Le Petit Marche Lagos, December 2010 ‘Buy Nigerian’ Edition

It has already been a year since began covering Le Petit Marche (LPM)? It is good to see the event clock 1yr + and enjoy continued growth and evolution. This December, LPM runs with a word/phrase we hope becomes as common as “swagger.” The phrase is “Buy Nigerian.” The LPM December issue is themed ‘Buy Nigerian.’ Sounds familiar? That is because you first heard us use that word in introducing Style House Files #Buy Nigerian initiative/campaign.

Check on the event details we received from LPM organizers below. Also check on Haute TV’s video capturing a prior LPM event. Enjoy, go out and support LPM and do #Buy Nigerian.
