This weekend in Gauteng lots of opportunity for shopping at the Hobby X show, Harties food and wine festival, transformers exhibit and other markets.
This show hosts a huge collection of a large variety of hobbies – everything from scrapbooking to woodworking. The nice thing about hobbies is that they can turn into a full time income too. You never know where your passion will take you.
My father always used to exhibit at this show (making frames and woodworking) so it’s bittersweet for me. I have been to the show many times though and always found something interesting.
Celebrate 20 years of everyone’s favourite hobby and craft expo at the Ticketpro Dome, Johannesburg from 2 – 5 March 2017, in Pretoria from 31 Aug – 3 September and in Durban from 29 Sep – 1 October 2017! Whether you need ideas and materials to indulge your creativity, are looking for fun ways to de-stress, or want to make money from your hobby – Hobby-X is your go-to expo.
