Iconic shops of Cape Town - Kismet Supply Store
It really is the best hardware shop in Cape Town! Kismet, on the corner of Batts Road and Park Street, Wynberg goes back to 1957 when it opened as a corner store by Mahood Mohamed Fakier who still runs things today. What is great about them is that they are always open it seems, and will sell in small quantities too - most of the big hardware shops only sell stuff in great, pre-packaged quantities. Kismet means luck or destiny in Arabic.
