Unique Christmas Shopping in Basel for Children - Hello Switzerland
So the time of the year where we need to decide where to do the Christmas shopping for our children, family and friends is approaching. It is very easy to run out of options and ideas in a small town like Basel. But if we really look beyond the large stores we can find several interesting options. Especially if one is looking for fair, organic, and handmade products of unique design.
Hello Switzerland's last issue of 2016 has an article by alegria's mumprenuer (page 44) on some of the unique store locations in Basel for shopping for children's products.
Amongst her favorite are Merci Fair and The Change maker, as they have beautifully designed unique products but also their fare-trade ethos.
Merci Fair is all about fair products and is a member of Swiss Fair Trade. They import handicrafts from Africa, Asia and Latin America. It is a beautifully decorated store where one can find a great variety of exotic and unique accessories and items for the house, children, as well as food items. Missionsstrasse 21, 4055.
The Change Maker has seven different locations in Switzerland. All their products are fair, handmade, organic, eco-friendly, recycled, energy efficient, and made in Switzerland. Their products vary from household, electronics, beauty, fashion, and more. Marktgasse 16, 4051.
Announced for the first time in this article are the details of the alegria Christmas Sale!
