The best vintage shopping in Berlin!

Some of you may have seen it on social media or heard about it, so let’s get the cat out of the bag once and for all! We have teamed up with the fabulous Ballhaus Berlin to bring the Hauptstadt a vintage shopping extravaganza: monthly vintage fair!

The Vintage Berlin Guide is proud to present Old Fleas – The Vintage Market, in collaboration with the historical venue Ballhaus Berlin.

Old Fleas will take place the second Sunday of each month, starting the 8th May 2016. The following dates will be: Sunday 12th June 2016 and Sunday 10th July 2016.

At the Vintage Berlin Guide, we are passionate about vintage and strive to bring you the best vintage shopping Berlin has to offer. Trawling the many flea markets is tons of fun, but generally not very successful when looking for true vintage garments or something very specific. These days it is especially hard to find mid century vintage in Berlin markets, and the capital is screaming for an event of this kind! Berlin is big and its vintage shops are many and far apart, so why not bring the best retro designers and vintage sellers together and create a sensational regular shopping event? This has been a big dream of ours and we found the perfect partner in the gorgeous Ballhaus Berlin, on the Chausseestrasse.

The Ballhaus is a unique ballroom which was built in 1905. It is the only surviving ballroom of the Chaussestrasse and it has kept its old charm. The front of the building was bombed during World War II but luckily the ballroom survived with its original 1930s telephones on each table. Today it hosts a variety of events and is the perfect setting for vintage lovers and urban explorers alike.

Old Fleas will feature a selection of hand picked sellers of true vintage and retro designers, as well as home-made food stalls. There will also be a retro photo booth, a free taster class in Charleston, DJs to sooth your ears, performances from top cabaret artist Anja Pavlova and even a kids’ corner with activities, so you can shop till you drop! And the best news is that there are both outdoor and indoor areas, so there is no excuse to miss the vintage feast!
