Mmm... Clothes by the kilo. My favourite kind of clothes. I found Garage, on Ahornstraße, to be the best for Berliner vintage. The clothes were relatively inexpensive (if you stuck to the by-the-kilo bit) and if you spent enough time in there, you could be sure to find a few bits and bobs to delight and satisfy your craving. Because everyone has clothes cravings, right? Or is it just me? Like, don't tell my therapist or anything but when I don't go charity shopping for more than two or three days I start to go a bit mad. Okay, not a bit mad, kind of totally crazy, agitated, bored. Go on Tuesdays when it's happy hour (for two hours from 11am) when you only pay €10 per kilo.

I contentedly bounced around the city the next day, dressed up in a well loved fraction of my finds.

Shirt and leggings, both paid by the kilo from Garage.
Patent shoes: From Mauerpark Flohmarkt, a bustling market in Prenzlauer Berg.
Sunnies and bag, both from Eastbourne Charity shops. The sunnies only set me back 50p. Good thing too, considering how many times I have dropped them in the past month.

I'd pretty much kill to find one of those pay by the kilo places. Looks like you snagged some sweet finds!

you SHOULD totally come to Poland. here we have places where you pay-by-the-kilo and the price is around 1-4 euro, meaning 4 euro for new delivery and the items are very hip :)

Oh WOW!!! I would LOVELOVELOVE to shop there! The thrift stores near my apartment have NOTHING. It's so disappointing!

wow wow wow!
I need to shop there!
clothes by the kilo is such a good idea - so unique and probably cheaper the lighter the clothes are!
