Berlin: KaDeWe or Kaufhaus des Westens

KaDeWe is something I stumbled into.  On the first floor, there is very high end jewelry, handbags, and then the usual cosmetics, perfumes, etc. For an example of high-end jewelry, they had Tiffany’s, Chanel, etc.

It reminded me a bit of Bloomingdales in NYC. It did not just sell clothes, but many other things:

I walked through rows and rows of beautiful, incredibly expensive foods.

One of my favorite sections in a really nice department store is their socks and tights section.

Sock heaven!  If I could afford these socks, I would totally wear them.


I accidentally stumbled into the childrens section.  Below are some normal preppy clothes, but for little boys.  The photo does not show it well because it is really hard to see the scaling.

This is a little boys mannequin wearing the most precious clothes.  I do not think I have seen a sports coat that small.

I would recommend visiting it if you want to see a very high-end department store.  The best part, is the restaurant and the Gourmet Level, but that is a separate post.

York: The Afternoon: Exploring the Shops

York is fabulous.  There were so many unique and creative shops.  A lot of these shops were located in “The Shambles,” an area that looked like something out of a Harry Potter movie.  The houses looked like they were going to spill into the streets!

 

Entering The Shambles

 

Actually in the Shambles

 

 

There were so many little tea shops, craft shops, just see for yourself!

 

This store was styled in the way that my friend envision her house would be styled in.  It was a beautiful hodgepodge of precious and colorful items.

 

See, she is in heaven!

This store even had the table made up for a mix-n-match china tea party!

 

 

 

 

Everything was rustic chic.  It looked like a really cute cottage.

 

 

In the front of the store, there was an arts and crafts section that sold ribbons, buttons, fabric, wrapping paper and more!

 

 

My friend again in heaven again!  In this photo she is completely amazed at how awesome the place was!!

 

 

This one below is a part of the store where my friend bought her Rose Black Tea.  All of the little jars are samples of some of the flavors of tea they had.  This was where you could open any of the jars and smell the tea.

 

 

We walked around the town and took in the sights.  There was an outdoor flower market, a square that had musicians performing, and several churches.  There were also lots of very cute clothing shops as well and many other tea shops.  It was absolutely lovely.
