  Taking a Break at the Flea Market
by Bwana_Brown

Our afternoon visit to the Johannesburg Flea Market was very enjoyable and it only cost 50 cents to get in. We had still been a bit jet-lagged and considered not going at all, but we were glad that we changed our minds and went along with the group. It was Sunday, and the place was really alive with many stalls as well as performers on the pathways themselves. It was fun just to observe the hustle and bustle of this busy place with a hum in the air. We did a little looking for trinkets but only managed to by a belt (for my wife) and a small SA bird book (for me) before we heard the beat of the drums calling us to the dancing session!

What to pay: The leather belt was R20 or US$7

Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
