We've started running monthly tours to introduce people to local vintage, design and second-hand furniture stores.
We'll meet at the ecochair.ch showroom in the heart of alternative Basel ('Glaibasel'), where you'll munch on a 'gipefli' while you get a brief introduction to some of Switzerland's most well-known furniture companies and designers. We'll then go on a walking tour of the neighbourhood, where you'll meet the owners of several local hidden gems, including a vintage design shop, a brockenhaus, and an antique shop. You'll hear their stories, and learn about their furniture and lighting. You'll also get insider tips from me on what to look for (and what to avoid) when buying 'pre-loved', and where to find the best things. If the weather is good, we'll ride the ferry across the river, and we'll finish off with a cup of coffee and some local Basel traditional cookies, 'läckerli'.
