Spoilt Fur Choice

"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing don't mean nothing honey if it ain't free, now now.
And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
You know feeling good was good enough for me,
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee"

-Me & Bobby McGee, Janis Joplin

Around the corner from our apartment in Berlin, antique stores literally lined the street and I made a conscious effort to appreciate seeing so much deliciousness every single day. I remember thinking 'I am so spoilt to be able to have so much fur in my eyes'. Now I know what your thinking: 'yeh some fur jackets so effing what?' (well you probably didn't say 'effing', but if you did, I am so effing proud of you right now!)
But seriously.
I am talking about, rows and rows, and complete WALLS full of every single type and colour fur you could even imagine. I feel quite confident in saying I am somewhat of an ammeter fur expert...and if not that then I am just one big effing fur enthusiast! One day, in the mountains of Mongolia you will find me, in head to toe fur riding a majestical white horse in the snow. Heaven on earth.
(p.s I have seriously, and in depth researched this, and it looks like it may happen in February so keep your cute little fingers crossed for me)
Aside from the fur, other antique treasures also filled my eyeballs including jewellery, crystals, furniture, records, camera's, books and artworks. I have a strange fascination with vintage photographs and like the idea of using them as postcards (in particular those awkward family portraits where everyone looks very serious and very dressed up). You should do it one day....(the postcard idea dorks, not the family portrait).
We were literally seconds away from buying some foxes to drape over our shoulders one day, but the chances of getting them into Australia were slim to none and their eyeballs really creeped me out. Next time.
p.s Alot of you have told me your super keen to go to Berlin now, and I hope in my heart this tips you over the edge and get's you on a plane asap.
the end.
How effing good is this! I want this on a tee-shirt

If this is where I think it is, I was at this market too. Bought a vintage camera, record and some GDR money! xx
