The Tierlantyn’kies Kuier en KoopFees is an exciting new “pop-up” market in Pretoria, featuring unique, locally made products.
Tierlantyn’kies is the brainchild of three friends, Lorette, Elmien and Ronel, who recognised the need for a space where artists and entrepreneurs could sell their handcrafted products to the public, without the overheads of a retail outlet.
At The Workspace, we’re delighted to support Tierlantyn’kies because they’re just as excited about entrepreneurs as we are. The market offers a platform where passionate people can grow new businesses, in a supportive and relaxed environment.
Lorette, Elmien and Ronel also offer guidance with product development and marketing.
The first Tierlantyn’kies
The first Tierlantyn’kies market, held for five days in October, was a huge success, with 68 exhibitors offering everything from jewellery, clothing and décor items to gifts, toys and an assortment of tempting homemade treats and deli goods.
We’re already looking forward to the next Tierlantyn’kies!
