Established in 1996 to fill a gap in Smithfield’s cultural life, Biba’s Art on N6 has played a significant role ever since in the town’s life.

Today an established landmark in the town, the gallery has been important in encouraging the emergence of local artists as well as introducing the work of well-known artists from other parts of South Africa. All art forms have been featured in the many exhibitions over the years. They have included paintings in oils, water-colours, as well as charcoal and sculpture.

Welcome to Excentrix Vintage Collectibles, owner run and managed. Our shop was previously known as Rustic Relics which was in Smithfield’s main street, we have since downscaled and now operate from smaller premises. Our shop is small but quaint and quirky – no expensive, high end antiques here but rather a eclectic collection of items to suit most people’s tastes and pocket.

The Studio @ Nick’s Place is the home of Smithfield merino wool products. Raw wool is hand spun on the premises and transformed into beautiful soft furnishings and clothes.

We also exhibit locally made quilts.

Market Square

 

 

A wooden structure almost hidden in the corner of a large, empty stand is another reminder of an era gone by.
