“We have been coming to the Bazaar for 43 years and are very satisfied as always. This year was a little quieter, but this gave it a very nice, cozy and family atmosphere. Many regular customers await us every year at Bazaar Berlin. Our products are very well received precisely because many people do yoga and meditate. The sales are good as usual.” Amer Lal Shrestha, Superior Art & Handicrafts, Nepal.
“I didn’t think my products would be so well received. At first, I was afraid that I would hardly sell anything, as my silk products could be too expensive for many. I have had very good sales and extraordinarily great experiences. Since I want to establish myself on the German market, the Bazaar is a good chance to see if this step is worthwhile for me. An elderly lady bought a product from me and even came back the next day to buy even more. I’m thrilled.” Priyanka Kaushik, Noi Mohi, India.
While the business was a little quieter on the first days of the fair, our expectations were met on Saturday.

We had nice encounters and a great time and would like to come back.” Max Richter, Pi Tea, Germany.
“We want to establish ourselves on the European market and had researched suitable trade fairs. In the end, we chose the Bazaar Berlin and we are very happy about that. We particularly like our stand in the palace, this hall is the most beautiful place for us and our products. Business went better at the weekend than on the first and second day.” Malak Morsy, Up-Fuse, Egypt.
“We liked it very much from day one, because right at the beginning our stand was well attended. Our expectations were not so high because we thought people wanted to save money. I am positively surprised that they are very eager to buy. The bestseller this year are the cooking aprons, they are almost all sold out. The bazaar is also worthwhile for us to network, it is a reunion with other exhibitors.” Fani Bouzinou, Meeting Bismarck e.V., Ghana.
