Last night was the launch night of this year’s Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair, that means that from today the doors are open to the public and of course your credit cards! This year’s fair was by far the best fair I’ve attended so far and I think it’s because this year Craig and I are decorating our apartment, so for the first time I’m actually able to buy some of the beautiful goods.

Speaking of food I had a delicious dairy free pie from the Braeside Butchery stall and I highly recommend stuffing your face with one.

I got a host of goodies at The Ceramic Factory, which I think were really well prices, some amazing tin cups from The Frontier Goods Company, (I just loved the branding), and a hat from Simon & Mary! There aren’t any pictures of the hat yet because I want to do a really awesome shoot with it first.
