My dearest followers. Aimee here with another installment from our trip, I hope you're not sick of it yet! I am lucky enough to write about day 4, which we have all decided was the best day! On this day we decided to go to Juni Flohmarkt and boating!
You may have read in earlier posts that we're obsessed with avocado on toast for breakfast. Mmmm. Of course my breakfast comes with a cuppa tea. I brought those tea bags all the way from old blighty much to Harriett and Jess's dismay!
Here we are in Juni Flohmarkt. This is one of many flea markets in Berlin, but one of the only Saturday markets. We didn't buy too much from this market as its rather expensive. People that I've spoken to say its one of the touristy markets.
We took these pictures for Solanah as they're just like paintings she's made and she loves cats!
I was so excited to see all this old bakelite on their original stands. Unfortunately the bangles were very expensive (100euro +), but they were lovely to look at.
A Victorian toy cat made with real cat hair. It also made a little miowing sound!
'Where are the bargains?!'
Then we headed off to the boating place in Tiergarten which also had a beer garden.
Here's me and Jess with the vintage smut we bought. I scanned mine and blogged about it. You can see that here.
Me and Jess got a huge delicious pizza between us. YUM.
Personally I think Frankenstein monster posers are hilarious when wearing wide shouldered 40's jackets!
Unfortunately when we were eating it started to rain and we thought our boating dreams were over. Luckily the rain stopped but the lady who takes the fee for the boats disappeared into thin air.
So we decided to commandeer the boat! Berlin Pirates ahoy! This is Beau, our host and Anna's lovely husband.
So I was pretty terrified of falling in at first. But after a while I even mastered up the courage to have a go at rowing. Yes that's right, me, from Hackney, rowing!
Gorgeous Jess is wearing her 30's hat from ebay, my 50's blouse from ebay, topshop skirt and 20's shoes.
Pretty little Harriett is wearing a 1930's child's P.E. uniform which looks lovely as a playsuit.
Here I am in my late 40's dress which I bought from Spitalfields antique market.
Later in the evening we went downtown with Anna, Beau and their lovely friends. We wore our poshest 30's frocks but we didn't stay late and forgot to take photos. Doh! The last installment of our trip will be guest written by Jess. So stay tuned!
Love Aimee xx
