Berlin hasn’t disappointed, and thanks for your tips! We visited the Turkish Market in Maybachufer on a bitterly cold Friday morning. There’s a plethora of fabric stalls and a lot of jersey if jersey is your thing. I’m not sure I saw anything that particularly blew my mind, but that’s cool. I bought some fleece backed jersey, which was the fabric buying equivalent of going to the supermarket hungry. I’m cold. Must. Buy. Warm Fabric.
After, we retired to the covered Markthalle Neun for some warmth and a glass of champagne. The venue is a cross between Spitalfields and Borough market, but on a smaller (and arguably more pleasant) scale.
I don’t know if I’ll squeeze in any more fabric shopping, though Frau Tulpe and Stoff & Stil have been recommended. Maybe I’ll find the button shop that’s near where we are staying. For a really comprehensive set of recommendations, you should definitely read the comments on my blog post here.
For now, the sun is out and we’re off to the Bauhaus Museum. I wonder when I should tell my companion about their textile design exhibition…
I stayed in the Kreuzberg area of Berlin. Here are my recommended eateries:
