Creative Business: I heart Market

Each month I find myself at I heart Market. In the past it was to sell my wares and at present it is to support clients and also assist with our family run business - Woodnewz. Either way I get my creative fix by chatting to some of Durban's finest makers, designers and artists. Each stand brings something unique and each business owner offers a different outlook. There are established businesses, new creatives, emerging ones and super successful ones too. Many people think that selling at a market is perhaps not ideal, but I heart Market is different. It's a launching pad for some of SA's best work. If you haven't popped by - do yourself a favour and add the first Saturday of each month to your calendar. I heart Market is aptly hosted at the landmark of our city - Moses Mabhida Stadium from 9am - 2pm. In March you are in for a treat as I heart Market will be popping up at Decorex Durban too on the 19th. Double the shopping chance so get those purses out. I'll be there chatting, shopping and helping this week - 5th March.

At the February market these caught my eye so I decided to take a few impromptu snaps with my phone to share with you...
