Design Indaba Expo – Part 1

Rueben and I went to the Design Indaba Expo at the Cape Town Convention Centre yesterday. I definitely enjoyed it. It was inspiration galore under one roof. I’ve seen so many South African brands online, but never got around to going to the shops where their goods are sold. The Indaba was a brilliant way of having all these brands under one roof. I’d definitely recommend it. I am just happy I didn’t spend my whole month’s salary!

Rueben took some snaps of my favourite stands and I thought I’d show them to you in two posts since there are so many pics! All of these shops sell online if not by online shop then via email.

For re-purposed furniture. I must visit this shop opposite The Biscuit Mill soon!

    I don’t really use the .NET framework, but I do a lot of PHP coding. Although I do know C++ and Java, I haven’t done much with them with web developing. That’s really neat to know that you are a computer junky too. Hehe. :) I do freelance work for commercial, NGOs, and government.
