Bellbottoms Antique Store

Pierneef Street and 30th Street, Weaverly, Gauteng



Bellbottoms is one of Pretoria’s best kept secrets. This shop can keep everyone - from serious antique dealers and collectors to hippies, vintage clothing bargain hunters and vinyl lovers, busy for hours.

Situated on the corner of Pierneef Street and 30th Street in the leafy suburb of Weaverly, you could easily pass this store 100 times without giving it a second look. It’s situated next to a liquor store and corner shop and it looks like a junky furniture store from outside

The moment you walk in, however, you enter a world that seems to belong in the 1940’s, with everything from ancient medicine bottles (that you yourself probably won’t recognise unless you’re 60 plus), jukeboxes and wall-to-wall antiques.

What makes Bellbottoms a truly unique antique store is the atmosphere. If you’ve ever thought clothing stores are too cramped or full, you will be surprised at how well the two story Bellbottoms store pulls off a shop crammed to 150 percent with goods.

There are badges and flags hanging every square metre of the ceiling and every last piece of shelf space is occupied with antiques and collectables.
