Christmas is always just around the corner. For designers, makers, and business owners this season is busy (hopefully!) and equals hectic weekends with design markets and long queues at the local post office. Planning and attending markets always mean a great deal to me, and even though they drain me completely, I could not go through Christmas without them. I am never sure whether I love or hate them, or just hate that I love them? However, this year I am attending two! You can read about them below:
WHAT The best design market in Denmark
WHERE Grønttorvet, 2500 Valby, Copenhagen
WHEN 19.-20. Nov
The best design market in Denmark
Grønttorvet, 2500 Valby, Copenhagen
It is not a coincidence that founder Herle Jarlgaard Hansen won the IVÆKST Award as the female entrepreneur of the year. Her progressive and passionate ideas are the foundation of FINDERSKEEPERS success (along with her hardworking team!). All designers and makers are personally curated before every market. Spoil yourself and your loved ones with great design and delicious food and get your Christmas shopping done early this year. This is, without a doubt, the best place for both exhibitors and visitors and definitely worth a visit.

Design, dining, second-hand clothes & Workshops
Postterminalen, Tietgensgade, 1704 Copenhagen V
The iconic Post terminal (right across to the Central Station in Copenhagen) is very soon converted into a hotel. The location is currently empty and therefore the perfect space for a weekend of events. There will be creative workshops for children, social dining, flea markets (arranged by Rita Blå’s – Copenhagens best!) and of course a designer market.
The event is open from 10-18 both days, and the admission is free!
