our roots

in the beginning

The original Garden of O D D store was opened in Kloof Street, Cape Town in 1992, by Joni Foster. It was a little store that sold art, collectables and oddities from around the world.

While the little seed had grown into a jungle, the beauty of the seed is you can plant it else where to grow again…and again.

In 2014, the Garden of ODD was revived as an online artists showcase.

Joni realised that for a garden to truly flourish, it needs not only seeds, but soil, light and water.

I am delighted to announce that – from my roots – I am growing a new Garden. One filled with Original, Daring and Delightful ideas, art, plants, and flowers.
