StrickenBar + Etsy ::: Designer + Fleamarket

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on August 31, 2010

The StrickenBar got together with Etsy Germany for an afternoon of vintage, unique designer sales and the Stricken Terrasse, which is of growing popularity. Friends of mine and myself had our own fleamarket corner right on Jacki Terrasse‘s dancefloor which we had decorated in the style of the coziest Laundromat we wish it existed. Loads of clothes, accessories, a clotheshorse, nailpolish, fashion magazines and a vintage issue of a German nude magazine were our setting. (Notice the headline: My wedding night with the crazy guy from Sydney – how “wild” that must have been in 1968.)

Many creative labels sold the most unique items Berlin had to offer that Saturday afternoon. One of my favorites was the label “PIMP” which doesn’t only create the craziest circus-like outfits ever but is also the creator of the rising star in Berlin’s hipster bag scene: the “ALDI GAGA” bag. Our neighborstand really got my heart pumping because the necklaces by “forkit!” were an excentric yet absolutely wearable mixture of wildly patterned leather and filigree metalls and Oh lala Tartes shop took good care of us while Jacki’s bar provided anisdrinks, beer and lemonade. My personal highlight was yet the Etsy photobooth which was in the manner of one of these quick taking photo cabins standing at airports or streets but Etsy’s laser light background was circa 1989 and original clothing and accessories provided 30 seconds of fun until the session was over – did I mention it was for free?!!! Yes, I went back about 3 times –  and the photostrips will be locked forever in the privacy of my home – what better memory is there for great afternoon with your friends?

      Plans are being made for a second event in October – but no fix date yet.
