Berlin has many Flea Market son weekends, so after cheap 5 Euro brunch buffet nearby, we checked out the Boxhagener Platz Flea Market. There were many old chairs, picture frames, bikes, lighting, kids toys, German books, records, CDs, bikes and clothes. I didn’t really find anything worthwhile, because most of it looks really used and I didn’t see anything in the modern-feel retro-style I wanted and I wasn’t in the mood for digging in and finding that one diamond in the dirt.
Personally since it was my first Berlin Flea Market and I live quite far away, I have no plans of going back. I would rather explore other Flea Markets for more quality finds. Now I am not saying there aren’t treasures to be found, but this flea market just doesn’t suit my style and the food I had doesn’t compel me to be back either.
If you’d like to see more photos of the kind of stuff they have in this flea market click HERE.
I will be writing about the cupcake shop we had dessert in before heading home. Watch out for it next week.
This Sunday fixture is set up on the pavements circumnavigating Boxhagener Platz: a promenade around the square takes in the full range of kitchenware, door handles, lamps, clocks, second hand books, jumpers and dodgy bike locks. It’s usually very busy, and stalls are manned by gruff old hands; expect to haggle for the best prices.
