We kicked the weekend off with a great outing - Kamers vol Geskenke 2014 - the biggest pop-up store in South Africa. And boy was it fun! And huge!
I was immediately drawn into every single stall we visited and was constantly told by my husband that I shouldn't touch everything. But if you don't touch, you can't see, right?
My favourite stall had to be the Valhalla Tees stall, where I bought Flip a Siener van Rensburg shirt. We were really impressed by this creative team, who gave a new spin to Afrikaans legends. I also want one of their t-shirts now, so will just order one online at the end of the month.
Other highlights included meeting Lea from Met Liefde, who I interviewed a little while ago for my blog, saying hi to Melissa from Zana and Mariaan from MStudio, meeting and greeting Matthew Mole and chilling out with Miss Tash from TandSerendipity.
We loved watching Matthew perform live in the big marquee tent, where he sung some sweet sweet songs. He also sang my wedding-aisle song, which got me all flustered and teary eyed.
Ooh, and don't even get me started on all the food and drinks. We had delicious little tasters at Nova Chocolate, had some refreshing spritzers from Kuhestan Organic Farms, and ogled all the delicious looking tapa platters and boerie rolls around us.
The most challenging thing about Kamers was trying not to buy all the products, which saw me walk out empty handed. I was so scared that I might buy something I like and then see something that I really like even more later on, but then not having enough moolah to buy that something. But, I did take all the business cards of my most favourite stalls and will be supporting those online stores soon enough.
