As much as I love shopping, sometimes it’s such a schlep to have to trek through a huge mall looking for what I don’t know I’m looking for. I know I need “something”, but it’s more of a ‘I’ll know it when I see it’ sort of purchase, with no clear goal in mind. If I went to a mall, this task would take forever because it would entail walking into and out of tons of stores and annoying myself at not just the prices but also because a particular size I need is not available. Enter one of my favourite online stores to shop at: Superbalist!
Not only is the store 100% South African, but it’s like the best of Urban Outfitters in one gorgeous online store. Their product offering is not just stylish, but speaks to the hipster, stylish, geek in me. It has everything from chic, trendy clothing, bags, accessories and shoes, to cute stationery, apartment goodies like lampshades, furniture, wall art and my favourite, it has geeky things like Star Wars memorabilia, earphones, radios, speakers and a whole lot more. Seriously, it has everything I love in one convenient store.
Shopping on the site is a dream with everything running smoothly and at a glance you can see if the size you want is in stock. I’ve bought shoes and sneakers from them that fit perfectly so their sizes are pretty much true to traditional sizing. My latest purchase was a bucket list purchase. I’ve always wanted an old turntable style music player with old school LPs. I got the pink Crosley model and splurged on two albums, Amy Winehouse and Sam Smith. And oh my god was I excited when the box arrived. Everything was beautifully and carefully packed into a large Superbalist box with bubble material to protect the goodies. I say “splurged” but I actually used some of my Ebucks towards my purchase so it cost me a lot less. Massive savings and something worthwhile to do with my Ebucks.
Overall, Superbalist is a brilliant online shopping site that I simply cannot recommend highly enough.
