festival neighbours

Our immediate neighbours in Tent 4 :

Nico and Neville with bulbinella and beeswax bodycare and medicinal products. They gave me a sample of the royal jelly and swear I woke up feeling 10 years younger the morning after using it. Gave me quite a buzz…,

Nadine from Dragon Gems. Her sister Dorina and son Darren are also here, they’d just gone for coffee when I had a chance to take this pic. We call them The Crystal Girls, and it’s fabulous being next to them – their stall is a massive magnet.

Ben with his Potjiekings. He makes them all himself and they sell like hot cakes to the braai- and camping-crazy South Africans. Rob bought one last year, and Ben is wearing one of my beanies.

Thandeka with a vast range of handmade items. I have my eye on the leather bangles and shweshwe bags. Of course I do.

You’re not a serious teenage girl if you can pass the clothes and accessories at Chirpy Chix without getting sucked in.  Managed this year by brother and sister Andre and Sonette while their parents have a break and enjoy the winter sunshine, they are always busy!

And Rasta, who sells handmade ceramic graters (for garlic, nutmeg, etc) hand over fist, in a Jam Tarts beanie just perfect for him – mad stripes and two fat pompoms. Big enough for him to tuck back all his dreads :-)

Grahamstown is rocking :-)

    It looks like you have a lot of cool and creative people around you. By the way, if that stuff works so good for you; I probably need some of it. :) And as for the Chirpy Chix booth, you would probably have to pull me out of there as well. Thanks for sharing! Love Tamara
