Uniquely Different Romantiques
Every now and then you find a cute shop that’s just a little different from its competitors in the same field. Romantiques Bygones and Collectables is a gem and a must visit when meandering thru Hermanus
Romantiques is full of surprises by way of Africana books, old military equipment, uniforms, books, personal accessories, a big display of Coca Cola Memorabilia, Fine Porcelain, Crockery, Cutlery, and Enamelware, Farming equipment, Tools, Toys, model trains, garden implements and so much more.
What makes Romantiques different?
They have a collection of really old gramophone records which they play through the day, Kind of adds to the vibe of the place.
All the items in the store are grouped together so while you’re “just looking” for nothing in particular you’re much more likely to find it and
The real cherry on the cake is the “old movie house” where they show old South African and Hollywood films are screened in the Romantiques shop - They do this on Saturdays Only so you need to book for the movies which are around mid-day. I would highly recommend that you put this "Treasure Chest" of unique shopping on your "to visit list" when stay at Mountain View Manor
