Art/craft fair in the St Gallen/Zurich area?

Hi there, Ive had a lot of time on my hands the last few months without a job and so Ive gone back to my first love- art. I now have quite a portfolio of good stuff I want to try and sell. Does anyone know of an art/craft fair near St Gallen where I can go along and buy a stand to sell my work at? I live in St Gallen but would be willing to go to Zurich also. We used to have these in New Zealand a lot but I dont know where to begin looking for Switzerland ?

Hi there! Was wondering if you managed to find any of these art/craft fairs as I am also interested in them, but I have no clue if they have them here in Switzerland or not...I know about Art Basel etc...but they are a bit too big for me at the moment . Please let me know if you have any info!

Sorry I found a new job soon after and have left Switzerland but I remember not being able to find any craft markets at all. I'm no help, its best to just ask the tourist info and any craft/art shops you can find. Sorry about that

Re: Art/craft fair in the St Gallen/Zurich area?

google handwerkersmarkt.......

there is one in Luzern, wädenswil, zug, thawil........mostly the verkehrsverein manages it eg. for wädenswil, there is a fruhlungsmärt, http://www.verkehrsvereinwaedenswil....kte/index.html

I did the rapperswil xmas market one year, sold abt 85%, but only after i reduced the prices, i was very dissapointed, it seems, Swiss made doesnt count for much, after paying 280 frnacs for the stall, there wasnt much left

good luck!

Re: Art/craft fair in the St Gallen/Zurich area?

Thank you! I will have a look at the links. I do have an Etsy account but don't use it very much - my products are mainly paintings. Does anybody know of any art markets in Zurich? Thank you either way!
