A “Market of Wonders” with African Flair! What Are We Talking About? Check Out Photos from Oja-Ara



Did you miss any of the editions of  Oja-Ara, Market of Wonders? If you did, then you missed a lot.

Oja-Ara made it’s debut in Lagos on Sunday 18th December 2011 at the Unity Center in GRA Ikeja, and has gone ahead to host two more fairs on the 26th of February 2012 at the Incubator in Victoria Island and on the 4th of March 2012 at the 10 Degrees Event Center in Ikeja. All three fairs provided a haven for shoppers, as they were feted to a beautiful buffet of fashion and lifestyle products, great music and food. Some lucky shoppers went home with gifts from vendors and sponsors.

Oja-Ara from inception has showcased the latest lifestyle goods and services from over 150 vendors in categories such as menswear, womenswear, accessories, children’s clothing and toys, home accessories, health and beauty products and more. Also on hand were business support service providers such as Mocality and Dealfish. They showed business owners how to maximize the returns on the business at an affordable cost.

If you didn’t attend and you will like to know all that went down at the event, don’t sweat it because BN exclusively brings to you all the pictures!

    now, this is what you call a market!Lots of great options!love the Tosho Wood display, that red maxi skirt(abi dress) is hot. I see Tara in the house too, i do not like her make up much(esp the HIP collection), while the colors are bright, you have to pack on a lot for it to stay,it just keeps falling off during application. Love the colorful shoes, bags and jewelry!!Everything looks on point

    @ Addy, use eye primer to get for longer wear on your eye shadow, it makes a great difference.
