Events – The Life Market Day at Snowflake
Oh man, if I knew what fun the Market Day at the Snowflake Building was gonna be, I would have grabbed my big camera and notepad that day and take some serious notes to share with you here !
But I still have these snaps to show you and hope that this will be just enough to convince you to make your way over on their next Life Market Day.
Roughly 120 kilometres west-southwest of Johannesburg, lies the city of Potchefstroom which hosts the campus of the North-West University and there is a buzz in that town that you ought to know about !
The Snowflake Silo building – an old flour mill of Snowflake, has been around forever, but in recent years, the owner, Albert Bothma, has created a buzz around the building by offering a wide variety of events, shows and exhibitions.
(apparently the place to be after hours during the Aardklop festival…)

It is an amazing building in itself and even that is worth paying a visit !
I was mesmerized by the sunrays that made its way through every possible entryway it could find….adding to the overall ambience of the flaky walls and peeling paint that reminds you of the place’s years gone by.
You have to be there to join in on the “coolness factor” and crafty merchandise that this community has to offer.
Keep an eye on their facebook page (Snowflake Potchefstroom) to know where to find them, when they have events….and yes – like them – they are super cool !
But MOST IMPORTANT…….
