Peruse the busy shelves of this shop, and you are certain to find everything from antique clocks, traditional Swiss cowbells and embroidered hats, to authentic Swiss knives, fabrics and sännechutte, or the quintessential rural Swiss shirt.
Marktlücke presents quirky handy-crafts from its riverside location, offering a contemporary take on accessories and decor that can brighten up any look. Marktlücke hires long-term unemployed women to operate their shop's sales, stocking and creation efforts. The wares at this eclectic shop are not only incredibly innovative, but are made using upcycled materials that transform unused goods into home decor treasures. Stools are fitted with old olive cans to create a unique bit of storage while chandeliers are made from bike cogs and polished glass. The perfect place to find a signature stylistic treasure, Marktlücke earns major points for its environmental sustainability, community outreach and, of course, ultra-trendy accents.
