If not anything I am a window shopper. Sometimes when I find a good deal I go for it, but that’s not always the case. So when I’m abroad, I make time to wonder around the most stylish (or not so stylish but with great deals) stores. This time I started with Kaufhof.
Kaufhof is a store that sells both home related stuff and clothing. I went straight to the top floor (and the floor beneath it) for the home related stuff. Once upon a time, I spent a good deal of money there to get my favorite bedding and some linens and some cooking ware and some serving ware. There were sales, right? So don’t judge! This time I got nothing. Boo! Although I was tempted to buy myself another duvet cover. This one to be exact.
But the price tag was way more than I was ever willing to spend on bedding, so I left empty-handed.
Next in line was Kustermann.
Three floors, too many stuff to get through all of them and some price tags that beg me to go back and buy colorful glass vases. Mind you, if I had a way to safely get them home, I would have bought at least three of these beauties.
Sure thing you would find something your style, cause there were too many of these in every color and every shape.
And that was the first floor. The second floor had more expensive things but equally stylish. Case in point this very clever bench.
It either seats tree people or two people with their drinks. Is it me or is this thing very romantic for my porch? The price was just over 200 euros, so it’s not that expensive, but not too cheap either. (Stick to the first one, if you are my boyfriend! Oh, please remember to get me these purple cushions too! Just kidding baby! The bench alone will be awesome!)
While in there, I found these interesting felt accessories. No further explanations. Just some interesting felt accessories.
When I got to the third floor I was too hungry to take pics of everything. Surprisingly, it was the only floor I bought some supplies for a future project I have in mind.
After some quick fueling at Victualenmarkt (read this post for further information on that!) I was back on track. Manufactum was the name of the game. There were many designers represented in this place. To be honest it was more than that, cause there was a bakery side by side with a table that featured paint, a booth with wooden toys side by side with a booth with shoes and then some clothes and some furniture. It was kind of everything in one space!
Furniture.. (I loved this chair, as for the price tag not so much.)
Garden tools and eco-friendly cleaning supplies (on the back)..
Afterwards, I went to Muji (say it the French way!). I’ve been there way too many times for a shop that doesn’t exist in Greece, as in more than 20 times. I’m addicted.
And yes, I couldn’t resist buying something. What? I needed that sleeping mask and pillow!
Lastly, I visited Magazin, a place with famous designer chairs, lights etc. Not things I would buy, but I always enjoy going through them.
So that’s it as far as home related window shopping is concerned. There may or may not be more on the days to follow.
Now tell me. Do you ever restrict yourself in window shopping or do you end up buying that overpriced blouse/light/shoe you saw? As you can see I am definitely a fan of just watching no buying, everywhere but Muji (French accent please!).
