Victorian Christmas Market

Last weekend me and Rai visited the great Victorian Christmas Market in Hamburg.


It was located in the halls of an Art Nouveau hotel and at the entry was arranged this typical english telephone box. I loved these boxes since my first visit in England.
Thanks to Neko for this picture^^.

The Sherlock Holmes Museum

Time for another time travel.

Second Hand- and Charity-Shops

Today I want to report about a concept I really appreciate: The second hand- and charity shops.
I prefer much more to go “Treasure Hunting” in these kind of shops than buying things in regular shops that 20 other people on the street also have in their room or closet. Furthermore it´s more sustainable eco-friendly to buy second hand, and in charity shops the money you spend there will be used for beneficial functions.

My three favorite shops that kind are Oxfam, Humana and Kleidermarkt.

For second hand shopping it´s worth to spend a bit more time. Then you can find really hidden treasures 🙂

Here are some of my “Booties” I found at my wanderings:

A very nice straw hat I found at Oxfam. I trimed it a bit with Deco-flowers, feathers and ribbons.

Here´s a spring-outfit I coordinated with the hat. The blouse and the bolero at the picture are also 2nd hand.
