The shop is attractively shop-fitted to create an exciting and interesting shopping venue. You choose from the many rental options available within the store that would best promote the sale of your crafts: either individual shelf display areas, units, hanging space or free standing displays. The store is fully staffed with trained sales personnel. And best of all, unlike the temporary day markets, you don’t have to be there!!

The unique ‘village living’ style Douglasdale Village Shopping Centre, opened Nov 2002, is situated on the corner of Douglas Drive and Leslie Road, in Douglasdale: in the Fourways/ Bryanston area, close to Montecasino. Anchor tenants are Woolworth’s Foods and Clicks with a total of 29 shops and a service station! The Centre is opposite the extremely popular Pick n Pay Centre. The primary catchment areas for the Centre are Douglasdale, Fourways, Bryanston, Johannesburg North, Jukskei Park, Norscot and Olivedale. The secondary catchment areas include Bloubosrand, Maroelasdal and the Agricultural Holdings. The immediate surrounding area has seven schools in it and is saturated with cluster developments!

Once you have contracted your rental space, your crafts are to arrive in the store labeled, with the approved computer code number, and the selling price. You then set up, restock or rearrange your display as and when you choose, or for the out of town crafters, our staff will do it for you. Limited storage space is also available. Once an item has been sold, the computer automatically credits your account with the proceeds of the sale, less the percentage retained by The Village Craft Market. Your bank account will then be credited at the end of each month.

Rental and commission charges as well as the Terms and Conditions are available on request.
