Gilroy is just one of the attractions in the Ngwenya Village.  There are stalls with interesting goodies, and things to keep the children amused. Bring the family and make a day of it...

"Shades of Ngwenya" where you can watch glass work - from melting in the furnace to glass blowing.  The shop has an extensive range of glass products.

Stroll next door into the delightful "Rosewood" - a jewel box of a shop!  Beautiful, indulgent, lavish, exquisite.  You will find a gift for someone dear in this quaint little shop.

The name says it all - "Spoil Yourself".  Delicious-looking, great smelling soaps, scrubs, milky bath powders.....ahhh. Heavenly.
Sandy keeps hand made, one of a kind clothing, a range of antique collectables and a sampling of persian carpets.
Down the pathway you are welcomed by Africotta where you can select your hand-made tiles.
For the children, Jocks Studio offers the opportunity to get creative.  Mom, relax - this mess is not yours to clean up!  Sand art and candle dipping are firm favourites.
