Know-it-all passport® has opened its third pop-up shop and it will stay open until the 31st August.
Know-it-all Marketplace is located in the Pâquis neighborhood in Geneva, just behind the hotels Kempinski and Beau Rivage, a stone’s throw from the lake, and near the Place des Alpes and the Brunswick Monument. The front of the shop is quite misleading as behind these doors is nearly 200m of shop space. It is also one block from the Library in English in case you need a good read!
Over 50 local creators
Each of the 52 creators has had to go through a selection process to avoid imported products with no local creative input. There are creators from many local regions including Nyon.
Check out Nyon based, Pilani’s natural products. Pilani means”Good Health to all” in the South African native language of Xhosa. See website here.
“No Whey Granola” from Founex (number 91 on the link here) sells granola which is a blend of oats, various grains, seeds and nuts: with no added sugar, perfect for breakfast, or a healthy treat during the day.
Petit-Printemps from Bellevue designs little dresses for girls and specialises in embroidery and smocking details.
Other creators include: Thierry who creates lamps out of logs, Christian who became a chocolatier last year, to name just a few.
There are some vendors from previous pop-ups including Oh La Vache with Swiss cow ceramics and dish cloths, Spice Angel with chilli jams, Sue with a summer selection of scrapbooked greeting cards, and Lanxel with locally-named soy candles. .
