Today I’m going to spill the beans on 2 very amazing places in Carlswald & Crowthorne, Midrand. Maybe you have seen the signage, maybe you’ve been there or maybe one of your friends mentioned it to you, but I’m going to tell you anyway.

Memories Corner Country Shops is a quiet old-school country village with a restaurant, shops and even a small wedding chapel right on the corner of Whisken & New Road in Carlswald, Midrand.

One of the most decadent antique shops in Gauteng, Memories Antiques & Collectables, have their showroom on the premises as well. You can find little treasures that range from jewellery to antique furniture here.

Don’t get me started on the beautiful chapel! The intimate wedding chapel was built with reclaimed everything – so it is really something special. Trust me when I say that you have to take a camera…

Pop in for a delightful brunch and country shopping right in the heart of Crowthorne – next to Carlswald and Kyalami – with the whole family this weekend.

The Goddess Factor offers non-surgical & non-invasive fat freeze and anti-aging solutions in a quiet country setting just a stone’s throw from Sandton & Pretoria.

This small aesthetics “clinic” is managed by Megan, an industry veteran, and the owner, Lynnmari.
