Although primarily an American tradition, the attraction of Black Friday Sales seems to have caught the attention of the South African public in a big way and the number of shops now offering Black Friday specials has grown significantly.
What I love about factory shops is that in addition to offering excellent value for money they also offer year round savings. Now, with many factory shops offering extra discounts on Black Friday, the general public have been  afforded the chance of finding some magnificent bargains this year. Black Friday also offers shoppers a good opportunity to stock up with some early Christmas gifts.


(For ease of reference page numbers of where shop reviews appear in the 14th edition of The A-Z of Factory Shops in the Western Cape are given for each shop.)

Continental Crockery Warehouse

In need of new crockery? Setting up home? Starting an Airbnb™ or guest house? Looking for gifts for friends? Then Continental Crockery Warehouse in Blackheath (page 18) is definitely the place to visit as from Friday 23rd to 1 December 2018 they are offering a huge 50% discount on all crockery. This offer is only while stocks last.

Gift idea: Beautiful crockery bowls and bone china mugs make great gifts and an added touch would be to fill them with delicious goodies like chocolates. (See special from Chocolates by Tomes Factory Shop below – their shop is also in Blackheath).
