When I was staying in Frankfurt for my Diplomarbeit, I used to frequented the Frankfurt's flea market a lot. I was in a way one of the regulars. There are 2 major flea markets in Frankfurt and both are held on Saturdays. There is one which near to my rented house; Frankfurt Hoechst and another one is near to the Rhein(?) river, and is smack in the middle of Frankfurt's old town.
I'm an avid vintage lover. Apart from flea market, thrift shop and Ebay are the best next thing to find these hidden treasures. The smell of thrifted and vintage clothes might be appalling to some but I couldn't care less. Vintage pieces are rare and you won't be caught dead wearing the same top with 5 other different people. If you are an individualist like me, you should have known better.
I want to share some of the photos that (H and) I took during one of my visits. H visited me in Frankfurt on that particular weekend and I just had to tag him along!
|Yours truly, busy scouting and eye-ing things|
I bought Vogue Guide to Cosmetic and Beauty book for a mere 8Euro here. I also got myself an Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll for 4Euro, but not here. Old English books are hard to find, so whenever I saw one, I just had to buy.
|Jackets, blazers and coats. And yes, they are different.|
I would love to upload more photos but my internet connection is being a pain in the ass right now and I just don't have the patience to wait.
Next, I would love to share some of vintage items that I had bought (and re-sell) over the years.
