Vintage Shopping In Berlin // Part I

hey, dear friends out there ... in the past months i was asked by several people to do a little vintage shopping guide about berlin. today i start with the first two shops ...

Veist Kleidergeschichten is one of my favourite vintage shops here in berlin, neukoelln. veist is not just about midcentury fashion, you might find there mostly, what i call 'in fashion' vintage (boheme, 80s, 90s, designer pieces, ...) and just a little mid century pieces once in a while ... every single piece is hand picked by the wonderful and awsome ladies working there. they really have a special eye for style and design, wonderful fabrics like silk and cashmere ... some of the clothes are telling their little story from the past on the prize tag. don't we all want to know where our vintage clothes come from?
veist is a consignement shop ... and i love to bring clothes there to sell. so maybe you will find one of your favourite pieces out of my collection there ...
all in all it's always a big fun to pop by this shop, the ladies of veist are smart, fun and ever so lovely - even if they are busy as hell!

 the little fake fur jacket from the 50s is the first piece i ever purchased at veist, the red felt hat is the latest - but won't be the last for sure.

those pants belong to one of my best vintage buys ever: my highly beloved vintage sailor suit made from silk and crepe. from whatever era but found at veist!

Schwarze Truhe

some of you might know schwarze truhe as an online shop from ebay ... i have to be true, i was never that much into the pieces they have online but i really like to recommend the shop as a shop. in 2012 schwarze truhe was still in their old location, a tiny place in berlin alt-treptow filled with treasures from all around the midcentury. it was so full, that it was hard to go through the racks ... but i found my first 40s dress back then (see below). this year they moved a house to the right, into a bigger and brighter place. now you have enough space to go through the 40s and 50s rail, the pre 40s rail, the 60s and 70s section  - or to get your hands on one of the retro dresses from lindy bop  ...

floral 40s dress found in 2012 at schwarze truhe ...

 found this 50s-60s number this summer at schwarze truhe. big love - even if i look a little skepitcal in this picture!

stay tuned ... for part II  - and more shops

That does look a lovely shop, I love that they've written the story behind the item on the price tag. I love telling my customers about the previous owner if I know its provenance. xxx

Das wird sicherlich irgendwann nützlich sein, vielen Dank dafür :)

How refreshingly fantastic that you have shops in Berlin that are devoted to mid-century vintage offerings. 80s/90s/newer pieces have their place in the fashion world, sure, but for those of us who live for the 30s-50s, finding a store like that feels like we've won the shopping jackpot!
