Know-it-all Marketplace 2017

roll up maquette3 copy 2

Know-it-all passport® is happy to announce a great opportunity for our creative community! Know-it-all passport is hosting its first pop-up shop (temporary shop) in a central Geneva location from 27 November through 23 December, 2017. Know-it-all Marketplace will showcase local creative people who have a passion and love to share this passion. 

Lisa Cirieco-Ohlman, publisher of Know-it-all passport®, explains, "I have dabbled in Christmas markets for years selling various creations ranging from cookie mixes in jars to painted rocks, and I know how hard it is when you have to pay for a table AND sell your wares all day. At this pop up shop vendors leave their creations and I will be there to sell for them. The shopping center boasts a well-trafficked area that will reach many more clients. Vendor's are enthused to test the market and get feedback as well as share their creations! Isn’t that why we make them in the first place? To share?

"This is a fun way of being unified and supportive doing what we love… together we can make it work… the whole is greater than the sum of its parts! "

With around 50 different vendors selected to participate out of 97 requests, clients searching for the unusual, creative, and fun gifts for the holiday season will surely find what they are looking for. Come along to browse, chat, meet up with friends, and buy! Of course, our book will be selling there too in case you need to get a copy.
