If you’re looking for unique, affordable African-inspired gifts for the festive period, why not stop by the Abuja Arts and Crafts Village this weekend. Cassava Republic Press will be organising a Christmas fair at its new bookshop/gallery at No. 62b in the Arts and Craft Village, opposite the Sheraton Hotel, Abuja (Nigeria) on Saturday, 10th of December from 2- 6 pm.
The fair will boast a bazaar featuring a wide variety of local goods – from pottery to Ankara bags and Batik quilts – for sale. Kids will be treated to an afternoon of storytelling and art tutorials.
In addition, we will be offering a special holiday discount of 10% on selected bundles of our titles. These easily affordable bundles will come wrapped in a trademark Cassava Republic wrapping paper or tied with cheerful Ankara cloth to give them a unique, festive touch.
Attendance for the fair is free and open to the public. It will be a fun day of shopping and exhibitions, showcasing the best of Nigerian talent. Best of all, it’ll be a great chance to check out the Cassava Republic Gallery and Bookshop, our new retail space in the heart of Abuja.
We offer great titles from all over the global south as well as a relaxing place to view paintings and photography from some of the undiscovered gems of Nigerian art. Make sure to come and grab some of our Nigerian and African authored books. We can’t wait to see you there!
