About Us

“The best partnerships aren’t dependent on a mere common goal but on a shared path of equality, desire, and no small amount of passion. “

Sarah MacLean

What could a young (30) aspiring black guy (half Zim and half South African) and a retired white lady (66) from UK possibly have in common?

The answer was simple, “a passion for crafts, marketing and a desire to succeed.” It was these joint passions shared between Graham Mutyambizi (Founder Evolution Media House) and Amanda Shackley (founder of the Swellengram) that led to the creation of the Cape Trade Market. A user friendly portal that would allow local crafters to market and sell their goods without the hustle and high commission rates that have become the norm.

“We hope you will enjoy using this portal in as much as we enjoy making it and publicising it.”
