Undoubtedly, one of my favourite pastimes is to go treasure hunting in antiques shops.

This is something I grew up doing. Following my parents around these shops, with my hands behind my back, terrified that I would knock the century old teacup display over! But it became a ritual that has influence the way I turned out and the way I perceive beautiful things.

Antique and Things is one of the shops I grew up visiting. It has been around for as long as I can remember and it never fails to impress me with it beautiful merchandise.

Antique and things is a family run business. They sell antiques as well as original furniture manufactured in their workshop.

The shop layout is so interesting, around each corner is a new discovery. The outside workshops have now been converted into rustic shopping areas, filled with beautiful old furniture, delightful teacups and decorative plates.

There is also a shop called Mary Jane within the antique shop. Here clothing, accessories and meditation bowls are sold. The merchandise is imported from Nepal.

HEAVENLY Sugarcraft Delights…

Being a student is tough, your life is crazy busy, you don’t sleep much, you spend most of your time in class or doing projects or learning. If you are me, you spend 95% of your free time sleeping, which leaves very little time for friends and family. What is my point? I needed a break from my life – very desperately! Luckily, I found one not so far from home. It is situated in Berea, it’s called heavenly sugarcraft delights, but after my lovely visit, I have now dubbed it: Sue’s store 🙂

Sue is the owner of the shop and what a pleasant and friendly Sue she is. What a delight to chat to, she definetely adds to the whole experience of sugarcrafting. 9 Years ago in Dubai, Sue was a bored housewife with a passion for sugarcrafting, she took some courses and really got stuck into it. After 13 years of sugarcrafting in Dubai they moved to East London, where she carried on with her passion. She had difficulty getting her hands on the products and tools she needed so she took some initiative and opened a store herself. She imports most of the products in the store so you can be assured of good quality.

Sugarcrafting is very similair to working with clay, but the sweet thing is you can eat it!

Sue tells me that she thinks you get a natural high when sugarcrafting since the sugar is absorbed into your body via osmosis 🙂

I am amazed by the detail and accuracy. The leaves, the vines – gorgeous!

Above – Some of the ready made decorations she has in store.

You can do sugarcrafting courses with Sue ranging from R100 student classes to R500 advanced classes, and, for the fun-hearted she has a fairie course 🙂 This is also a great way of meeting new people and making friends.

While I was visiting Sue was teaching a class on teddy bears.

*The tools they use for sugarcrafting can also be used for puter work since the tools are heat resistant.

You can order birthday or wedding cakes from her:

I hope you found this experience as delightful as I did. To get hold of Sue check out our treasure trove. She is also on facebook: Heavenly Sugarcraft Delights. I left with the exciting news that she has an online shop opening soon!
