Danish Church held Successful Spring Market

The Danish Seamen’s Church in Hong Kong organized their annual Spring Market in Mariners’ Club, Tsim Sha Tsui on Saturday 12th of May.

The church invited companies and organizations, including Danish Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong, to come and set up their own booth, where the invited companies could show of new products, samples and other collections that the Danish community and other visitors would be interested in.

“It is a great opportunity for you to show your company and its products,” writes the Danish church.

Around 200 people visited the market and 20 booths were set up this day.

People started shopping as soon as the door opened. There were products like Danish candy, cream from Beaute Pacifique, jewelries and sunglasses from Skagen Design, bowls and vases from Gazzel, jewelries from Pilgrim and many more.

There were also some activities for the kids. Tombola for children and the lucky ones went home with water guns, micro scooter, dolls and teddy bears. While the kids were having fun, the adults struggled with their own tombola. Instead of being excited over dolls and teddy bears the adults tried their best to win big prizes like watches, Danish snaps and other big gifts.

It was a day where people could meet old friends as well as welcoming new arriving Danes in the community.

That day, the Spring Market closed at 4 pm and it was time to evaluate the earnings. Revenue of goods and merchandises the companies were able to contribute during the event was shared 50/50 between the companies and the church. The church received 50.000 HKD, quite a profit.

“It is definitely an event to repeat next year,” writes the church.
