“The 2023 edition of YouNique Fine Craft Art & Design was a real success with the public and the satisfaction of the exhibitors present. This feedback has once again demonstrated how keenly our visitors’ desire is to surround themselves with unique and unrepeatable artefacts and contemporary works of art, not purchased through e-commerce but directly from the hands of those who created them.”
