Dreaming of Africana

Some may miss the hunt and driving hundreds of kilometres to visit crafts markets and small stores. However, most of us will welcome the opportunity to find antique, vintage, traditional or derived South African and African artefacts on bidorbuy.

 

In the Antiques & Collectables – Africana section, you will find tribal arts and crafts such as hand-woven baskets or masks, as well as voortrekker and other artefacts. Most of them will work beautifully as character pieces, and most are worthy of collecting. To illustrate the point, here are some of the currently listed items:
