Abstract

The choice of location of street traders and the products they sell reflect specific geographies of flows of people. In this study the focus is on the spatial relationships between arts and crafts trading and the tourist market. This article presents the outcomes of research into the characteristics and geographies of informal trade in arts and crafts in South Africa's four main metropolitan city centres. The results show that informal selling of arts and crafts is a relatively small component of street trading in all four centres. Intracity variations are reported and the geographical patterns of arts and crafts traders in the four centres analysed with GIS software. The purpose of this analysis is to identify concentrations of traders specialising in arts and crafts within the general distributions of informal traders in the four cities.


Die geografiese vloei van mense word gereflekteer deur die keuse wat informele handelaars uitoefen ten opsigte van hul ligging en die produkte wat hulle verkoop. Die studie fokus op die ruimtelike verhoudings tussen die kuns- en handwerkhandel en die toeriste mark. Hierdie artikel bied die uitkomste van die navorsing na die eienskappe en geografie van die informele handel in kuns- en handwerk in Suid-Afrika se vier hoof metropolitaanse stedelike kerne. Die resultate toon dat informele handel van kuns- en handwerk 'n relatief klein komponent van straathandel in al vier die stede is. Intra-stadvariasies word gerapporteer en die geografiese patrone van kuns-en handwerkhandelaars in die vier stede word met behulp van GIS-sagteware ontleed. Die doel van hierdie analise is om konsentrasies van handelaars wat spesialiseer in kuns- en handwerk te identifiseer binne die algemene verspreidings van informele handelaars in die vier stede.
