Apart from my home being a special place, the other place that I would call special is the Stables Lifestyle Fleamarket situated in Jacko-Jackson Drive, Durban. The Stables operates both on a Wednesday and Friday evening and on a Sunday.
I prefer going to the Stables at night as the atmosphere is warm and vibrant. There’s so much activity going on. The sound of children laughing and playing safely whilst live music can be heard in the background is so comforting. You can find anything from a pair of earrings to an antique chair.
The aroma of all types of cuisine is also prevalent in the air. After visiting the stalls, we would buy dinner and enjoy a drink in the beer garden in front of a live musician.
The Stables is definitely a family place, both for the young and old and not forgetting our furry friends too! The Stables is special to me because my boyfriend and I would normally head out to the Stables every Wednesday and Friday nights where we shared memorable moments together.
I remember on the one occasion, a musician dedicated a love song to my boyfriend and me. The feeling was so overwhelming. It is definitely my special place where memories are made and cherished forever.
