Hi all! Today I want to show you a nice christmas market just around the corner of Beuteltiere-shop: The “Lucia-Weihnachtsmarkt” at Kulturbrauerei Berlin. Kulturbrauerei itself is a big areal where a lot of cultural events are taking place. Its one of the few well-preserved monuments of industrial architecture from the end of the 19th Berlin Century. First it was a brewery and existed like this till 1967 after a longer “sleeping beauty”-period the richly decorated and ornate industrial-buildings were restored and a lot of creative business moved in. Especially the two big courts are the perfect surrounding for a warm and cosy christmas market in the middle of a flowering city. If you stay in Berlin these days you should go there once, it’s really nice. The opening hours are: Mo – Fr 15 to 22 and Sa – So 13 to 22 o’clock.

Sunday is not a working day. That’s why I didn’t spend my time on our business-plan today, but I spent a wonderful afternoon with Udo at Trendmafia in Berlin-Friedrichshain, Frankfurter Allee 21a-23a. in a former bank.That’s why there are funny safes in the basement.
Trendmafia is a kind of Christmas market for designer goods with lots of small booths with peoples creative work. Most of the products sold there are self-made and you can get in direct contact with the designers. It remembers me of Dawanda in real life.
Find here some of the creative people selling there:
Mitzebra: a girl making nice illustrations and small textile pets
Carmen Täuber: jewelery
Van Bardonitz: high fashion and more
Sonntag Berlin: printed T-Shirts
Shneiderman: lovely obi-belts and really fun hood-scarfs by Miriam Schneiderman (see a pic of Mariams stand with her wearing one of her hood-scarfs.
And there was the ice designer Horst Birekoven who made a famous looking ice sculpture in front of the building. You know what it is? It’s an audio cassette and you can find some small packages of jewelery in the ice block if you look closer.
And the best is: I even found a Christmas gift for a friend. But psst…
Don’t be sad if you have missed Trendmafia this time. The Trendmafia market doesn’t only take place during Christmastime. Check the Trendmafia website for more dates.
