Each year during the last week of October more than seventy small business owners ‘set up shop’ in the beautiful gardens of Glenshiel to highlight their carefully chosen products.
Stall holders travel from as far afield as Cape Town, Plett and the Natal Midlands, to offer Jozi residents some of the most stylish and ‘on-trend’ products only seen on the pages of local style and fashion magazines. Luxury offerings include beautifully crafted bags, shoes and belts, clothing and scarves, gorgeous linens and jewellery, bespoke stationery and ceramics as well as handcrafted Christmas decorations, cakes, cookies and crackers.
The Glenshiel Christmas Fair is not your ‘everyday market’ and it’s not just about shopping. There is an enormous ‘feel good’ factor in attending the Glenshiel Christmas Fair. Profits raised from the hosting of the event are used by the Order of St John in South Africa (NPO 000-814) to further its community health care projects and partnerships.
