Our Work - Projects

Christmas in the Home

Christmas in the Home is a very special seasonal market that resides in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Showcasing only the very best in local design, this annual expo is all about unearthing those hidden treasures and unique items that you won’t always find in a store.

We just love beautiful things and that’s why, at Christmas in the Home, you’ll discover a wonderland of exquisitely handcrafted goods.

From trendy décor and gourmet foods to boutique style clothing and accessories, you’ll find the perfect gift for that special someone – and maybe spoil yourself a little too!

While Christmas in the Home has become an annual tradition, our creative offering remains fresh and forever changing. Which keeps our friends and visitors coming back – year after year.


HOW IT ALL BEGAN

The story begins in 2002 when a group of crafter friends decided to organise an open day at a private home in Port Elizabeth. Little did they realise what they had started. 

Christmas in the Home was an instant hit.

Since then, the event has grown exponentially, moving homes from a church hall to the PE Club, the King Edward Hotel & Conference Centre and the Moffett on Main Lifestyle Centre, where it finally attained expo status and capacity.

Currently hosted by The Boardwalk Hotel & Conference Centre, Christmas in the Home sells the wares of more than 180 exhibitors over a four-day period and attracts around 10 000 delighted shoppers.

OUR HOMESPUN PHILOSOPHY

Our aim has always been to provide an affordable platform for our most gifted artists, craftsmen and entrepreneurs to showcase their inspired creations and God-given talents.

The exhibitors who choose to sell their wares at Christmas in the Home don't necessarily sell to stores. Many of these entrepreneurs use this expo as an exclusive platform to show their designs to the public.

Giving back is a key principle of how we do business. We therefore also give a number of non-profit organisations the opportunity to exhibit and sell their products at no charge.
