Ryan & Liesa {Wedding}

On Saturday 2nd March, Farmboy and I headed off to the Crab Apple Chapel in Dargyl (in the Midlands) to celebrate the marriage of two very special people. The reception was held at The Cairn of Old Kilgobbin, a gorgeous country style venue with lots of love and soul. 
Ryan & Liesa Rollin are the beauty and brains behind the antique cutlery jewelry brand and shop in Howick, called Rollin Vintage.
With their creative flair and appreciation for all things vintage, their wedding was absolutely beautiful. 

Here are a few photographs of the day...{not too many of them as I will be giving those more personal ones to them as their wedding present}.


Rollin Vintage & Friends {Howick}

After a tiring Saturday morning spent stand up paddling with Ryan & Liesa, we headed on over to their shop Rollin Vintage & Friends to see how the shop has been coming along. And all I can say is wow! I first posted about their exciting new venture into realm of retail in May this year (click here to see where they started off) and I can only say that the shop is booming and looking absolutely fantastic!
In their own words:
"Rollin Vintage & Friends grew out of an appreciation for Proudly South African, hand crafted, recycled goods.

As our personal business Rollin Vintage grew, we wanted to expand our horizons and venture forth into the retail world. We bumped heads with consignment, mark ups, bad attitudes and service toward our product. One morning Ryan woke up with an idea that changed all of this for us.To start a shop where we could represent the crafter, selling their items at their prices and on their behalf, giving them the best service and value for money - Rollin Vintage & Friends was born.

We have sourced products which meet one or all of the following criteria - being hand crafted, proudly South African and Recycled. We want to promote crafters who are taking a chance on their skill and living their passion - doing what they love"

A few photo's of what we got up to this weekend with our newly engaged friends, Ryan & Liesa (whom you may recognize as the faces behind the awesome Rollin Vintage & Friends store in Howick).

We tried Stand Up Paddling, which is a whole lot harder than it looks, topped off with some hot coffee to help our tired bodies recover...and all this before 8 o'clock on a Saturday! And now it's time for a Sunday in bed :)

Rollin Vintage {Shop} Launch!

This friday, 1st June 2012, Rollin Vintage will be launching their new premises in Howick, just outside Pietermaritzburg. Ryan and Liesa started Rollin Vintage at the beginning of this year, and have been an unstoppable force since then. I did a post on their pieces before, click here, when they were just starting up their business, and it has been amazing to see them grow. Their shop is just the beginning. Not only will they be showcasing their gorgeous antique cutlery jewelry, they will also be stocking a host of other South African handmade designs and crafts. If you are in the Pietermaritzburg area on Friday afternoon, why not pop by!



These are the *before the stock has arrived* photo's, just to give you a little glimpse of what's in store on Friday.

Ryan and Liesa!

How amazing is this Radio!? *Not for sale*



Ryan's pride and joy! He spent many hours lovingly crafting this counter...

Lots of natural light make the shop a very inviting place to be in winter...

All four of us were studying our Postgrad Teaching Certificate at the University of Kwazulu Natal, but Liesa had other idea's, and left the course to follow her dream (inspiring woman!).
