I was overjoyed when I came across this bag at the Arkon Platz flea market in Berlin. "That bag was actually made as a satchel for young schoolgirls, maybe four years of age" the seller tells me with a heavy accent, "I assure you it has hardly ever been used, and that is quite astonishing indeed, it is about 40 years old - take a look". He knew what he talked about. The bag had no signs of being used at all.
As I slipped it over my shoulder yesterday my mother commented on how it matched my shoes perfectly, "I never thought of that" she mumbled. " I did" I grinned back, "of course you did" she answered closing the door behind her.
I just came home from a long weekend of 30 degrees Celsius in a great city. Although I have to confess that the heat did get to me, it was an incredible trip and only resulted in two new hats! I am absolutely intrigued with recent history and it was a great experience to visit the museums and historical places of Berlin. I only wish that the people of our world would learn from their mistakes and start treating each other with respect and love instead of repeating the mistakes again and again .
The T-shirt is from a local designer who's name that just slipped my mind, stay tuned for the update!
