A day in Berlin.

Hey, happy weekend!! :) Those of you who follow me on Facebook may have already read that I went on a Berlin shopping tour on Friday. :) It was a perfect way to spent the afternoon and I visited several shops. It was the first time that I visited Volksfaden, a totally new fabric store in Berlin-Schöneberg. They have lots of pretty fabric from American fabric designers like Michael Miller, Robert Kaufmann and Amy Butler and the shop owner is a lady from NYC. :) There I bought the new moustache fabric and the one with the pretty, floral pattern. Afterwards, I drove to Kreuzberg to go to a large vintage store. On my way there, I passed another second hand shop and spontaneously decided to go inside. Then it was love at first sight: I saw the prettiest vintage travel bag I've ever seen! :) It's condition is awesome, I simply love the color and it was a total bargain, I only had to pay 25€ for it and it looks sooooo good! A few seams have to be renewed, but that won't be a problem. :) I cleaned it yesterday evening and I'm soo in love with it. :) How do you like it? Can't wait for my next weekend trip to use it. :)
Afterwards, I went to colors, the huge second hand store in Berlin I wanted to visit. They have tons of vintage clothing. I tried on a few dresses and fell in love with these two ones. There were even a few more that I really liked, but they were too small for me, so I only bought these. Each cost 4€ and I love the floral patterns! :) They are both way too long, but I'll shorten them this weekend and I'm so much looking forward to spring so that I can wear them! :) I do not only love these dressed because they are pretty and I will hardly meet anybody with the same dress, but also because they have a history and because buying second hand includes a sustainable shopping behaviour, this feels good. :)

Finally, after having bought those dresses, I had a break at Milchschaum (= milk froth), a cute café in Berlin-Kreuzberg. They have delicious cakes and chai latte. <3
To end this day, I went to Frau Tulpe, one of my most favourite fabric stores ever. :) I could hardly decide which fabric to buy, but in the end, I chose some jersey fabric with white dots to make a stretch skirt, and I bought some pretty apple fabric. :)

I wish you a lovely weekend, I'm gonna spend mine at home, so much work to do, so many projects waiting for me. :) What are your plans?


  1. oh richtig schöne dinge, die du dir da ergattert hast :) die knöpfe sind wundervoll!

  2. aww, der moustache stoff ist ja der hammer.. echt tolle teilchen haste dir da gekauft ~NEID!

  3. Die Tasche ist wirklich ein Knaller, die hätte ich auch genommen. Scheint mir auch die perfekte Sporttaschengröße zu sein!
    Die Stoffe gefallen mir auch. Lustig, wenn man die Kissen, die Kleider und deine neuen Stoffe sieht, erkennt man so einen richtigen "Stoff-Stil" bei dir. War mir auch schon in deinem Shop aufgefallen.

  4. Schöne Sachen hast du dir ausgesucht, vor allem der herzige Apfelstoff ist super!
    Schönen Sonntag und liebe Grüße, Katinka

  5. ich finde den Schnurrbartstoff einfach super und bin ein bisschen neidisch ;)

  6. Those fabrics are lovely!

  7. Berlin ist für mich ja leider sooo weit weg, aber bei Frau Tulpe oder Volksfaden muss ich öfter mal online in den Shops stöbern! Seufz! Da könnt ich echt eine Menge einkaufen, wenn ich mir das nur leisten könnte (bzw. so viel Zeit hätte, auch aus allen Stoffen etwas zu nähen....) Deine Beute - auch die Kleider und die tolle Tasche! - find ich jedenfalls fantastisch! Klingt überhaupt nach einem tollen Tag! :-)
