As many of you may or may not know there is a new small business opening in Seals. " The coastal collective". Myself Ari Kraak and my fiancé Faye Zoetmulder have been working hard to get things together..
Here is a bit of info,
Faye and i met 8 years ago in seals and have shared the dream of one day owning a sustainable/ organic -Cafe/ boutique in this amazing town,
We both grew up in the Eastern Cape and have been part of the community for long now , her family have owned a house in seals for 10 years and my family have owned a house in seals for 25 years, we are about to make our dream a reality and would love you to be a part of our dream.
There are 3 shops situated behind liquid lines on 2 Suffolk lane, our MO is to support local, buy organic and recycle as much as we can. We aim to uplift the town, increase value and offer products and food that are of the highest standard.
Without revealing too much the shops will have/ do the following,
Cafe- Health juices/ smoothies/ wraps/ saarmies/ Buddha bowls and excellent coffee ( Livingston is a 10year senior barista thats joining us) Boutique- Clothing, plants, carpets, umbrellas, baby clothes/items, garden items, gifts etc etc etc Fisheries / deli - fresh fish (locally sourced) LOCAL CALAMARI only :) Muscles, prawns, crayfish...anything from the sea... As well as fish and chips, calamari and chips and rotisserie chicken and chips all freshly made on site..
We have been super busy trying to get ready and open before season, the day is fast approaching. We hope to be open next week and thought it was about time to start sharing some info.
We will have more info on our soft opening in the week, but we would really appreciate if you would spread the word, stop by and have a look or just a chat. We would love your feedback...
There is still alot to do to make it perfect but next week hopefully its a go..
We thought it would be amazing to have a beer with your fish and chips, or even a glass of champagne with your fresh oysters and have therefor applied for an ON CONSUMPTION liquor license... part of the application is to hold a meeting with the community to hear their thoughts and answer any questions.
This meeting will take place this Friday the 16th of October at " the coastal collective" 3pm, i invite you to all join. Please note there are strict COVID 19 protocols in place as there has been a recent spike in the 6312 district.. Wear your masks.
We will be answering questions with Mr ben Reider the town councillor, We would love all feedback, positive or negative .
Here are a few pics, like mentioned we not finished yet...
Thanks for your time, we hope to get your support, uplift seals and enjoy this beautiful piece of coast.
Ari and Faye Regards,
