My friend Kate joined Paige and I to browse the Made in the Cape Market at Cavendish Square which runs until Sunday 5 August. There is a wide selection of items for sale on the ground and first floors and, as the name of the market suggests, all made in the Cape. These are just some of my favourite items for sale, and if you don’t make it to the market this weekend, they will be back over the next few months between 31 August – 2 September, 5-7 October, and 2 – 4 November.
