New HospiceWits shop opens in Norwood

Norwood is known for artsy crowd and fine dining in eclectic restaurants. Norwood, along with Linksfield Ridge, are known to be among the oldest suburbs in Johannesburg, with many of the homes in the area dating as far back as the 1920s and 1930s. Nestled between Houghton, Orange Grove and Highlands North, the suburb is a stone’s throw from bustling centres such as Rosebank, Parktown, Melville and Illovo.

Norwood was once known as “Little Italy” due to the high number of Italian immigrants that made it their home. The surrounding area once served as home to none other than Mahatma Gandhi, who lived in a modestly decorated home in Orchards, a suburb that is right on Norwood’s doorstep.

From 1 March 2024, Norwood, with its diverse community and Bohemian vibe, will have a new resident as HospiceWits opens a charity shop at 77 Grant Avenue, the main thoroughfare that takes visitors along one of the cultural hubs of Johannesburg.

The HospiceWits shop offers thrifters and treasure hunters the chance to find gems from books and second-hand furniture, to clothing, bric-a-brac and homeware. It’s the perfect place to go in search of retro and vintage fare as well as much needed household items at an affordable price. Pick among the fascinating items to find those one of a kind pre-loved items for your home, garden, or even wardrobe.

The HospiceWits shop in Norwood also accepts donations from the public. Books, clothing, appliances, furniture, glassware, toys and ornaments are gladly received to find a new home elsewhere. HospiceWits accepts all donations of second-hand items that are in a good condition. What is not sold in the shop is utilised by the facilities that serve the Johannesburg and Soweto areas of HospiceWits. All proceeds from sales ensure that the multi-disciplinary team of Doctors, Homecare Nurses and Counsellors can continue to provide compassionate support and quality care to all with a life-limiting, or life-threatening illness.
