This time, our #awesomeshop is a treat for shopping in Austria. The extraordinary concept store has not only wonderful products to make you happy, but also unusual and creative events that invite to participate. But see for yourself.

Where exactly is your shop located? What does it look like?

Our shop “Resis kleine Freuden” can be found in the heart of Saalfelden, a city in the province of Salzburg. At our place it is colourful with lots of good vibes, but also elegant and stylish. The Resis offers a wide selection of gift items for children and adults, decorative and lifestyle items, and a small but fine selection of pieces of furniture.

What’s the basic concept of the shop?

The Resis is not just an ordinary store, but a place where you can feel good and experience great things. That’s why we organize a creative workshop at least once a month (such as watercolour painting, handlettering, stamping cards, etc.). In addition, we always come up with very special events for our customers. At the beginning of August, for example, the first scavenger hunt will take place at Resis.

However, topics such as sustainability, animal and environmental protection and fair production are also very important to us. We check exactly how, where and by whom the goods are made which we select for our concept store. Precisely for this reason, we also give priority to products from Austria and neighbouring countries. Generally we find a lot of small labels and start-ups from Austria and Germany, who often produce their hancrafted products with passion.

In your opinion, how does your shop fit with Pickmotion and the Pickmotion products? How did you become aware of Pickmotion?

We are innovative, always looking for new trends and real Instagram fanatics. A large part of the wonderful, small brands that we now sell in the store, we have discovered on social media. We want to bring a smile to the people who enter our shop and make their day a little bit more beautiful. This is exactly what the cards and magnets from Pickmotion do – we observe this every day. We discovered the Pickmotion products in a bookstore in Salzburg and were immediately impressed by your concept.

What’s special about your shop? How do you use the advantage of being a steady retailer? How do you differentiate yourself from other shops and/or webshops?

Personally, I love the stationary retail business, because for me as the owner of a shop, it offers innumerable possibilities to present the products differently and to combine them with each other. Our customers can touch all the products before they buy them, many things can be tested (such as our natural cosmetics products) and our sweet treats are also given regularly for tasting. In addition to the personal care of the customers, this is an experience that you will not find in online shops. Special at our shop is also that with us simply nothing is common. The more extraordinary, the better – not only for our products, but also for our promotional materials and interior design.

What do you like most about Pickmotion? Which products are your favourites?

There is actually no product from Pickmotion that we do not like. For every occasion, there is a matching motif or a matching saying. The two displays with the Pickmotion cards that adorn our store entrance, are always an absolute hot spot for the customers. There is laughter, the sayings are read aloud and everyone finds their own personal favourite card. The mini-picks also fit perfectly on every package that we pack on request for our customers – so the gifts already give joy when just watching.

So, if you are in Salzburg area or Berchtesgaden National Park, you should definitely visit this wonderful shop to find extraordinary gifts for yourself or your loved ones, or just to join one of the many events or workshops.
