The annual Christmas craft fair that has us waiting, cash in hand, is beating a path to Bloemfontein this year. Already showing in Cape Town and Jozi’s Irene, expect inspirational spaces offering only the coolest craft and decor from handpicked local suppliers. The Kamers team is renowned for their innovative sourcing of creative talent and fresh new product ideas. A platform for unique products that are not easily available in the market place, Kamers eschews the perfectly made and mass produced in favour of high end, authentic craft with all its imperfections.
