The Mantis Trading Store recently opened its doors in Darling. We specialise in antiques, quilts, art and pottery. The shop is ideally situated in an old house next to the police station in 3 Station Street, Darling - within walking distance from Evita se Perron and the Main Road.
We sell antiques, such as furniture, porcelain, clothing, old tins, silver, costume jewellery, building materials, kitchenware, glassware and South African Pottery ware. Most of the quilts in the store are made by Owen Britz - many made out of African fabrics. We have got bed covers, small knee blanket-sizes as well as baby quilts and doggy-blanket quilts. The Mantis Trading Store is also a supplier of batting to the local quilters.
Most of the pottery ware in the shop is supplied by Pinch Pot Pottery Studio in Bloemfontein. Jo Ann Guess is the potter and the wide range includes wash basins, platters, mugs, dinner sets and tea-sets. The artists displaying in the store are amongst others: Alida Stewart, Luigi Preite and Jo Ann Guess.
