About Holistic

Rob and I tried another new market this past weekend (new for us, at least): About Holistic at the Bothasig Town Hall was hosting a gypsy market/festival so it seemed a good time to introduce the Jam Tarts ‘range’ to a segment of the Cape Town population that I don’t often visit.  Turns out there’s a damn nice bunch of peeps out there!

Gary, who sells leather jewellery, in his hand-knitted “gypsy” tunic that he originally bought for his wife – but she refuses to wear it!

Me with Steve, the shiatsu massage guy, originally met at the Constantia Waldorf Market and without whom I wouldn’t have discovered Bothasig!

Carol in the new Ella hat – my most successful hat yet!

New customer Danelle in a black velvet newsboy. You have no idea how perfect this girl’s skin is!!!

New customer Bianca with her dreads tucked up into a green BonBon.

And that’s not all – another customer, Bonnita, who took two newsboys, said that she’s going to recommend to her daughter that she stocks my hats in her Hout Bay shop.  How exciting would that be?! Jam Tarts getting seriaaaaas…… :-)

Thanks to Nina Ganci, who runs this market and does a wonderful job of advertising it within the community, and everyone else who made this day so great. I’ve already booked for the next event on 14 June – and I hear that the theme is belly-dancing.  Perfect for me, I won’t even need lessons – my belly dances all by itself!

Back soon x
