First Afridiziak Gifts and Occasions Christmas Shopping Extravaganza

First Afridiziak Gifts and Occasions Christmas Shopping Extravaganza

To kick start the festive season, we are pleased to announce that the first annual Afridiziak Gifts and Occasions Christmas Shopping Extravaganza will be held on Saturday 4 December from 11am to 5pm at the Oval House Theatre in south-east London. This unique shopping event brings together exhibitors who will be offering affordable cultural gifts you won’t find on the shelves of local high street shops or department stores.

The family day gives shoppers the opportunity to pick up inspiring gifts which ooze creativity and in many cases that bespoke, handmade touch – it’s a chance to give your loved ones something a bit more personal and thoughtful.

You will find a wide assortment of gift types to cross off your gift-giving list and no doubt pick up something for yourself too.

You can expect to see top quality exhibitors who will be showcasing the finest selection of culturally inspired merchandise.

Our exhibitors will be selling a variety of unique, cultural gifts including: children’s toys; books for all ages; hair and beauty products many of which will have been naturally/organically produced; jewellery and accessories; greeting cards; clothing for children and women; and seasonal food and drink.
Charity: We have chosen the African-Caribbean Leukaemia Trust [ACLT] as our official charity for 2010 and will be donating a third of proceeds taken on the day to them. The ACLT will be present on the day and are using the event as a donation recruitment drive. We are also pleased that they will be there to announce the raffle prize winners.
