The Story Behind


My name is Carryn and I am the "Us" in TheBurbs.online. 

This platform was created to provide an online marketplace for our incredibly talented and creative exhibitors from The Constantia Gift Fair - an annual market held in Constantia in the first week of November. I also own the Constantia Gift Fair and have run this market since 2010. It has been such an amazing journey - planning this event every year.......and all the prep work is so worth it when I wander around the market over the 5 days and see all our happy shoppers and happy sellers! 

With the unknown of COVID-19 and wondering whether we will be seeing all those happy faces, I started working on creating an online platform which would hopefully provide some relief to our exhibitors with increased sales and some much needed retail therapy for all the shoppers out there...

I have taken to online shopping with the lockdown and am loving the opportunity to support my local brands. It feels like Christmas when boxes arrive at your door - even if it is the groceries! 

I am excited to keep searching for new & beautiful items to include in our offering and to develop TheBurbs.online into your local artisinal marketplace. I hope you join me on this journey...
