It’s perfectly understandable that after a visit to the KwaZulu Natal Midlands a person might find it difficult to live anywhere else. This is certainly true of Jan and Louise. A holiday to the area was all it took to convince this talented couple that Nottingham Road is where they belong. Jan and Louise are Stained Glass specialists with decades of experience between them and they opted for a life of artistic creativity and fresh air, away from the rush hour traffic and big city crime they experienced in the Free State.

The little village of Nottingham Road nestled amongst the lush green rolling hills of KZN became their new new home. Over the years they have happily become entwined in the lives of those in the artistic community of the magical Midlands Meander.

Alongside Jan and Lulu’s small shop is a studio and exhibition area where they produce ceramics, stained glass, decoupage, candles and many other handcrafted and affordable treasures. Their shop has also become a haven for hungry and thirsty Meanderers, who stop off to indulge in Lulu's Pies, Ginger Beer, Rusks, Biscuits, Jan's Olives and other Deli stuff.

Visit Aladdin’s Corner to meet the friendly faces that live and labour there. Pop in and visit them at Nottingham road. Turn right at the top of the off-ramp and follow directions to Nottingham Road. Just after the Junction take the turn to the right and travel under a railway bridge. Take the first turn to the left and there they are — on the right hand side next to the Spar.
