COMPETITION TIME! 29 May 2015

Isn’t it crazy to think that Vamp has been open for SIX years this July? So much has happened since 2009, we’ve been constantly innovating, evolving and growing. After all this time we are finally ready to make one more big change: our logo and branding.

To do that, we called in our amazingly talented friends, Candice Je┼żek and Simon Berndt. Together, this duo has turned our beloved old branding into something simpler, slicker and a lot more 2015.

So, in celebration of their amazing work, we are hosting a competition for you to win a R1000 Vamp gift voucher for yourself and a R500 Vamp gift voucher for a friend. 

To enter, find our competition post showing our new logo on our Facebook or Instagram pages and comment telling us which friend you would like to share this shopping spree with and why. Sharing and re-posting will earn you another entry, just don't forget to tag us. Winners will be picked by a random draw and will be announced on Friday, June 10th on the relevant pages 

Good luck!























Ta-da!

When I first spotted this handsome pair of light pendants (only one shown, they are identical), I thought they were a 70’s re-interpretation of Gino Sarfatti’s original Sputnik light. On closer inspection I realised that they were much more modern and after a bit or research saw that they presently sell for approximately R4500 at various specialist lighting suppliers including the bulbs (PF48 Chandelier 12v - Astro 48-light + transformer)
They are extremely heavy, so would need a ceiling that could support their weight and would need to be professionally installed. Local delivery only due to weight and packaging constraints.
They have been checked and are in working order with light bulbs. Replacement light bulbs are readily available.
