Damn it, vintage seems so much easier to source in America, and of course in the UK we don't have estate sales open to the public, like they do! Oh I feel another trip is on the cards! I do buy in a few pieces from America but to see what I'm buying in the flesh before it's delivered is always best!
I love Berlin! I love it's history, the people and it's vibrancy. If you have never been to Berlin, then I highly recommend it! The record shops, markets, and vintage and second hand stores are amazing. My favourite district in Berlin, is Kreuzberg - which is pretty bohemian and is the citys Turkish district. I love the live music scene in Berlin, the graffiti which is lovely and really well done, and all over the city. Despite being German, myself - well passport says German, but more accurately I'm mixed British/German heritage I really don't like traditional German food, blah! but it is better than traditional British food!
My next trip to Berlin, I will post a guide on here to vintage shopping and the music scene! Can't wait. but before then I will be going Paris!
If anybody has any market recommendations, vintage, junk and second hand shops, record shops and galleries in Paris, please let me know! Also - my Germans ok - but I speak no French! Ah! For that I may have to rely on my lovely friend Laura! x

Now, music is my first love always was, always has been and I'm a sucker for pretty much everything 1960s, fashion, design, history, music, art, literature - fell in love with that era when I was six years old, listening to my mums records.
I sold my favourite 60s dress in December, trying to be professional and not hold back on all the lovely stock hehee! So on the hunt for some more beauties to fit me.
As of April my work hours will allow me to go here: Brighton Beach as somebody who never failed to miss a Brighton Beach night, I am so looking forward to returning as a regular!
Also just up the road from me is the ultimate mod night Ronnie Londons Groove Lounge!
I cannot wait soooo excited!
I'm a huge garage fan, psych fan and just some good old fashioned 60s pop and rock! I could bore you forever with my record collection and talk of music but will just leave a couple of really cool songs for you to have a look at:

And here's Marianne!

Sherwood get's described, as trendy, bohemian and youthful and it is all those things, and more! I love the little vintage shop, which is a stones throw away from my front door, I love the antique store at the end of the road I live. I also love that Sherwood has some amazing charity shops, a lovely health food shop (yum!) and a great secondhand bookshop (some rare finds!). Sherwood has character :-)
One of the loveliest bars in Sherwood, is called Ripple and it really is the heart of Sherwood, every age and every type of person comes here from the old lady doing her knitting to the artists, the young families and the fashionistas. It's a little hub of creativity, friendliness and yummy fresh, healthy, quality food. Also a vast array of belgian beers (chocolate beer included!) and some posh gin that gets served with cucmber! ;-)
The staff are also amazing, all of them - Oh, I work there too, on the occassional night!
Ripple is closing :-( and I can't begin to explain how much, I will miss the place, the lovely customers and the fantastic staff I have become friends with!
Ripple offically closes it's doors on April 3rd. But if you are local - get down before we say goodbye as the food is soooo good!
I'm going to stuff myself silly with their yummy halloumi skewers and salads during my time off!
Goodbye Ripple Xxxx
On another note, with every door that closes, there are several that open, and everything happens for a reason - blah-de-blah-de-blah and so on. I know everyone that has worked there will do amazingly in their new ventures!
