It has been an interesting start into the New Year with our oldest son starting university and helping him settle in with registration and accommodation at Pretoria University. Our youngest started High School so the last few weeks have been about adjusting to new routines and schedules.
On the work front, we believe 2018 is brimming with opportunities and are looking forward to new avenues for promoting the business and tapping into new markets – both locally and overseas. April 2018 will also mark our 3rd year in business and we look forward to branding our merchandise and telling our story better through hangtags for each of our product ranges.
Meetings Africa 2018
We are very excited to have been selected to be part of the Sustainability Village at Meetings Africa 2018 and showcasing our products there. Meetings Africa is Africa’s premier business events trade show – aimed at business events tourism and showcasing associated service offerings and products. It is hosted by the South African National Convention Bureau (SANCB), a division of South African Tourism and the Event Greening Forum (EGF). The idea behind the Sustainability Village is to do away with traditional gifting for the hosted buyers and speakers and replace this with a gift voucher system which can be redeemed from SMME’s who produce locally manufactured goods.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, our range of handcrafted beaded jewellery, picnic and wire baskets make ideal gifts. For all your Valentine’s Day gifting requirements visit our online store.
It’s going to be an exciting year and we look forward to sharing the amazing journey with you!
Till next month,
Founder & Director
