Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair-1

Every year Hyde Park rooftop hosts the Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair and every year I go and stuff my belly with good food and spend my hard earned cash on some cool new things. This year was no different. Last night myself and Jo went to the opening of the fair and we were on a mission to try as many tasty artisan gins as we could handle (turns out I can only handle three hehe), eat something delicious and buy ourselves things that we don’t need but want. We succeeded on all fronts and had such a good time.

The Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair has over 120 of the country’s most talented maker of things and they’re all set up on a pretty rooftop setting that has been designed to a T. It’s all happening this weekend on the Hyde Park Corner Rooftop, so if you’re looking for something fun to do that will involve you eating and spoiling yourself a lot, then be sure to get a ticket. It’s running from the 9-11 October 2015. Happy weekend!

I have made a list of some of my favourite stalls that I definitely think you should check out if you go:

Lulu & Marula – Handmade skincare products that are amazing.

Benji + Moon – Beautifully designed pet products.

Dear Rae – Cape Town based jewellery designers who make such pretty things.

1701 Nougat – Your sweet tooth is going to high-5 you for this one. Trust me.

Simon and Mary – If you like hats and I’m talking awesome hats, then don’t skip this stall.

Hope On Hopkins Gin – Delicious gin that made me very happy.

Zana – They make all sorts of fun accessories and products that are full of fun crazy patterns.

Ceramic Factory – If you like ceramics, then this is your place they have all sorts of cool things that your house will love.

Father Coffee – Try out some of their new cold brew, it’s so good.

    Penny is so pretty–reminds me of my Penny that I had as a child. As for men listening, they don’t; my hubby doesn’t remember things I told him five minutes earlier. Sometimes I repeat myself, sometimes I don’t. I say “Just forget it,’ a lot, since he already has…then he tries to insist I should repeat it! If he didn’t hear it the first time, why is he interested now? Oh yeah, it’s that PO’ed look on my face, or the low growl, or…he’d like to eat today. MADDENING!
