This is exactly what we needed to see this Thankful Tuesday...

As we approach the end of January, many of us are feeling the strain of 'Januworry'. 

This month can make you feel the pinch as you recover from the spending and responsibilities of the festive season. 

But just like that, we are always reminded that the simple things in life are usually free. 

One of the iconic markets that has graced Durbanites for decades is The Musgrave Market, or as many know it, Essenwood Flea Market. 

We recently came across a video that was shared on TikTok showing the vibe of the market and we thought it was perfectly fitting for this Thankful Tuesday.

It is a great way to do something over the weekend, without the pressure of having to make a purchase. A perfect thing to do before pay day.

What was even greater was we saw another video posted by the market with the singer, Ashleigh J, singing a classic by Miriam Makeba and a couple coming out to dance.
