Gonk is not a shop, it’s an experience.

It is our love of beautiful things, the love of shopping and of cause, the love for each other that ties it all together.

We aim to entice your senses with inspirational decor & gifting items that is unique and responsibly sourced.  We love supporting local.  We keep things fresh and there is always something new to find at Gonk.  Don’t take our word for it, drop in and experience it.

Gonk (noun):  [(G)erhardt (O)osthuizen & (N)agel (Kosie)]

About

The name Gonk is a combination of my (Gerhardt) and Kosie’s initials and is symbolic of our personal commitment.  What you see in the store you will also find in our home.

We will never stock anything at GONK that we wouldn’t put in our home.  Our brand is an integral part of us; its what we are all about

In 2015, after we assisted a friend in Clarens, to merchandise her store, we realized it was time to make our dreams a reality and GONK, the shop, was born. The time was right to take the big leap and leave the corporate world behind. After months of searching we found the perfect spot in the heart of Linden. We felt right at home and were welcomed with open arms.
In September 2016 we increased our footprint and opened the doors of our boutique gift store in the lobby of the prestigious  Fairmont Zimbali Hotel, in Ballito, KwaZulu Natal.

Gonk is a must visit for all your gifting needs and for unexpected decor; inspired by our travels and our South African roots.

Questions?

Do you sell online?

Gonk does not have an online store.  We believe Gonk is an experience; from the garden outside the store, the lingering fragrance, the friendly hello when you enter, the handwritten receipt and the way we gift wrap.  Unfortunately none of this can be experienced online.

Where do you get your stock from?

85% of our merchandise is locally sourced.  We love supporting local and we build lasting relationships with our suppliers to bring you Gonk exclusive ranges, offering you the best in local craftsmanship.

From time to time we also import ranges to complement our local offering.  We do however make sure that all imported products are responsibly sourced and made from sustainable materials.

Our stock offering constantly changes and depends on our finds, our travels and what inspires us at that time.

How do I become a stockist at Gonk

To become a potential stockist of Gonk – please email clear photographs, information and cost details of your products to info@gonk.co.za.  We will get back to you as soon as possible.

We plan our ranges well in advance, so even if we love your stock, we might not be able to stock it straight away
