The Constantia Gift Fair

Yesterday I popped into The Constantia Gift Fair currently being held at SARDA on Brommersvlei Road in Constantia. Fortunatley I timed it well so it wasn’t too busy and I could enjoy browsing and photographing. I didn’t have much time to do any buying so I’m hoping to get back there over the weekend – tonight it’s open until 8pm and carries on until Sunday the 11th.

The retail tent was full of amazing gifts and I’m pretty sure I could do most of my Christmas shopping here if I just got my head around who I need to buy for and what my budget is! Eeeek. I spotted an amazing array of home and garden accessories, stunning stationery, fab fashion items and gorgeous gifts.

The food and drink tent is a great spot to grab some lunch, do some wine tasting or look for a food related gift. There are plenty of tables outside to enjoy a coffee or artisan beer and if the weather this weekend is anything like it was yesterday then this will be a great family outing. There is also a kiddies entertainment area to pop by.

If you haven’t yet started your Christmas shopping like myself then this would be an excellent place to start – rather here than in the crowded malls on the 24th I say! Also it’s worth remembering that there are only 3 weeks until the end of term so if you have kids at school you better get cracking on those teachers presents now! Good luck and have fun.

    Oo, I love this time of year in Cape Town! And this market looks great. It reminds me of all the craft markets we used to browse through when I was a child. And it makes me more than a little envious.. since I am too many miles away right now :(

    hi, how do we tell them that fans or airconditioning in the tent are a must? and that the seating in the food tent/ shade outside are inadequate?
