Flentertjies is one of those unique Afrikaans words that brings more than one concept together in a single word. Hard to translate while still preserving the precise meaning without losing any of the impact while trying. ‘Bits and Pieces’ is probably a good try, though ‘Flentertjies’ refers to ‘bits and pieces’ as well as ‘second-hand’ in one perfectly chosen word.
This fascinating and adeptly named shop is in a house close to the Fynbos Centre in Excelsior Street in Stilbaai-West. In fact, just around the corner from the Amana Estate Agency. The friendly owners, Harry and Henriette, invites you to visit their establishment soon. Stilbaai is a lovely and popular coastal town in the Hessequa area in the Garden Route, Western Cape.
