Glass and glamour: A new way to see plates and bowls

The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is one of our favourite places to hang out during the summer months in Cape Town. We usually plan our trips there to coincide with the last Sunday of the month so we can also explore the craft market which is held opposite the garden.

A few weekends ago I discovered a gem of a stall there – Fanglasstic – which is home to all things bright and beautiful. The handmade glass bowls, candle dishes, serving platters, fruit stands and plates are gorgeous and very reasonably priced. I went a bit crazy and bought most of their blue and green goodies during my last trip there!

I don’t think the Fanglasstic manufacturers have a website up and running yet, but you can contact them on 083 222 9823 or visit the Kirstenbosch Craft Market to see their wares for yourself. More pictures below…

    1. Thanks Denise! I recently moved things around in the lounge – and now a few of these little gems have pride of place on the display shelf. Pretty indeed…

    1. Hi Evelyn… Nice to meet you! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I have managed to get all the ladies in my family hooked on these glass treasures, but the Kirstenbosch market is about to close for the winter months in Cape Town. Will have to wait until October/November for the chance to browse again!
