Eloqynt and beautiful words by Donna Ashworth

Why do we start a new year, with promises to improve?
Who began this tradition of never-ending pressure?
I say, the end of a year, should be filled with congratulation, for all we survived.
And I say a new year should start with promises to be kinder to ourselves, to understand better just how much we bear, as humans on this exhausting treadmill of life.

And if we are to promise more, let’s pledge to rest, before our bodies force us.
Let’s pledge to stop, and drink in life as it happens.
Let’s pledge to strip away a layer of perfection to reveal the flawed and wondrous humanity we truly are inside.

Why start another year, gifted to us on this earth, with demands on our already over-strained humanity.
When we could be learning to accept, that we were always supposed to be imperfect.
And that is where the beauty lives, actually.
And if we can only find that beauty, we would also find peace.

I wish you peace in 2023.
Everything else is all just a part of it.
Let it be so.

Donna Ashworth

With all the celebrations and Christmas drawing near, we'd like to wish you a lovely time with your family and friends. Savour those precious moments, and make beautiful memories.
It's a very different Christmas for us without Günter. We miss him dearly and will always carry him in our hearts.
Thank you for your unwavering support, all the chats, hugs, love and care you have shown us this year. Every moment was so very much appreciated ❤️‍🩹
Enjoy all the goodies bought both in-store and online.
Warm wishes from Claudia, Michael, Celeste and Fatima.

Wednesday 14 December: Open 8am - 4pm.
We've had to adjust our Festive Trading Hours according to Loadshedding and the weather, even though we have an inverter. When there are 4,5 hour sessions, we unfortunately have to close halfway, as our inverter only lasts 2 hours.
But watch this space😉 We are going SOLAR this week, thanks to Adriaan Heyns from Evolve Africa Energy.

Not only do we have to deal with 4,5 hours of loadshedding tomorrow morning (Friday) from 8am to 12.30pm, but we also have to deal with extremely high temperature at the same time🌞
Because our Inverter keeps our Lights and Aircon going for only 2.5 hours, we have decided to only open at 10.30am.
We have loads of Chocolates and Biscuits that need to be kept cool🫣
Let's hope we get much needed rain real soon🙏

We’ve put together an awesome collection of gifts 🎁 that the kids will love!

01/11/2022

In our 17 years of trading, we have NEVER experienced such chaos at our harbours with the containers. Due to the 2 week TRANSNET Strike which ended last week, it has set us back by at least a month😭 Usually ALL our Christmas Lebkuchen, Stollen and Chocolates are here by now, but unfortunately there are massive delays at our harbours, and we are not receiving information of backlogged containers.

GOOD news though, a range of Lebkuchen and our ever so popular Gingerbread House Kits will be in store on Thursday afternoon, 3 November. They sell out faster than we can unpack them, so please pop in soon if you would like one this year.
Our Stollen will hopefully be in-store by mid/end of November.

31/10/2022

No Stollen yet. They still floating somewhere on the ocean 🥴
but guess what's arriving by the end of this week? 🤗

When you visit The German Shop Knysna in the next few days, and you see our Christmas Deco and the first of many varieties of Christmas biscuits, please be kind about them being unpacked already 🫣

Firstly it's only 11,5 weeks to Christmas.
Secondly I am very thankful that containers are arriving from Europe.
I had to place our Christmas orders in the same week that I lost my husband / business partner Günter in April. I nearly sent back empty order lists because at the time I couldn't even think about the next day, never mind what to order for Christmas. But I managed to get the orders in on time with the help of my amazing son Michael, who is my new right hand for now.
Unpacking Christmas stock has been extremely difficult without Günter, because everything we unpack reminds us that we will never spend Christmas with him again. It ALWAYS was a very special time for our family ♥️
Somehow we will get through this, and in the meantime myself and my team, extend a warm welcome to visit us.

Remember, our Christmas deco is limited. Orders from Germany are closed for 2022.

When lovely customers like Kedibone Mafifi take time to call us to thank us for their online order and post a review, we gleam with pride. So happy she got her coffee fix 🥰
