Niche Market: Creative Stories

by City Savvy Luxembourg

Following on from the success of their first event in autumn 2015, the Niche Market team is back and will be holding a spring market of hand-crafted pieces made exclusively here in Luxembourg on 29th March. Mark your calendars!

Another grey winter is almost over and thoughts are slowly turning to warmer and brighter days. Welcoming in the spring is a great time to declutter, refresh wardrobes and get inspired for the longer days ahead! Why not capture this feeling by popping along to the upcoming Niche Market?

At its heart, the Niche philosophy is to develop a harmonious and distinctive space for the local creative community. In the stylish and central Cathy Goedert Pâtisserie, the market will bring you an array of local artisans who are all passionate about their individual niche. Jewellery and bag designers, ceramists and painters, card and soap makers, knitting and sewing specialists will all be there to present their new collections. From bold and bright to delicate and discreet, each collection reflects the passions and stories of its creator! Luxembourg is growing and so too is its exciting and skilled hand-crafting talent waiting to be discovered.

A visit to the market isn’t only a chance to meet the artists and designers and to see what inspires them, it is also a way of supporting a less fortunate community several thousand kilometres away. In partnership with a small charity, KIFAD UK, Niche Market is working to achieve one of its core aims – raising funds to support a grassroots NGO in Uganda, the Kiyita Family Alliance for Development. KIFAD Uganda works tirelessly to improve the lives of vulnerable families affected by HIV/AIDS. The building of a social-medical clinic is bringing new hope to thousands in poverty who would otherwise not be able to reach appropriate and often life-saving medical care. In buying a vibrant Ugandan bracelet, a delicious cupcake generously made by Cathy Goedert for the market or a raffle ticket or two, you’ll be helping children have regular dental and eye checks, women to receive cancer screening and vulnerable communities to receive essential HIV testing that will protect and improve the health of thousands of people.

A lovely spot for a coffee and cake, a chance to browse and meet the people behind some of the city’s newest creative stories and an opportunity to support a community in need all make the essence of Niche Market. The team will look forward to seeing you there!

 

The Niche Market will take place on 29th March from 10:00 to 17:00. Show your interest here!
