Rosebank Mall is quite famous in Parktown,especially for its Sunday African Arts and Crafts Market

on Level 2 of Car Parking,where Cars are not allowed to Park just for this weekly Fair!

You can see the warning sign incase any car is parked here!

I have always enjoyed,visiting such Flea Markets,from Amsterdam to Paris,

where invariably Millionaires visit often and bargain to the bottom most..

thats how probably they became Millionaires!

Talking to Artisans like Lloyd,one comes to know their real hardship and their

single minded devotion to display their artistic skills.

It is quite pleasant to talk to Ms.Tracy Armstrong,whose Masai Paintings(see pic 1)

goes for anything between R 10000 to R 15000.

When I wanted to take these photos,she willingly permitted and gave her visiting card,which has this Masai Painting!

It is interesting to talk to a specialist in Gems and stones,whose artistic Gem Trees invited many visitors!

I found a few trees with Gems@just R 25 and was pleasantly surprised!
