It’s finally summer and time for the 2nd “Happy POP-UP MARKET” on 06.15.2013 in Leipzig
The first market in 2012, with 20 exhibitors and 800 visitors in two days, was a great success! So, if you missed it, your chance to go has come round again!
The second Happy Pop-Up market will have more than 40 designers and artists selling their products in three currently empty shops in the shopping centre at 13 Lindenau Markt.
This is your chance to find homemade, unique gifts, clothes, accessories and art work, and to meet the artists and designers behind all the creativity. For parents and children there is also a lot to discover and delight – cuddly animals, children’s clothes, little monsters, small, cosy pillows, blankets…
In addition to the market, there will also be several other events going on in and around Lindenau Markt that day. The Lindenau festival will be taking place with readings, a Lindenau quiz, night tours, and many other cultural activities.
So, lots to do at Lindenau market on 15th June!

Well, with a name like that, it must be a fun place to visit – I would imagine!
The first “Happy POP-UP-MARKET” is a market for handmade and fairly made products and takes place on the 6th + 7th of April.
Where: The Venue is the Kulturbar “Froelich & Glorious” in Lindenfels Westflügel eV, which is at 27 Hähnelstr., 04177 Leipzig.
Opening times: Saturday 6th April; 14:00 – 22:00, Sunday 7th April; 04.07.2013, 11:00-15:00.
How much: Admission is free for visitors.
The market sees itself as a forum for shopping for products beyond the usual, bland, everything the same offerings available on most high streets.
It also provides designers, artists, labels and small ‘mini’ companies with an opportunity to present and sell their handmade products. What is being proposed with this new venture has been developed with a lot of passion, attention to detail and great fun.
The product range is wide. In addition to jewelry, bags, fashion and product design there are many individual, small items to be purchased.
It could be the perfect opportunity of getting hold of a unique or special gift … especially as it will be so close to (German) Mother’s Day.
The creators of the products (from Leipzig, Jena, Erfurt and Berlin) will of course be there on the day and will be happy to answer all questions about their products..
Reaching the “Happy POP-UP-MARKET” by public transport is easy: Tram 14: stop K.-Heine-Straße/Merseburger road or tram 3 and bus 74: stop Felsenkeller
There will also be a fine range of cakes and drinks available at the Kulturbar “Froelich & Lovely”.

Michaela Hanke’s flock of sheep.
In the name of New Zealand as guest of honour at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair, the Literaturhaus has organised a bit of a do. The NZ Embassy is also on board and it will be entirely possible to get a decent dose of things Kiwi.
The results of photographer Michaela Hanke’s two-year stay in New Zealand will be on display in her exhibition, New Zealand Impressions.
Poet Uwe Kolbe will present his poems that came out of the New Zealand-German Transit of Venus Poetry Exchange.
Wahl-Neuseeländerin (which means she’s keen on NZ) and author Anke Richter will read from and discuss her latest book ‘Was scheren mich die Schafe?’ (basically how it is to be a Kraut in Kiwi land) with Tino Dallmann.
Acclaimed New Zealand saxophonist and composer Hayden Chisholm will bring us a musical experience we can only be privileged to enjoy.
When: Tuesday 9 October, 7.30 pm
Kuratorium Haus des Buches e.V.
