            Market Place 


To the market we go... Ah- hh, to the market we went. Wish you were there! 

We could have said hello in many different African languages, broken into a greeting song, danced with natives and tourists alike, and at the end, thank you for a wonderful time, before moving on.

You would have loved it!!  
We Sure did!!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                                      Market Spirit
Upon our return, we traced our memory for stored data of the trip and were astonished to find that we had encapsulated each experience with the natives, traders or dealers into separate entities. And interwoven into all the stories were the heightened awareness of the peoples' warmth, sense of fairness, and kindness. In many instances, they brought pure unmitigated joy and laughter into routine shopping experiences, and if you the customer managed to bring joy or laughter to the mix, you got the best price!

They were also very aware of customer service. The transaction was not over until they and/or their neighbors (sometimes it involved an entire market section!) secured your purchases into the lorry, truck, car, motorcycle, moped, bicycle, hand truck or however you came to be in the market! If in performing this service they lost other business, they did not seem to mind.


These to us were our African market memorable experiences to relive, relish, remember and share. May all your shopping outings be just as memorable!!!

Enjoy our fine market wares.

Ndebele, are fascinating dolls that were made by hand by the Ndebele people of South Africa, depicting cultural themes of friendship, family and culture. We adore them here at Ashione Gallery and believe them to be very unique and special.

But alas, we are coming to our last offering of these dolls. After we have sold what we have in stock, we will not be re-stocking, so if you ever wanted a fine Ndebele doll or a collection of them, this is your chance! Enjoy.
