• i managed to escape my deadlines for an hour on Friday to pop down the road to the first Blue Bird Garage Market here in Muizenberg. And i loved it. Kim and Dylan Speer have worked wonders with an old warehouse and it was transformed into a buzzing, happy market space with food vendors, clothing and crafter people and a lovely antique book stall where i bought an old lithograph of a bridge for The Captain.


    I chatted to Kim over the weekend and she was over the moon with the response – so many people came with their kids and to see friends and to hang out. I was so impressed with the market’s first run and i know that it’s going to go from strength to strength. It’s open every Friday from 3pm to 9pm and it’s situated in Albertyn Road just across from the railways booms.


    I’m toying with the idea of having a twice monthly little stall (in conversation with another blogger about it…will reveal all soon)…it might be nice to delve into a little market-ing.

    Happy day lovelies.

      Oh how lovely. So nice to hear about more markets opening up in the area. I’ve been away so missed this one. Will have to make a plannetjie to get there soon. Thanx for the info. I’m assuming it would have to be on the lake side of the booms?

      Gorge pic of mr Dillon and his lovely wife, Kim! We were there, it was a fab evening, but as usual we spent far too much mula & might have to limit ourselves to a monthly or bi-monthly visit … wine, curry, aromatherapy goodies … & those russian sausages in your pic went down a treat with Meghan, as did 2 of the milk tarts! Kids play area great too – such a treat to leave her for an hour while we wandered around. Good luck guys!
