The Fayre has proved to be an exciting addition to the Western Cape diary

Good Morning Sunshine

We would like to thank all of our lovely Visitors for their many visits over the past year. It is a pleasure to see many familiar faces time and time again through our doors and also it’s fantastic to see new faces giving us a try too!

We love having you in our market. Thank you so much for being our Royal Visitor. May you have a prosperous New Year.

I am happy to report, that we ended the year off with a wonderful surprise visitor – Alvon Collison loving known as “Mr Showbiz” in South Africa for many years. Alvon Collison energy is bigger than life, as always boisterous on stage, flamboyant, talented and always happy, always greeting friends with a song. There is none like him … and they don’t make ‘em like him any more.

Alvon Collison introduced the Belly Dancers, partook in the competitions, supported our Exhibitors, sang and entertained us, rounding off singing happy birthday. The thrill of uniting again with Alvon Collison left me breathless. Thank you Arlene Newman for inviting Alvon, it was the best birthday gift I received. (view photos)
The Odd One Out Competition was a roaring success. Our Exhibitors ‘hid’ the items well. Visitors were running round together looking for items helping everyone.

Congratulations to our 17 Winners, you really earned the prizes. Congratulations to Charmaine for winning the Exhibitor prize. Well done everyone.

Join us on Facebook for regular updates: your photo might just be on our banner.... watch out for our in-house spiritual photographer Melanie Watermeyer Who knows, your photo might just be the banner for the week!

We are pleased to report that our Charity: Locals Helping Locals had their best year thanks to your support and care.

A year of creativity and self-expression awaits us all in 2019, the 3 Universal Year.
2019 is a “3” year in Numerology. It is a year of creativity, generosity, abundance and positive energy. We are influenced by a sense of freedom, renewed self-expression, and the ability to see past obstacles.

For many of you, 2018 – Universal 11/2 Year was quite challenging on many levels, as you confronted within your life those areas that were preventing you from truly shining, being yourself, and experiencing your very own Shambhala here on Earth.  

You likely treaded very lightly, spent time reflecting on your inner self, and dealt with your share of stops and starts 2018. By contrast, 2019 will be imbued with a bolder energy and a greater desire to get things done.

The number ‘3’ in numerology is all about joy, creativity, communication, emotional sensitivity, expression, socialising… and I will say it again… JOY!!!   So 2019 will be a year of fun, allowing our passionate hearts drive our endeavours, being lighter, more free-spirited, and creatively expressive and putting PLAY into our work, our relationships, our finances & our health & wellbeing.

If you have felt a deep rumbling in your life over the past couple of years, a call to change your work/relationships/home, a call to step into something bigger & more wildly beautiful… then 2019 is set to be THE YEAR where your inner-most heartfelt desires are set to take form.  Get ready to open your wings & FLY !

The last time we experienced a Universal 3 Year was 9 years ago in 2010, then 9 years before that in 2001, then 9 years before that in 1992, 1983, 1974, 1965 etc… You may wish to look back on those years in your life, and see if you can see any patterns that relate to a Universal 3 Year vibration for you!
