The Comptoir des Talents is located in the heart of many local shops renowned for the quality of their products and services.
For each object sold, 30% of the proceeds are donated to a transparent charity that helps people in need.
A unique concept that combines the pleasure of offering sustainable objects, (re) visiting local businesses and discovering authentic craftsmanship.
Le Comptoir des Talents was designed by Pascale Gonda, a current resident of the Helmet district of Schaerbeek and owner of a bed and breakfast for many years. In 2018, after having long coordinated a foundation in the philanthropy sector, Pascale decided to start her own business with the desire to breathe new life into her retail district. Passionate about traditional trades and models of local and solidarity economy, she conducted a test of her concept by creating a micro store within a local business and administered a survey of residents, traders, and artisans of the neighborhood. Those surveyed revealed a shared desire for a diversified supply of quality products, the valorization of know-how artisans, user-friendliness, and support for sustainable and responsible approaches.
As a result of these strong desires, Le Comptoir des Talents debuted in early 2019 with the ambition to contribute to the development of a local economy that values and encourages the know-how of professional artisans.
