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!
