"Holy Shit Shopping" likely to prove unusual shopping spree

Germany's biggest art and design market hits Hamburg's fairgrounds

The “Holy Shit Shopping” tour stops off in Hamburg’s fairgrounds (Hall B1) from December 9-10, 2017 after earlier events in Cologne and Stuttgart with hundreds of young designers, products on offer and enthusiastic customers.

Different shopping experience

Designers will present lifestyle products including fashion, jewellery, furniture, art, photography, literature and specialty foods at the fair. The online shop will feature a selection of limited products chosen exclusively by the “Holy Shit Shopping” team. DJs will be playing their favourite hits and stirring up up the atmosphere for gift seekers. The exhibitors consist of over 320 international designers from smaller production companies in the creative scene. Several bars and lounges will also offer mulled wine and other drinks in a festive atmosphere.

Hamburg – northern host

The organisers, Ulrike Kabyl and Harriet Udroiu staged the first “Holy Shit Shopping” in Berlin’s legendary Café Moskau in 2004, which attracted 50 exhibitors and 3,000 visitors. The hit event doubled visitor numbers in 2005 and spread to Hamburg in 2006. Encouraged by the appeal in the creative sector, the event spread to Stuttgart and Cologne later.

Christmas networking

“Holy Shit Shopping” gives gallerists and artists, designers and shop managers a chance to meet each other. Good ideas need sales channels and the fair gives young designers a chance to meet the public. Visitors have an opportunity to purchase works by young designers and lesser-known artists and to support newcomers to the creative scene. The synergies of design, art, music, drink and food transform unusual locations into gigantic pop-up design emporiums. The Holy Shit Shopping tour travels to Berlin from December 16-17, 2017.
