I attended the latest edition of the Marché sans puces (5 Dec 2013) at the Genev’ ArtSpace. It was a great evening (although we had a difficult time finding the venue). We saw some familiar faces and met new people. First up (above) was our friend at Sérendipité.ch, importing the coolest maganizes from around the globe. I managed to pick up the latest copy of TocTocToc which I’m really enjoying.

I also got the chance to meet Marion from the Geneva-based blog La Maison de Colette. She was presenting her collaboration with Nou C’est Doux: Le Gilet, folk ethnic chic enfant (below). The vest comes in two different designs: Liberty and Wax and sizes run from 2 to 6 years old. Congratulations to Marion on her new adventure!

Next up was Lulaloo {paper stuff} (above). Lulaloo presented very cute paper products for all types of events (great for Christmas). They also make art prints that are lovely to frame and hang anywhere in the home. Also nice is that a portion of their proceeds go to an NGO to help underprivileged children across Latin America.

Last but not least, Magali Riom presented her collection of handbags that are made from vintage or used clothing (what a great idea!). Magali takes the most interesting part of clothing (ie, lace, prints, etc) and transforms it into a bag that can be worn 3 different ways. She takes custom orders so that bags are one of a kind. So bring you old clothes to her for a new life!
