When you stop and think about it, there's really very little in the average day that makes it stand out as memorable.
Here's an example: what was the highlight of your day three days ago? Unless the timing works out perfectly and you just got hitched, chances are it's not that easy to remember.
But that's the way it has to be. By definition if everything was epic, nothing would be epic.
Except for us. We're special. Because we bet you remember everything you've ever bought from us and if you don't, please feel free to refresh your memory with today's latest deals.

Picturesque Winelands by Tanya Farber
The Cape Winelands occupy a relatively small area of idyllic valleys nestled in-between rugged mountain ranges that divide the interior from the sea, creating microclimates ideal for the cultivation of vines. The heart of the South African wine industry centres on several charming, historic towns – Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl, and further afield, Hermanus, Tulbagh, Worcester and Robertson. It embraces more than 200 estates, most of which offer regular cellar tours and tastings and have excellent restaurants and delis that provide fine fare to complement their excellent wines.
Picturesque Winelands takes the reader on a visual journey through a charming stretch of landscape with its wine estates and their venerable Cape Dutch homesteads, renowned cellars and delightful eateries and picnic spots that are such a strong drawcard in the Western Cape. The book celebrates a tradition of wine-making that has been fundamental to the area for some 350 years.

Why not give it a try today?
Well, because we also have to pay for delivery. And that money needs to come from somewhere.
Shipping costs money and we don't want to go bankrupt.
We have debated the merits of offering free shipping at length but the reality is that – without some magic source of free cash – the only place that money can come from is from our customers.
That leaves us with two options: hide it in the price of the product, or show it. We decided to be transparent and show it. This lets us cut our prices to the bare minimum and show you the best possible savings.
If we had incorporated the shipping cost into the price of an item, you’d pay double whenever you order more than one item but, in reality, the cost of shipping doesn’t necessarily go up.
By the way: the actual shipping charge you pay is a best-effort approximation of what shipping is going to cost us. As a result, ordering a 3kg item to Sandton or Cape Town may work out cheaper than a 75g iPhone cover to Springbok. Don’t blame us; blame the vast expanse that is our beautiful South Africa.
We'd love to offer free shipping. But we can't, because that means turning our company into a loss-making enterprise.
We rarely hold stock. Our partners deliver exactly what we need, after a deal has run. That way we keep our costs down, prices low and everybody (including you) happy.
We're not like other online shops with a fixed catalogue and tons of stock. Instead, most of our products never come back to our website again. That’s how we want it, as it keeps us fresh and unpredictable (win #1).
So, after you (and lots of others) have placed your orders, we go to our suppliers and place a massive, single order. Our suppliers love this, as it keeps things simple and moving along smoothly. Happy suppliers equal low prices (win #2).
Since we don’t hold stock, we can work with a cheaper, medium-sized warehouse, instead of a mega-warehouse (win #3) and we’re saving lots on not needing any processes involved in handling and returning unsold stock, allowing us to offer better deals (win #4).
The practice of not holding stock is one of the core principles behind OneDayOnly’s success. That, and our sparkling personalities of course.
