VOODOO MARKET #5

Posted in DIY by strytllng on October 22, 2011

What time is it? Not Hammer time – it’s way too early for that, even though I am hoping to hear the song later today played by our DJs.

I got up at 6:15am waking up in the coziest bed in Berlin – my own! I have to prepare everything at Chez Jacki before the big rush starts at 9am when the participants will come and decorate their areas.The market opens its doors at 11am. VOODOO APERO will start at 7pm with a VERY nice line up, special drinks so come and say hi!

VOODOO…ENCORE

Posted in Fashion, Video by strytllng on July 15, 2011

August is approaching quickly and the organisation for VOODOO MARKET #4 are heating up these days. I will meet my friend and partner Oryanne this evening to talk about the concept. I cannot believe we are doing this again so quickly?! It is a LOT of work but #3 went so well, we had people asking for #5 already. VOODOO MARKET is about friends and the friends of friends getting together in one place in one afternoon, exchange inspirations or enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. My personal favorite is always to see the exhibitors building up their stands to see their individual decoration and then watch them proudly present their craftmanship. Handmade items are appreciated around the world by people with a growing awareness with an individual sensitivity.

VOODOO MARKET #4

I found this video above showing Terry Cronin from Buffalo Girl, Australia. Beautiful…I’d have her at VOODOO MARKET in a minute if she was from Berlin. Do you know anybody in the Berlin-area doing anything similar?

New Label ::: Sic Gloria

Posted in Fashion by strytllng on June 15, 2011

Sic Gloria directly translates as “To the glory of…” As in, to the glory of always having your sunglasses and being somewhere you will definitely need them. To the glory of long sandy vacations and grassy naps in the park.
Sic Gloria makes unique accessories for your sunglasses by hand from high quality leather in limited editions.

I don’t know what it is like to be 80 years old and have your memories fade away but whenever grandma complains about the misfortune of aging I do relate to her stories of not finding some daily items. Sometimes I wish I could tie them to my body and ALWAYS find them whenever in need. unfortunately that’s not possible and could unbalance certain outfits. But Sic Gloria has figured out a way to NOT lose your sunglasses. The leather bands they make by hand in Berlin are certainly not a new invention but definitely a very aesthetic one.

Sic Gloria will be selling their designs at VOODOO MARKET #3 @ Chez Jacki; 2nd July, 1pm-9pm.

…because I am never personal with you ;-). But this one is a request post. The rapidly growing VOODOO MARKET is looking for vintage sellers for its next edition to join the colorful crowd of young designers, tattoo artists, Lady Gaga’s hair-stylist,… And if you haven’t guessed it by now – VOODOO, that’s my friend Oryanne from the CFT and me. I hope to see you all on the 2nd July on the former playground of the Maria nightclub. We got the market, DJs to get you into the afterhour groove while chilling on the sunny terrasse of  Chez Jacki, a workshop with ETSY and plenty of gifts for everyone while stocks last

NO, THIS IS NOT A FLEAMARKET!!! This is the one and only VOODOO.

“My Precious!”

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on February 17, 2011

After the XYZth rerun of The Lord of the Rings I still don’t understand who is who, in what world the story takes place and is their planet flat? What is it about the ring that makes everybody want it and why can’t they just all be friends and share the burden of carrying it so Elijah Wood doesn’t need to become this insane creep. Having said so, I will also add that the movies urged me to go through my favorite ‘online marketplace’ Etsy, home of the unique and vintage, to find some goodies for myself. Here are some favorites and timeless pieces in my order of preference. I love the agate rings so very much in every single color, that they almost make me forget my tight budget. (The force is strong in this one, but that would be a different epic saga.) One more character to love these statement rings:  these are handmade pieces of craftsmanship and each is one of its kind.
