Guys of Design - working deli and shop

Wherever Chris and Brad go they seem to leave a wake of some thriving initiative or another... Think Cape Town’s Karoo Moon, Neighbourgoods Market, Bead Boys... Now they’re back in their home territory, the Eastern Cape, and their focus has moved from their farm on the Kei River to a working shop/deli selling organic and local produce in Port Elizabeth.

Story by Deni Archer

Just a couple of (extra) ordinary guys

Guys-of-Design

Chris and Brad are dynamic to say the least. Wherever they go they seem to leave a wake of some thriving initiative or another... Think Cape Town’s Karoo Moon, Neighbourgoods Market, Bead Boys... they’ve had a hand in all of these and more. Now they’re back in their home territory, the Eastern Cape, and their focus has moved from their farm on the Kei River to a working shop in Port Elizabeth. It’s called Guys of Design, and it’s a fusion of, well, pretty much everything the guys love. Food, furnishings, design, people.

Farm boys know markets

Both Chris and Brad grew up eating seasonally. “We were both farmers’ lads,” says Chris, “and being from a Jewish family, a rich food culture was intrinsic to my world.” For Chris, markets are in his blood - his grandfather was “the biggest market man in PE and Queenstown”, so it’s natural that Guys of Design would include a market model. Chris and Brad love supporting the local community and encourage local ‘tannies’ to bring in their surplus garden produce, which Chris then whips up into some or other gastronomic delight - from jams and preserves to pastries, bakes and salads. On a Saturday morning, you’ll find the shelves of the deli section brimming with local produce including goats cheese and duck eggs from Addo. (Then you’ll be drawn into the tastefully cluttered knick-knacks and furnishings section of the shop, which will keep you enraptured for hours.)

More than food, creativity abounds

They aim to serve only free range “clean and natural” food in their coffee shop where they serve light meals of fresh seasonal produce. The free range pork comes from their own farm where they cross Landrace and African Pig breeds. Chris’s green fingers mean that there are pots with herbs and edible plants scattered all over the “working garden” which has a sizeable veggie patch in the corner, surrounded by second hand furniture in the process of being upcycled.

If you’re around Port Elizabeth and looking for something to excite your senses, you won't be disappointed with a visit to Guys of Design. New and growing fast, this little spot is a fountain of creativity, not to be missed. In their own words “From pieces we create to antiques we acquire, silver and jewellery, to our food - you'll desire”.

Please read my testimony, it can bring solution to the problems you are
facing in life. I met this spell caster Dr Mojo online and read the
testimonies of many persons witnessing how he has help them solve problems
of any kind such as fibroid without surgery, Infertility, cure of diabetes,
breast cancer, weak penis, regulation of menstruation and pains, stroke,
HIV / AIDS, successful interview and work examination, political
achievement, recovery of lost money, quick sales in business or commerce,
choice of good marriage partner, power to bring your ex back, stopping your
man or woman having affair outside your relationship or marriage, power to
win pool, lottery, visa approval, reduction of sagging breast, gun
protecting spiritual ring, promotion at work etc ... I contacted him
through his WhatsApp instant messenger with the phone number +27797427509.I
was absolutely desperate to have my husband back. Life without my husband
was a pain for me and my children. I wanted a drastic change and I thought
that only magic can be the only solution because he was so cruel towards
me. After discussing my problem with Dr Mojo, he gave me hope that my
marriage shall be restored. He gave me confidence that he will make my
husband to come home and he did It! It was a great miracle, He never asked
for money before helping me, all he requested for was some few items i had
to purchase, and i provided these items immediately, he performed the spell
and my marriage was restored immediately. His help is invaluable! I do not
know what I could have done without Dr Mojo, he does his job well, his
powers are so real and effective, I think he is the best caster I can count
on when it comes spells, although at first I never believed in magic until
I had to try, I think there are many who are depressed, desperate and want
this spell to return their happiness, so I have to use this medium to reach
all those who are facing one problem or the other. Contact him immediately
and I can guarantee that your problems are solved. You can also contact him
via emailaddress;solutioncentre1960@gmail.com
website;www.drmojosolutioncentre.com, for quick response call him or
message him through Whatsapp instant messenger with his number+27797427509.

Best online spell caster to Get your Ex back!!
I was going crazy when my husband left me and my two kids for another woman. All thanks to Dr Unity the Best online spell caster that is Powerful and real who helped me to bring back my husband today and restore happiness in my marriage, My name is Natasha Hayes from UK. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. highly recommend Dr Unity, he is Powerful and really love spell caster.

Hello every body my name is Synder Anderson I just want to share my experience with the world on how Lord Alika help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1 kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost e very time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… and my Husband also got a new job and our lives became much better web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news..contact him on lordalikaspelltemple@yahoo.co.uk or +13217666393. web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http
