The Factory on Grant:

A couple of weeks ago I found out about this new trendy night market, The Factory on Grant in Norwood. This unique market not only has local vendor stands that come to the market on Friday evenings but it also has the normal day time stores which include: The Factory Shop, Somerset Jane, Gillian Rose and the restaurant Vovo Tello. If you want something fun and away from the conventional shopping malls, what are you waiting for?

One of my favourite stores was The Factory Shop who I collaborated with for this post. The store can be put into the perfect "his and hers'' gifting store category. It has everything from candles, to man cloths(a men's apron), braai tools, hats, ponchos and more! I personally love hats so for this post, Judy who owns The Factory on Grant, was kind enough to let me feature them on my blog.

The hats are from the brand Simon and Mary, The Factory shop is one of the few stockists among other Joburg stores like: Carbon, Ingenuite, The Jungle, McCullagh & Bothwell, Prime Store, Palazzo Pitti and THESIS. The Simon and Mary hats are made locally in Johannesburg and have a long legacy established in headwear. The hats range between R450 - R800 at The Factory Shop.

There was such a wide variety of hats to have fun with but in the end these were the top three must haves:

1) The traditional Audrey hat

2) The traditional Mounty hat

3) The traditional Katherine hat

To end off the shoot, Layla who took the photos for the shoot encouraged me to do a sports luxe take for the dungaree.
