Today’s Afridiziak Gifts and Occasions Winter Fair.

Today in London was much milder than it has been so I took the opportunity to enjoy the rare bright winter sunshine to stop by the Afridiziak Gifts and Occasions Winter Fair 2012. It took place at the Electric Social in Brixton.

When I got there it was really buzzing, there was a DJ playing and there were stalls selling a variety of cultural products such as children’s toys; hair and beauty products jewellery and accessories; art, greeting and cards.

It was nice, although I planned to get some gifts for friends I ended up buying stuff for myself ha-ha. But I was pleased to be spending my money within my own community and it was nice to bump into a few suppliers/friends that I already knew.

I didn’t take many pictures but here is what I have:
