Forget "Snakes on a plane"...
This Sunday(27th) these scaly reptiles will have pride of place at the B&B Norwood Rooftop Market
The Hunyani Snake Expo will be on hand to demonstrate, dazzle and delight.
It will feature cobras, vipers, mambas and many more.
Snake expert Clive Reid will present his highly entertaining
and interactive talk on the various species every hour on the hour.
Come along from 10.00am and be photographed with a Python or join the Anaconda in its cage
It certainly looks as if these children were having a good time.
Put aside your preconceived ideas about these reptiles and be prepared to be enthralled and educated.
However, if snakes are not your "bag"...pun intended,
then there are still many other stalls waiting to attract your attention.
You cannot come to Africa and not be interested in skins and hides.
I certainly don't think that you will find these items for sale in any destination off the African continent
"The way we roll" is the slogan of this new stall holder.
Innovative ways to deal with an every day item.
These wire and bead creatures are a must as gifts.
They make wonderful gifts for overseas visitors
who have no room for the ubiquitous wooden Giraffe.
These colourful mugs and plates would make a great talking point at a dinner party...
in New York, London or Paris.
Or perhaps even in Parys.
These products are VERY tasty!
Polish sausage at its very best.
They also do smoked Turkey legs and Trout
Their Sourdough Rye should come with a warning...
Because it can become addictive it is so tasty.
I wonder how this stall holder thought that bottles could be recycled into these.
However he came up with the idea, it works...
And the result is this range of "re-purposed" glassware.
If, like me, you still enjoy the feel of a REAL book,
then this corner of the market is the ideal spot to browse to add to your collection.
Decorations for the year or for this holiday season.
For the religious there are Christmas, Hanukka, Kwanzaa, Eid al-Adha
For those who do not celebrate there is, according to Frank Constanza(of Sienfeld fame)
"Festivus for the rest of us"...
No tree, only a pole around which family members can air their grievances.
