  1. I already participated in 2 editions of the boxXshop and I am happy to be a part of the third edition as a collaborator to the Nest Project. I met so many creative and interesting people through the boxXshop that I can recommend it to any starting crafters out there. Join the boxXshop event and you won’t be sorry!

  2. I joined the BoxXshop last year and am very enthousiastic about the concept. I sold quite a lot of work and had a great night with inspirational people. I’m really sorry I can’t make it this year! Good luck on this year’s edition, Changfang and Eliane. Hopefully I’ll be able to join in next year.

  3. I participated in the BoxXshop last year with my brand new jewellery line called El Diamante. It’s been so far the best craft and collaborative event where I’ve participated in Amsterdam, not only I sold very well, but I met really nice people and crafters with great work. I still meet and collaborate with many of them till now. Every participant involved had hand-made work: jewellery, ceramics, textiles, illustration, food, Xmas decorations, and more! I particularly loved the Lloyd Hotel spirit, a perfect host for the BoxXshop. I recommend this event to those creators willing to portray their work on very special event, in my opinion a one-of-a-kind in Amsterdam. I’ll be there in 2013 again with El Diamante and maybe a mini Xmas tree worshop. Join us!

  4. I would have loved to be there this year, but unfortunately can’t be. It was such fun last year and I”m still in touch with all the lovely people I met. Hope to be joining in again next year!

  5. Join this year’s BoxXhop if you are an ambitious, social and fun loving designer (or chef). Lloyd Hotel and BoxXhop complement each other fabulously! Not only do I highly recommend showing your work in a special setting like this, I also encourage you to actively reach out to your audience and fellow BoxXhoppers. When I participated last year I could not have dreamed to meet so many like-minded people! Most of them I still speak regularly, concerning design or just having a nice personal chat. Enriching experiences in many ways!

  6. I like the Boxshop project ever since it was merely a sketch inside of Changfang’s notebook. There are many aspects of the project that appeal to me. It promotes imagination, handwork, craftsmanship, do-it-yourself, low budget, re-use of existing Lloyd Hotel furniture and offline interaction between friends, makers and buyers…
    Independently on what you want to sell it is a rewarding challenge to join the Boxshop..
