Christmas at Treasury Market – Win a R400 voucher!

I’m a huge fan of shopping at markets and love nothing more than a few leisurely hours strolling among the stalls and browsing the beautiful goodies! Now add to that a Christmas theme and I’m a goner! I LOVE a good Christmas market and when living in the UK even took day trips to Europe to visit their fantastic Christmas markets! Lille, France was a favourite!

Well you’ll be pleased to know you don’t have to travel to Europe for a good Christmas market! These days markets take place in every corner of the country each weekend… And now in the run up to Christmas a few of our old favourites are holding special Christmas themed markets! Hooray!

The popular Treasury Market in Stellenbosch is one such place – this little boutique market showcases locally made products and runs alongside the hugely popular Stellenbosch Slowfood Market hosted at the Oude Libertas in Stellenbosch. It was born out of a passion for high quality, affordable, handmade goods and as a platform for the amazing designer-makers out there. Treasury Market will be hosting a Christmas market on the 1st and 15th of December . I can’t wait to pay them a visit – what a great way to spend a day with the family while also finishing off my Christmas Shopping….

The Christmas Markets on Dec 1 and Dec 15 will have an incredible line-up of goodies on sale including fashion by local designers; a tempting selection of silver jewelery, as well as a more contemporary perspex, wood and leather jewelery; bags and accesories; handprinted tableware; locally handmade perfume according to 16th century French tradition; vintage upcycled furniture; artworks and cards printed on a letterpress machine.

For kids and babies: there will be the cutest knitted animal beanies; a great variety of kids clothing; the coolest soft toys; superhero costumes; artworks, mobiles and nursery/ childrens room decor. There will even be a pop-up photo studio provided by a photographer who takes the most beautiful arty pics of kids with vintage props – the perfect gift for Grandparents! All these items are lovingly crafted and sold by the designer-makers themselves, NOTHING made in China, India or Thailand here!

The market this Saturday (1 December) will also be the Treasury Market’s first birthday so will be the perfect time to plan your first visit if you have not yet popped by – who knows what treasure you may discover at the Treasury Market!

Here are a few more details…

Dates: Every first Saturday of the month; Time: 9am – 2pm; Xmas markets 1 and 15 Dec

  1. Hi There,

    I have liked both pages 🙂

    If I won the R400 I would get those Joy, Family, Peace wooden signs for my lounge – been wanting to get those for ages!

  2. Entered! Not sure if it will be on sale but what I can see from the above pictures I really likes those little triangle flags. Otherwise those wooden signs are lovely too! Sharing via twitter too @RoechiStew

  3. Liked both! I’m really loving the wooden words, perfect to put up on my bedroom wall 🙂

  4. Hi 🙂 I have liked both pages and would love to get some lovely decorative gifts for my mom for Christmas – she’s been looking for nice decorative pieces for ages 🙂

  7. I have liked both pages 🙂 I I won I would buy some cute things for my daughter’s room or some clothes for her! Holding thumbs!!

  8. I liked both. What I am really hoping to find are locally made navity scenes. I can find them anywhere. Something wooden or with a chic African feel would be awesome, I hoped to find them at the Constania gift fair but no luck. I look forward to seeing this market!

  9. I’m a fan of Becoming you already and now I’m a fan of Treasury Market too 😉

    I would spend the R400 voucher on my 4-year-old daughter, asbolutely! The tunic dresses from SoJo children’s lifestyle is absolutely adorable!!! My little Leilah would look so cute in one of them 😉

    I would use these to buy special Christmas presents for my nearest and dearest.

  11. something sweet a definite treat , something to wear when its hot out there and something for the home to look at when I’m alone! A bit of everything from my R400 voucher !

  12. I L-O-V-E the Treasury Market! Awesome competition! 🙂 I would buy some things for our house – we are fairly recently married and will soon be buying our own (and first!) house. What better way to spoil ourselves over the holidays than to spend it on each other.

  13. I Like both pages 🙂 I’d love to win this to buy some “local is lekker” Christmas presents for my family (and maybe a little something for myself as well!).

  14. Both pages have been liked! I would definitely look for a unique and special Christmas gift for my mom and I may even have to spoil myself – I love the upcycled wooden picture frames – it would be great to add to my collection!

  15. I already liked both pages 🙂

    This year for Christmas I will be gifting only locally produced, handmade gifts – I am planning on making the majority of them myself, but am completely in love with the hearts from Hartedief and the amaaazing vases from Sonja Moore, and one of those pieces for my incredible Super-gran would just be the cherry on top!

  16. I’ve liked both FB pages 🙂 I have a handful of really special girlfriends that I would love to get a little treat for. The Treasury market would be perfect!

  17. Both pages liked. I’ll be on the hunt for something for my in-laws. Otherwise, stocking fillers for the kids and maybe a treat for myself.

  18. I have liked both pages and I would love to buy something from Duke&Dutch or I would buy those beautiful hearts with the wings above!

  19. Hi,

    I’ll be visiting The Treasury Market for the first time this weekend. A good friend, Tessa from a.scribe, told us we MUST go as it’s one of her favourites!

    So, I’ve Liked both pages and looking forward to purchasing lots of small, unique gifts to send back to family in the UK for Christmas.


  20. Hi there! I have liked both pages and will definitely be buying something from SoJo if I win. Beautiful clothes, locally made and supporting local communities.

  21. I already like both pages 🙂

    I would head straight to bokke & blomme & buy some words for our new flat, as well as a wedding present for a dear friend getting married in December

  22. Have liked both. I would buy some Christmas presents for the family (I havent even started my Christmas shopping yet!)

  23. Like both… If I won, I would jump for joy!! Then I would rush to the market and probably want to buy everything I set my eyes on… 😉

  24. I’ve liked both. Great prize. I would be on the lookout for pretty summer dresses for my toddler, and she could buy some jewellery for me 😉

  25. Hi!

    I liked both pages on Facebook.

    I am looking for the best Christmas present for my sister this year. She’s returning from a year in Amsterdam. Missed her so much!

    Holding thumbs for the prize.

  26. Oooooh! This may just be your best competition yet! I LOVE the treasury market, and got many gifties from it last year. I have to admit though, if I were lucky enough to win, I would use the voucher to buy myself on the the hartlief hearts – I have been coveting one for aaaaaaages now. I spied the new designs in one of your picture collages, and have a serious case of the wantsies! 😉 I, of course, already like Becoming you on Facebook, and have liked the Treasury Market. Thanks!

  27. I’ve liked both pages & if I were to win the voucher I would buy my mom-in-law little trinckets of love, hope, joy, faith or little frames as she just loves things like that!

  28. Liked both pages but finding it very difficult to choose which of all the lovely things to buy. It will be a close contest between Cosykids bean bag chairs, a Big Heart Company daschund bag, a.scribe chalkboard paints and Paper-tales paper flowers.

  29. i have liked both pages. I would go mad at a market like this! I love this market and would usually get all kinds of little bits for the home, for my daughter, for christams gifts for the family and of course… me!!! But cannot decide now would have to spend time there and look…

  30. LIKED! Ah, the market looks incredible! Im going to come through for a spot of Christmas shopping! If I won I’d probably spend it all on the wooden words … and their gorgeous wooden pastel Africa hangings. Great Christmas pressies!

  31. Hi,
    I’ve liked both pages, and I would look for something from Su Wolf and Big Heart Company or CosyKids for my 2 boys. Looks like lovely stuff!!

  32. I have “liked” both pages. I want to say I would buy jewelry, my jewelry is falling apart… but knowing me I would probably buy something for my 2 sons and hubby.

  33. I have liked both pages. Money is extremely tight, so the prize money would come in handy for buying a gift for my dad and step-mom. A photo of their grandson sounds like a fabulous idea, but I may also consider a creative decor piece.
