Rainbow Friday: the SA expat’s Friday shopping feature #6

March 18, 2016

We’re back in Australia this week after travelling to the US, UK, Canada and New Zealand.

The one thing South African emigrants who have moved down under rave about, is the quality and selection of South African suppliers in Australia. But if you’re a newbie in Oz, or haven’t shopped around for a while, you may not be aware of all the options available to you. So without further ado, let’s take a look at our shop of the week.

If you have any suggestions, remember to mail those to
