The Stijl Markt is coming back to town. Out of all of the market events that take place on the Praterinsel in Lehel, this one is my fave.
I’ve gotten a lot of cool things there over the years.
Like, this cool light bulb lamp sold to me by two charming young fellows from Licht Liebe. It had a super neat-o bulb in it before my toddler knocked it over. (I now see after looking for the link to their site, that I can buy a new light bulb there too.) :This pillow from Hook & Eye, which now resides on a little vintage sofa in said toddlers room:This super warm, gigantic scarf from slow fashion Berlin-based label WiDDA. It really helped that it was a coooold fall day when we went. I bought it after looking it over for about one nano-second. No regrets, it’s been great this winter:The cool weather also contributed to my purchase of this yummy cinnamon liqueur from Berlin outfit Freytag which specializes in liquers from plants:What I like most about the event is it’s focus on design and indie-businesses. The emphasis is on design but in a way that is accessible. It’s not one 4,000 Euro chair after another.
The DeStijl markt will be in Munich again this spring from March 9-10. A word of warning: It gets really crowded so consider yourself warned!
P.S. There are usually some good food trucks parked in the Hof too.
