Sunday Main Street Life- The Maboneng Precinct

Morning Flashers!!

I have been scarce around these parts of late and for this I do apologize. Alas, it has not been in vain!

I’ve been rampaging, raging and razzling around Joburg lately with the crew and have so much to be excited about. For some time now, we’ve all been meaning to venture out to Arts on Main. Based in the Maboneng Precinct in the Joburg CBD, this massive warehouse is home to some of Joburgs little treasures. A variety of tantalizing cuisine from paella to dumplings and from a 9 layered red velvet cake to passion fruit macaroons, you’ll fall inlove with not only the array of delicious-ness but the atmosphere. It’s the kind of culture that’s only available at this time, this place with great food & beer, lemonade and of course mojito’s!!

Here’s what we got up to:

If you’re looking for a culturally enriching afternoon, then Arts on Main is definitely one of those things you have to do. The food market is situated downstairs and is nothing short of amazing. Upstairs you’ll find a quaint fashion market stocked some vintage fashion, Jozi inspired jewelry and a few odds and ends to accent your home with.

The other stunning little find was a gallery upstairs that is covered from to wall with a collection of photographs printed on canvas. The idea behind this was to take kids from the street and equip them with a camera in an effort to inspire them and teach them the art of photography. For me, this was one of those things that made my day.

Again, thank you to all my friends for taking the trip. What an awesome way to spend the weekend with a bunch of stunning friends.

Holy Vintage Rust Buckets!!

This weekend I figured it was time to start making my house a home and for me, I’ve always taken caution to the details. Friday I got stuck into my room, I really should have taken a before and after picture because it went from disgusting to dashing in just 3 hours. It was like watching an episode of Hoarders.

So on Saturday I set out to find myself a storage solution and maybe if a little summin’ summin’ popped into play then I’d consider it. I’ve been wanting to do the whole pallet thing but was and still struggle to find any but I did however find the most incredible wooden crates. The only sensible things was to purchase them. BOOM!! So storage was less of a problem now. Walking around this little treasure island always makes me happy.

This scrap yard *SLASH* Antique warehouse is filled with exciting things. DIY enthusiasts will lose their minds in this place. I know I did! They have everything from kitchen cupboards, sinks, vintage military uniforms, camera’s,¬†gramophones,¬† typewriters, beds, headboards, wooden window frames, vinyl, tables, chairs, hardware, tools, clothes and so much more… Its definitely worth a trip!

You see things and ideas come rushing through!! Here’s a look at a few photographs I snapped to show you into my rustic vintage haven…
