Who needs a mall when you can shop at a market?
This year’s Festive Ideas Market at the Simondium’s Country Lodge promises to be a star-studded event for festival goers. From Wednesday, 2 November, until Sunday, 6 November, this distinctive market is celebrating its uniqueness beneath the Southern Cross.
More than 100 exhibitors present original, innovative products, from designer clothing for all ages, fashion accessories, hand-made jewellery and a huge range of pampering products. ‘If you want to spruce up your house, kitchen or garden before the festive season, this market is the ideal place to pick up exceptional decor items such as imported linen, table ware for your festive table ranging from silver cutlery to crystal glasses and antique porcelain – as well as gorgeous Christmas decorations.’
‘The Festive Ideas deli is brimming over with the yummiest home-baked goodies to fill up your pantry before the holidays. Spoil your loved ones with mouth-watering biscuits, rusks, gourmet coffees, hand-made sweets, jams, relishes and canned treats as well as fresh farm produce and even speciality fruit cakes.
Enjoy the relaxed and festive atmosphere of the elegant old guesthouse and its lush gardens with soothing live music, delectable snacks and a glass of wine, while the kids can play in a specially dedicated kiddies area.’
The market is open from 09h00 till 17h00 from Wednesday to Saturday, but closes at 15h00 on Sunday. Free parking and security is available. Entrance is R30 per adult, but free for children under 18. Don’t miss the special preview on Tuesday, 1 November, from 14h00.
