I have heard about the Kamers/Makers event for a few years now but I have never been to one. Last year I saw Jenty’s pictures from when she attended and I was bummed that I hadn’t made a plan to attend, so when she asked me if I wanted to go with her and some friends to the Sandton event this past weekend I jumped at the chance… A morning shopping with friends sans kids and husband? I didn’t even think twice.
There is something to be said for shopping with a glass of Saltare champagne in hand, taste testing chocolate, toffee, wine, nougat in fact anything delicious. Within the first entrance corridor I had already had champers, wine and chilli toffee! After having had completed a 12km run that morning I figured I deserved a little bit of yummy stuff.
I really enjoyed browsing all the stalls and there was some really cool stuff on show that I had never seen before. I am definitely wanting to get a hanging garden. There was gorgeous jewellery and so many designer clothes. We had a long discussion about printed fabrics and dealing with Jozi traffic and while there were quite a few dresses I would have loved to buy, the printed fabric and the amount of time I spend in my car just didn’t add up.
I went with some friends who had been to other Kamers/Makers shows and they said that while this one was nice it wasn’t as good as the one in Irene. You can be sure that I will be heading to the Irene one as well – especially because I thought the Sandton one was divine!
If you are keen to go to the Irene one it is on from 28th November till the 04th December.
If I see you there ensure you have your credit card loaded with cash… I have a feeling that if it’s better than the Sandton one, I will be spending quite a lot of money for Christmas.
