BUY AFRIKA WINNERS (article first published : 1999-11-1)

If you want to see the winning works of the latest Buy-Afrika Christmas competition, many of which were by KZN artists and crafters, you will need to head for Gauteng. More specifically, the Buy-Afrika Christmas Shop at the Village Walk Shopping Centre in Maude Street, Sandown. Running until December 24 is a fascinating exhibition of the winning entries in the second Christmas in Africa Competition which offered prizes worth R25,000.

The shop has been set out in an attractive and welcoming manner, allowing easy viewing of the many innovative and ingenious items. Buy-Afrika was established early in 1998 as a special project of the Liberty Life Foundation to source, develop and package a spectrum of products made in southern African countries that combine the authentic and indigenous with international appeal. Then, to expose these to world markets via the Buy-Afrika website (now cataloguing some 3000 products) and co-ordinated international trade shows.

Further details from Eugenie Drakes at Buy-Afrika on (011) 487-1198/1638 or 083-400 5126.
