Never mind the weather, we’re excited for tonight’s Stranger in Paradise treasures pop-up shop, curated by Vagabond Joe.

It really is a no brainer; hosted at the The Woodlands Eatery,our favourite Vredehoek hangout,there will be tasty beers,burgers,music,merriment,good people and great treasures to buy.

Many items are one-off originals or vintage and limited edition, so we recommend that you get there at 5PM sharp to get first dibs.

Vagabond Joe showcases the talent of individuals, celebrates the independents and collects a global mixture of the extraordinary, the beautiful and the exotic.

Contributors custom make limited edition designer products and one-off originals for each theme, which are available exclusively through Vagabond Joe.

Novelties from the old to the new,gathered along the road,include clothing, accessories, books, jewellery, art, ceramics and homeware.

Definition from ‘Vagabonding – An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel’ by Rolf Potts

Vagabonding is an outlook on life, a deliberate way of living. It is

  • the act of leaving behind the orderly world, to travel independently for an extended period of time
  • a manner of travel that emphasizes creativity, adventure, awareness
  • vagabonding is about looking for adventure in normal life, and normal life within adventure
  • it’s about taking control of your circumstances instead of passively waiting for them to decide your fate

Sigh. DECO is in love with this vagabonding stuff, almost as much as we love our Pictures Editor and Designer,and the creative genius behind Vagabond Joe, Marushka Stipinovich.

We’ll see you there.
