last Sunday we had our second Travelettes Flea Market at Dr Pong, a lovely bar on Eberswalder Straße in Berlin. Just like the first market, back in July, it was a great success and we’d like to thank everyone who came out despite the icy cold. Many lovely clothes, accessories and shoes have changed ownership (needless to say that there was a lot of shopping and selling among the salesgirls) and all of us were able to fill our christmas stockings with some holiday cash to spend on presents and the like.
Another purpose of the market was to raise a little money for charity for which all of the girls sold an international christmas specialty which they baked themselves. With this, we are very happy to report that we could gather €100 which went to the Berliner Tafel, an organisation in Berlin brings Christmas presents to children in need who would not otherwise receive any gifts.
I also made a little video to give you some impressions of our Christmas market.
The next Travelettes Flea Market will be back in Spring when you have the chance to raise cash again for your upcoming holidays.
By the way:
If you, too, would like to contribute to kids in need having a happy christmas, you can donate any amount of money to the Berliner Tafel bank account (Berliner Volksbank, Konto-Nr. 5457793008, BLZ 10090000).There is no better time than Christmas to give something back.
