Blue Gum has opened some exciting retail stores on the Estate, including Bina’s Book shop, BLOCK Shop and Pre-Loved Treasures
BLOCK Shop started as an online Toy retailer focusing mainly on LEGO, Duplo, LEGO related accessories, books and games as well as PRELOVED 2nd hand and Rare LEGO. When Blue Gum reopened we established a brick and Mortor Space to house the Mountains of LEGO.

At BINA’S BOOK Shop you will find both preloved and new books. The physical shelves are stocked with fiction, non-fiction, coffee table books, children’s books and many more. We even have some Mills and Boon, for the romantics. In the meantime check out the digital shelves: https://www.blockshop.co.za/collections/binas-book-shop
The Pre-Loved treasures section will have you browsing for hours – beautiful brand new jewellery and clothes occupy the shelves next to artisan soap products, antiques and preloved kids clothing in mint condition.
Books are wonderful… but used books hold a special attraction. Knowing the story within the pages has been read and enjoyed by another (or a few others) and has somehow made a circuitous journey to get to you is quite incredible.

Most of us grew up with LEGO – It is certainly one of the largest brands in the world and is instantly recognisable to children and parents alike. Fans range in age from 1 – 99 (apparently after that you aren’t aloud to play with LEGO anymore). The BLOCK Shop has big plans, including opening a LEGO cafe where kids can happily play and build whilst the adults relax and enjoy a coffee.

If you’ve ever heard someone say they’re going to go thrifting, you might be wondering what they mean. Simply put, thrifting means to go shopping somewhere where you’ll find gently used items at discounted prices. Pre-Loved Treasures is exactly this.
