Find the perfect gift this Sunday at the Antiques Fair

We all know that festive season means shopping malls full of Christmas cheer filled at the brim with oh-so delightful gifts and goodies. Yet somehow … shop after shop everything starts to look the same and shopping for your loved one can become quite confusing! Well … we have just the solution!

We know that you want something that’s great value for money, has meaning, and will be valued and cherished for its intrinsic workmanship and age, right?

That’s why the final Antiques Fair of the year at Nelson Mandela Square on Sunday December 1 (from 9am to 4pm) promises to be a bumper event with over 40 awesome dealers showcasing their best antiques and collectables.

The stalls are set to be packed with the most exquisite and diverse selection of treasures from beautiful silver and glassware … think porcelain … to exquisite jewellery, books and prints.


So why not focus on your loved one’s special interest, hobby or things they’re passionate about and buy an antique or collectable as the perfect gift!

We’re talking about things like vintage bags, a scarf for the fashion fundi, an antique camera for the retro-man or some exquisite lace for the romantic in the family.

With so many antiques and collectables you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Ideas … ideas …

There’s something for the guys:

Choose a silver hipflask, a Toby jug, a first edition book or a rare coin.  For the younger set how about a classic designer watch, a ‘20’s cocktail shaker and martini glasses or collectable corkscrew.

Something for the girls:

Pick a beautiful Moorcroft vase, a porcelain figurine, a beautiful silver tea set, an antique photo frame, an antique ring, some costume jewellery or a designer bag.

Keepers for kiddies too:

Get them a Beswick Disney figure of Goofy, Bunnykins, a Peter Rabbit Xmas Plate or a collectable dinky toy.

The holiday season truly is a time when family and friends get together to make precious memories, when the lunch or dinner tables are beautifully decorated for those delightful feasts. So take advantage of the Fair and purchase a few heirloom pieces … from a beautiful Royal Albert dinner set and silver candlesticks to Waterford crystal glasses and so much more!

See you there!
