For those of you new to FunkyForty the Favourite shops page is a concept set up last year to showcase special and favourite shops of mine.
Participating stores are updated each month. A monthly summary blog post will also be published highlighting new additions and seasonal highlights of existing stores.
The FunkyForty Favourite shops page came about in an effort to support small businesses during this difficult time. Going forward this will continue to be an easy and interesting way for you to discover new creations and stores.

FunkyForty Favourite Shops March’21 Update
New this month:
So happy to have this fabulous exclusive stationary store now in the FunkyForty Favourite Shop Family. Landolt-Arbenz is an exclusive pen and stationary shop. Unique within the whole of Switzerland. A magical world of writing instruments, leather goods and stationary unfolds before your very eyes as you enter the store.
For many years Landolt-Arbenz used to be down Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse. I always loved walking past and looking at the pretty shop window. A couple of years ago Landolt-Arbenz then moved to being next to the Savoy Hotel, opposite the Gucci store in Zurich.
A clever woman buys her diamonds from Baunat!
Not to worry if you don’t like to buy a diamond purely online. There are a few showrooms for customers. See here for a location near you.
Updates from existing Favourite Shops:
Golden Carrot Shoes
Golden Carrot shoes has the cutest collection of Spring skirts in store right now. Plus still fabulous boots and plenty of colourful sandals – perfect for this Summer which I promise you is going to be a colourful one!
Check out the online store here. (nb: the booties sale is still on!)
If you like art then having one of Caroline Dechamby’s bags is almost a must have as it quite simply is the same as having a piece of art on your arm.
Moving along to my current candy jewellery love. Check out Vanessa Martinelli’s online store for the cutest collection of candy jewellery. Dress them up for out or wear at home. Not to forget her super cute matching silk garments.
Marcus Marienfeld’s glasses that are completely handmade in Switzerland are super special. The one place you can get bespoke glasses especially designed for you!
I am so in love with my carbon glasses – super light and the quality is truly something well above any glasses previously owned. See more information here.
Atelier Avanzar remains one of my Favourite shops. New adorable pastel bags are coming in for Spring. However my current love is the fabulous blue shopper in photo above.
New 15% off with discount code FUNKYFORTYFRIENDS
At a time when there is so much uncertainty around the pandemic and the weather is cold with plenty of grey days it’s more important than ever to help your body with good quality supplements.
Plus use the code:
to receive your first box of 30 sachets for CHF 99 instead of CHF 120
The hot tip with Easter coming up would have to be Suenia Zurich jewellery. Such a cute brand set up by two Spanish sisters. Why not buy a little piece for your bestie instead of chocolate– smile! Check out the online shop here.
I already mentioned in my previous blog post that everyone needs a blue bag – smile. Orlando Maroquinier has the absolute best in Zurich. Not only can you hand pick the leather your bag is made from, you can also have it made especially according to your own design.
I have the above bag in mint blue and love wearing it with winter white. Check out the online store for premed bags too.
That’s it for March. Stay tuned for more and new shops in April!
