Kriekebiche puts the spotlight on local creators and craftsmen, a space is also dedicated for creative and thematic workshops
Kriekebiche is the contraction of two words:
KIEKEBICHE: having 'kiekebiches' is a Brussels expression which means getting goosebumps.
KRIEK: these are the Schaerbeek cherries, which were used for the basic recipe of the famous beer “Kriek”
At Kriekebiche you will find nice little gifts for yourself or someone else, zero waste items, jewellery, stationery, food products, all local and sustainable and made with passion.
Aurélie opened her shop three weeks before the start of the lockdown, a webshop was set up during this period ;-)
But who is Aurélie?
I am 38 years old and I am a speech therapist by training, I worked as an independent speech therapist in an office and as an employee in a nursing home for ten years. I discovered sewing when my son was born and it quickly became a passion. I launched my brand of zero waste textile creations "Lilie dans les étoiles" a few years ago in parallel with my already busy professional life and it has become my full-time activity almost a year ago. In December the opportunity to rent a commercial space presented itself to me and I, therefore, decided to set up my workshop there and at the same time make it a shop in order to promote local know-how and craftsmanship. Challenges never scare me and I always have 1030 projects in mind!
Our merchants keep Schaerbeek alive. In recent years, more and more pleasant shops have sprung up in our municipality. These shops have contributed to the positive image of Schaerbeek and make life easier and more pleasant for us. Our local shopkeepers and craftsmen are not having an easy time during this COVID-19 period and many need our support. Many of them are trying to communicate, but this communication gets lost very quickly on social networks and it is not easy to make a website known.
For this reason, many citizens have decided to support our merchants with this website.
On this site you will soon find all useful information about local shops, restaurants, bars and craftsmen in Schaerbeek: opening hours during the confinement period, how to contact them, the menus of restaurants that offer a take away service, how to support our nice bars (which cannot open) etc.For this reason, several citizens have decided to support our merchants with this websites.
