Events – The Life Market Day at Snowflake


Oh man, if I knew what fun the Market Day at the Snowflake Building was gonna be, I would have grabbed my big camera and notepad that day and take some serious notes to share with you  here !

But I still have these snaps to show you and hope that this will be just enough to convince you to make your way over on their next Life Market Day.

Market Day

Roughly 120 kilometres west-southwest of Johannesburg, lies the city of Potchefstroom which hosts the campus of the North-West University and there is a buzz in that town that you ought to know about !

The Snowflake Silo building – an old  flour mill of Snowflake,  has been around forever, but in recent years, the owner, Albert Bothma, has created a buzz around the building by offering a wide variety of events, shows and exhibitions.

(apparently the place to be after hours during the Aardklop festival…)

It is an amazing building in itself and even that is worth paying a visit !

building insideI was mesmerized by the sunrays that made its way through every possible entryway it could find….adding to the overall ambience of the flaky walls and peeling paint that reminds you of the place’s years gone by.

You have to be there to  join in on the “coolness factor”  and crafty merchandise that this community has to offer.
