00, but contact Joyce on 073 242 1839 should you be interested in viewing it outside of these hours.
