In our ‘Double Agents’ trend feature in the latest Elle DECO Trends Issue, we  profiled curator-owner Andrew Breitenberg of a Cape Town store called Selah.  Andres is both a shop owner and an artist. He sells (and makes / curates) a collection of exquisite old school stationery, frames beautiful things, and is also a muralist, writer, editor and advocate for social change.

You can read more about Andrew and his work on P32 of our current issue, now on shelf. But we thought we should update you on news from Selah – one of our favourite little shops in The Foundry.

Andrew recently returned from two month trip to the USA. The unpacking of all the new stock in the store has resulted in shelves heaving with pretties. From staple-less staplers to Swedish Sea Salt Soap it’s like Christmas all over again. The new additions to the space include beautifully patterned washi tape, wonderful new Field Notes, Mucu and Muji note books as well as an array of great coloured sharpies.

A couple of art works recently found new homes so Andrew spent his first few days back making these beautiful mini artworks.

Capetonians, check out Andrew’s latest chalk bombing in Woodstock on Williams Street.

In February, Selah will be welcoming a new visitor who will be helping out with some interesting projects they have lined up. We’ll be keeping an eye on that space.

In the meantime, Selah invites DECO blog readers to pop in for a cup of tea, pick up your much needed black muji pen, drop off a mix tape  or write your own contribution on Selah’s white board.
