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. The name ‘GONK’ is a combination of our initials – Gehardt Oosthuisen and Kosie Nagel (inverted).
It is our love of beautiful things, the love of shopping and of cause, the love for each other that ties it all together. It has been a life long dream of ours to have a little shop; a place where we can share what we love with others.
