Mummy, can I keep this little basket, pleeeeaaaaase! .... This is what I wore to the flea market I found the wickerpurse ... 50s-60s Dirndl dress: eBay // vintage belt: flea market // shoes: Primark // 50s basket: flea marketm, somewhere on the outskirts of Berlin // bakelite bangles: green:Ebay, yellow: flea market // 50s head scarf: eBay (came with a dress)
I found this wonderful 50s basket on last Sunday's flea market. The husband took me to a huge market on the outskirts of Berlin. He found a lot, I didn't find anything till the last two rows of the market ... I ended up buying a few vintage purses and another vintage suitcase to store things in ... after carrying my finds home ... hehehe.
But, as I have too many baskets/wicker purses/ raffia purses, so I decided to let this little cutie go. Even if it deeply hurts my basket obsessed heart!!!! If you are interested in giving it a vintage loving home, you might find the basket soon on GoodyGoodyBerlin on Etsy!

This what I wore on wednesday to pick up my results from the doctor ... 50s linen blouse: vintage yard sale // late 40s rayon skirt: Made In Berlin Store // belt: Primark // clogs: Swedish Hasbeens (got them on SALE) // 60s straw purse with fringe decoration: Pick&Weight Store Berlin ...
Everything in this outfit is brand new to me, except the yellow blouse ... As I was not able to go to the USA on vacation due to my 6-weeks-appendix-horror-story ... As soon as I was told by the doctors to get out of bed and move, I went vintage shopping. I really found some nice things on Bargain Tuesday at Made In Berlin Shop and it's new brother Pick & Weight, just down on Alte Schönhauser Strasse. The Swedish Hasbeen's I got at one of the hipster shops on Sale for 50% off.
Maybe I'm not in the States to do some shopping - but sometimes the city you live in surprises you with a basket full of vintage in every fruity summer colour you can think of ...

I haven't posted a IFTP-post for a while now. Not that I ran out of vintage magazines, I just didn't have the time to take pictures and edit photos. As my summer travelling plans are now cancelled due to my surgery from last week ... I finally have plenty of time to work on way back planned and then abandoned posts like these.
Luckily I feel better everyday now and I feel strong enough to do a stroll to the kitchen on my own, warm some food and finish some computer work. Yeah! Tomorrow the doc will take out the stitches of my belly ... Blahblahblah. Hopefully I will be back on my feet soon.
I don't have many informations about the pictures from the fraction of a magazine I post today. It's a more strange, uncomfortable and a bit embarrassing story behind it. This fraction was part of a collection of knitting patterns from 1935 up to the early 60s. My American husband found those on a local flea market. Doesn't sound so special so far ... But the patterns and magazine parts were collected in a official office folder from the nazi era, with the topic -translated into English- saying: Public Supply. He bought it for 1€, because he wanted me to get the old patterns and he was so curious about the folder itself, as he is not good in speaking German, especially reading old German letters, he didn't know what he brought home.
But the crazy thing about it, is the actual person who stored patterns in this folder from probably the mid 30s up to the end of her life ... not caring about the actual history of this folder she kept her knitting inspirations in. Brrrrrhhh, shivers are running down my back.
We don't know anything about the history of this folder and we don't know what to do with it. We don't like to sell it, we don't want to keep it in our household and we don't want to through it away, because it's a piece of history ... The patterns are sitting with my other vintage fashion magazines and the folder is burried in the back of a cupboard.
The pictures out of this late 40s (maybe up to the earliest 50s) magazine are still absolutely adorable.
