Yowzer it was cold.
Silly me just took a thin top and light jacket, and it was -13 degrees at night! My bones have only just started to warm up. But I loved Berlin. The main point of my trip was to see the Adamsky Caramia girls Kristin and Monica, check out the show we were doing, and also to check out Berlin. I got the 7a.m. flight out (sooo early I treated myself to BA posh class), dropped off my things at the Ellington and hit the show. I was really impressed. The show looked great, was packed with buyers and full of interesting stuff. Our stand looked best and the girls had displayed my jewellery in a lovely bird cage. It looked great. K and M were lovely, of course. I hung about for a while then headed off to check out the city. Out for supper with the girls, very nice Italian (Monica is from the South of Italy).
Friday off out into the city for a bit more research. KaDeWe and Gallerie Lafayette etc. A bit of sight seeing.
Back to the show for an hour or two, then off to check out some of our stockists; LaLa on Mulackstrasse was a super place near Mitte, then on to Konk which is another beautiful shop in Kleine hamburg strasse. They made a great little shopping guide to the area, so make this your first port of call and it’ll help you navigate this lovely boutiquey area. I bought some bits and bobs for the kids. Check out the amazing in’t veld choccie shop!
By this time I needed some serious warming up so I did it German style with a massive slice of cake.
Really pleased to see some of the lovely shops that stock us in Berlin (stockists info). A quick nip to a couple of museums then off to the airport. Easyjet this time. Back to the real world eh?
