There is plenty on the go in Durban this weekend, much of which I have already blogged about! This is just a little reminder so that you don’t miss out.
1. Visit the i ♥ market

The i ♥ market is on at the DLI Hall, in the middle of Greyville Racecourse from 8:30 to 13:00. There are loads of exciting goodies on offer and it is highly recommended for early Christmas shopping. Don’t miss:

Lisa and Jo’s fabulous stationery

Moxie Made jewellery (see

The Thrift Collection will be there too. Pipa and Meg are two inoovative young ladies who collect unwanted items of clothing and homeware, in good condition and then sell it at the market or on their blog. A really great way to recycle clothes and find a bargain. For more information see( More on The Thrift Collection on durbandiva next week.

Lucky You Handmade headbands (look out for the gorgeous brooches, too)

ikhaya will also be there with their unusual items – look out for their notebooks which have blank paper bound inside gorgeous old book covers, wooden bos frames and beads to match any outfit. I blogged about ikhaya here:

Terry Angelos, a talented local artist, is one of my favourite stall holders. Her drawings and paintings have a distinctly South African flavour and whether it’s a large painting or a greeting card you will find something to take home.

I do believe that is enough to whet your appetite for tomorrow’s market – see you there!

2. Go and see Diesel Vanilla

At DHS’s Seabrooke’s Theatre. For more info see Wednesday’s blog post

3. Visit the Christmas Fairs

Tomorrow at Highbury School and tomorrow and Sunday at Green with Envy in Vause Road. For more information see the page entitled “Don’t Miss”

4. Watch the rugby at Hops ‘n Barley at the Riverside Hotel

The Hops is always packed and pumping especially during international rugby matches. If you absoluely must keep your man company while he shouts for the Springboks, you may as well do it where there’s an atmosphere. Book a table at 031 – 573 1657.

4. Go and see Goldfish live at the Botanic Gardens on Sunday

They’re on at 2pm but gates open at 12. Click here for more info.

So, you’ve no excuse for a boring weekend if you’re in my city! Hope to see some of you around.
