Thank you to Jo for bringing this delicious strawberry brooch back from Berlin for me last week. The German capital is a craft paradise, with Prenzlberg, Mitte and Friedrichschain full of lovely little shops packed with handmade things. The work is all a little more kitsch and brightly coloured than Melbourne’s style, but cute and appealing nonetheless. And of course Berlin has flea markets… ah, the flea markets, what delights you harbour. Just round the corner from my sister’s place is the Mauer Park fleamarket, and in Friedrichschain there’s the Boxhagener Platz flea market that’s also good. This website seems to have quite a handy list of Berlin markets if anyone’s planning a holiday. Did I say holiday? I wish.
