The Fleet Shop


Realising the need for a temporary retail space to showcase their products during the holiday season, designers Kirstin Weixelbaumer (Black Betty), Jade Hoets (Paper Tiger) and Marcus Viljoen (Got Processed) joined efforts to open Fleet, a temporary store in Cape Town’s city centre. The Fleet is conveniently located in Buitengracht Street and stocks products from a limited group of both established and emerging local designers, called ‘Fleetsters’, making it a great one-stop shop for all your designer needs. The ‘Fleetsters’ include designers Lauren Fowler, Lalesso, Bow Peep, Got Processed, Black Betty, The Feat Sock Co., Didzy Designs, Ballo Shades, Touchee Feelee, Postcard Happiness, The Garden Canvas, Paper Tiger, Stockton Goods, Professional Wireworks and Lady Macaron. The store stocks a variety of jewellery, clothing and decor accessories. The pop-up shop opened on 21 October 2013 and is located at 142 Buitengracht Street, Cape Town. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am until 4pm and on Saturdays from 10am until 2pm. For more information, visit thefleetshop.wix.com/thefleet or their Facebook page.
