Christmas spoils galore at pop-up shop

Categories: Care, Community Engagement, and Featured.

Nelspruit Hospice hosted a pop-up shop over the weekend, selling cakes, trinkets and other goodies to Lowvelders looking for the perfect Christmas gift.

Books, second-hand clothing and a vast variety of tasty treats were all on sale at the market that opened for business at 10:00 on Saturday, with stallholders packing up just after 14:00.

Nelspruit Hospice’s Elmarie du Toit said it was a good day for all who visited the market.

“Unfortunately, it was not as busy as our previous market, but we are still so grateful for all the support we received,” said Du Toit.

Nelspruit Hospice thanked Food Lover’s Market Nelspruit for a donation of boerewors for boerie rolls, as well as Elmadre Butchery for prego steaks.
