As an expat I'm expected to bring back African related gifts for birthday and christmas and after 4 years I think I've exhausted the market and TBH on my last trip to the UK in April I found more 'Safari' animal related goods there than I do over here. So it was really nice to see something new.
I had a chance to talk with Tracy (centre of photograph) and she told me she's been interested in art since the age of 4 and her favourite thing to draw are giraffes and anything wearing a tutu, this appeals to me greatly.
With cakes, coffee and champagne on offer and familiar faces I would have like to have stayed longer, but hubbies plane landed half an hour early so I had to leave.
I'm not often in the Johannesburg area, but next time I am, I will call back in.
Some of my favourite items of stationery were the menu and shopping plan, the travel journal and the coasters.
I received an original personalised Tracy Paul notebook and gift labels in exchange for this blog post.
