A case of ‘Carpe Diem’ turned into an awesome day meeting new people and new opportunities this is what life is about right 😀
Yew Street in Salt River is the perfect spot for an intimate market where you can mingle easily starting up conversations and has the potential to grow into something big…these people have Moerse Planne but they also have the energy that goes with it to turn this market into the place to be on a Saturday morning.
Walking through the market I saw the words Live, Love, Laugh definitely a motto to live by :-D..chatted to a guy selling homemade craft ginger beer, a fusion of ginger,lemon and apple a refreshing drink for any season. Woodcrafted Clocks, handmade jewelery, paintings, clothing and the big five made out of wire these are all the things you’ll find…and more…
‘Jay lyk nogal lekke viddag‘ – ‘ Empty jou mind van almal jou kak gedagtes’ – yeah I know you are laughing right hahaha that was what I was doing when I read these on T-shirts made by Anwar a multi talented guy with big dreams and through talking to him has the social skills to make it big 0746289173 give the bra a call to check out some of his work. He works out of his garage in Ottery where he welds garden chairs and tables…he recently ventured into T-Shirts.
‘Black and White TV’s worked fine but going coloured made them special’ 😀 hahaha eending vat ek vir die bra moet sé ‘IS JY JAS’ om sukke cool goed op t-shirts te sit brother you are gona go far :-D.
If you get hungry there are cupcakes and coffee you’ll even score a massage too.
Solid Lotion Bars made out of beeswax leaving ur hands silky smooth…I tried it felt and smelt like honey – the crazy beautiful duo of Stacey and Arlene are passionate about their new venture drop by speak to them and purchase something different :-)….you might find a random pop up band at their stand too – a harmonica and guitar goes together quite well I must say.
Chris Wait a photographer, painter and owner of a cool burger joint, homemade, the place has an awesome vintage feel to it with vinyls records on the floor his paintings and photographs on the walls – while waiting for your food you can enjoy a game if dominoes and cards how awesome is that 🙂
This is a family friendly market where you can relax, chll and unwind enjoying the amazing atmosphere and friendly people – this is why I love Cape Town..saturdays just got a little better
