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?
