Kamers is ‘South Africa’s pop-up treasure trove of handcrafted creativity’. The Autumn market is currently being held this long weekend at St John’s College in Johannesburg. What a beautiful old school for starters !!!! It was founded in 1898.
I went not once, but twice, to this amazing market!! Hubby and I went with Elaine yesterday where I took my camera but was sorry I only had the 50mm lens as I couldn’t get decent photos of the magnificent buildings. Yesterday I went with Jeanette and her friend Madelein with only my mobile phone! I knew Jeanette would have her camera, so I left the photography to the expert 😉 please read her blog post and view her fabulous photographs :- http://www.therealjenty.com/2015/04/a-morning-browsing-through-kamersvol-at-st-johns/
My photos from Saturday ..
Giant crochet rugs – about 1 metre round (or slightly more)!! Really cool!!
Beautiful bench made from oak wine barrels … hubby bought this one !! I spotted them at the last Kamers and fell in love with them
I bought a gorgeous ceramic vase and jug from Storm in a teacup. Speaking to the stall owner of these stunning items, I was told the skilled throwers are from Zimbabwe ..
Note to Elaine – we missed this on Sat. Design Team cushions are fabulous (inside classroom)
Love these giant clothes pegs ..
The chapel door …
My photograph of the interior didn’t come out well so I took an Instagram pic today which came out better …
Opposite the chapel door is the dining hall …
A Hardy look-alike :)!!!!
