Tradono Interview

Friday, June 23, 2017

So today I feel a little bit special because Simone, the PR manager at Tradono interviewed me for their blog! You can read it (or not read it) here!




The Startup Tradono is a flea market app which was founded in Denmark 3 years ago and last year was implemented in Switzerland. It was recently even featured on theculturetrip.com as one of 10 Danish startups to watch out for - so if you love flea markets, but also love to stay in bed on Saturday mornings...definitely get this downloaded :D




I've been using it for maybe a year now (maybe you remember I mentioned it in a blog post). Since then Simone and I have been writing back and forth about random things, Tradono and apps and I've been able to share some ideas on what could be improved from a users perspective, etc- and I've really enjoyed the discussion with her. Since I started using it, I've definitely seen many improvements to the app and its functionality - and I'm excited to see what else is in store for it!

 
And obviously, if you're reading this and you're in Switzerland - you can download the Tradono app on google play, join in the fun and then checkout my shop!

    Its time now for the Swiss Design Awards and Art Basel and so I imagine that Basel is the place to be in Switzerland right now. I've been stalking all the insta photos and hoping that my small window of opportunity on thursday brings me there. Here's a designer/brand that I ran across - Ikou Tschüss - that I can't get enough of - scarves, blankets, hats, gloves, dresses, clothes, etc...find more on their instagram (@ikou_tschuss) or website. And my insta where now you can see whats happening on the blog and much more! (@chemistry_ch)

    Slowdown Studio

    Monday, May 29, 2017

    Slowdown Studio has me trippin' with their collaborations with artists to make blankets. Why have I posted twice recently about blankets and its almost summer? Thats how much I love blankets. I hate replacing my down comforter in the summer with the lighter one. What job can I get that is me just laying under blankets all day? Ok anyway...go to slowdownstudio.com for more - and they have free worldwide shipping. I hope that becomes a trend!

    Sam Francis, abstract art...I love his tamer works. I always shy away from loud colors and prints but something about his work caught my eye!

    S.D Evans Quilts

    Tuesday, May 23, 2017



    I wish that I could do a lot of things - and making quilts as beautiful as these is one of them. Season Evans is truly an artist with fabric - and I am truly an artist in wrapping myself up in blankets and chilling - I wouldn't be able to choose. I even have an alert on for when she posts on Instagram because even her photos are lovely to look it (or I'm a stalker, idk). You can see more at her website: sdevans.com

    Every year I'm surprised by how much it rains in Switzerland. Every year. I'm also surprised by how many times I lose my umbrellas...so now I've stockpiled some in the office, at home, hidden in the train station (jk), etc etc. should I add one of these to my collections?!

    In With Mules and an Update

    Monday, May 1, 2017


    I would wear these everyday. even in winter. would that justify the price?!

    aaand...BLOG UPDATE!
     
    We all know it can happen...but I've become totally stuck with blogging and the name 'Village'. It was perfect back in 2009 when I moved to a...well, Village in Switzerland and stepped in to the blogging world. I had so much fun at the beginning and this blog was the cause of meeting so many people and some interesting adventures until I had to take a step back due to full time work, a new human, etc...but now its years later, styles later and most importantly dreams later. I've always dreamt of opening my own store and over the past years I've been brainstorming plus taking care of some baby steps to make the dream more of a reality...and it becomes more and more of that everyday. There's still a lot of behind the scenes work to do but I hope to make it happen! Thats why in the next month or so, this blog will be changing...New URL, new look, same vibe...its also on Instagram now if you want to follow along (see below).
