Die Skim Grot Maak Oop!

Frikkie's and Frikkettes, the moment Pretoria has been waiting for is finally here! Die Skim Grot shop is having its official opening tomorrow, the 30th of June.
Die Skim Grot or as english peeps call it, the phantom cave, is an initiative started by the guy and girl at Doktrine. The concept behind "Die Grot" is that of an underground designer goodie shop with the emphasis on new and  exciting local designer products by local artists, bands and designers. The idea is to create that same excitement one gets when walking into a secondhand shop and not knowing what to expect or what gems you will find.
The opening event takes place tomorrow, 30th June, at Die Moederskip which is situated on the corner of Pretorius and Hilda streets in Hatfiled. Doors will be opening at 11h00 and the event will run until 19h00. Pull in for some great shopping, a bit of music, and a bit of dop! Bands featured tomorrow include the likes of Yesterdays Pupil, Yo Grapes, A skyline on Fire, Vampire 9000, Sassquatch, Doctor Khumalo and Spookwolf!! The times for the bands are as follows:

                                                                          12h00: Spookwolf
                                                                          13h00: Doctor Khumalo
                                                                          14h00: Vampire9000
                                                                          15h00: A Skyline on Fire
                                                                          16h00: Yo Grapes
                                                                          17h00: Sassquatch
                                                                          18h00: Yesterdays Pupil
                                                                          19h00: Spookwolf

There will also be a "Live-Drawing" demonstration by Brent Swart (BrentBlack Studios) and Gerhard van Wyk (This Pencil). There will be a bar available, so make sure to gets yourself a KAPOWERADE!!

Bluebird Opening Sale

Bluebird is a clothing venture started by two young P-town locals, and is aimed at young and old with styles that will suit both. You can think about them as an up-cycling fashion brand, where they take old clothes nobody wants anymore and fix them up and add small modern details which then makes each piece very unique. Their prices are also very reasonable with the items ranging from R50 all the way to R350 for the most expensive pieces. Bluebird is a very young brand and tomorrow is their very first sale!!
The sale is taking place on the 2 June 2012 at number 4 Lynnwood Gardens, 11 The Ring Street, Lynnwood, Pretoria. This will be an event where anyone can come view and purchase Bluebird items. They will have a variety of vintage clothing, handbags and accessories for both men and women.
The doors open at 11:00 and the sale will run until 14:00. There will be wine and juice available, with bottomless wine going for R10 a glass!! What a deal!!! As they are a very young brand, it will be cash only. There will also be very safe parking provided.
