Kein Durst.

December 16, 2013
Flea-markets are tough to do right. Get there too late in a hungover haze and you’ve missed the best of the bargains; get there too early like an over-eager child who’s just eaten too many E numbers and you’ll not get to fully experience the atmosphere. At last weekend’s Kein Durst (No Thirst) Flohmarkt I made the former mistake but didn’t fare all that badly for it.

Organised by various Berlin-based creative types in an urgent attempt to raise funds for areas plagued by drought in Africa, the market succeeded in collecting over €6,000 for Ärzte ohne Grenzen (Doctors without Boundaries) working in Somalia.
Wood Wood were there, as well as Stil in Berlin, the former offering sleek designs for the Scandi skateboarding types and the latter peddling an impressive collection of fashion books ranging in theme from hairstyles to their very own street-style magazine featuring the city’s best-dressed.

    I am ridiculously jealous that you get to live in Berlin and I'm stuck in Oxford where flea-markets (aka car boot sales) are full of cheap china dolls of dogs and broken lampshades. Berlin, du fehlst mir…..xxDuck

    Ah! Share your thoughts on the book. I love the penguin classics covers, and the matte texture of them is perfect – I'm not a fan of their glossy editions. I'm reading Nancy's Madame du Pompadour biography at the moment. I love her humorous Mitford asides!Jealous you get to breathe the air of Berlin for a substantial amount of time.
