Hunters and gatherers

Hunters and gatherers

I had an really exciting week. Despite a cold, I worked industriously for the craftmarket “hunters and gatherers”, I have been visited by a journalist and published in a newspaper (after I cleaned my flat for two days) and then finally yesterday I went to the craftmarket. Besides my wonderful family and my friends who came to support me, I also met creative new designers and had many wonderful conversations with market visitors. I thank “Stellwerk” (the location) and the organizer “Platine” for all their efforts and look forward to the next craftmarket in December. For those who could not come yesterday, I have now colorful pictures and gifted designer for you:


These tidbits of street-art were transfered on wood by the designer Martin Hayrapetian and also illustrated in parts. The picture with the kids on the bike is my clear favorite.


Who likes Martin’s artistic eye as well as me and was not there yesterday, is in luck. The likeable designer sells soon again in Hamburg at the Christmas market of the Apostle Church Eimsbuettel.


These fish are not only as sweet as sugar but are at the same time music boxes. Elliot Etual is the name of the designer behind these hand-stitched sea creatures and here can you find her Dawandashop:


A big thanks also to all the lovely people who baked so delicious cakes. to the person who has baked this chocolate-coconut-corners: I want the recipe!


Of course the charming organizer “Platine” must not be forgotten who not only makes this unique jewelry…


… but is also a professional seamstress and designer. Have you already spotted the little gold nuts at the zippers? Pretty cool! If you like to see more of Platines jewelry or would like to be kept up to date on the next “hunters and gatherers”- craftmarket, just look here:  https: // www / events / 195523023971915 /


This bag and many, many others are made by “Taschelinchen” who enjoys working with burlap and also has an online shop at her website: Have fun browsing and shopping!


“Sue y Moi” have kept what they promised  and served their guests vegan delicacies. If you like to know more about “Sue y Moi”, you only need to make the short hop to facebook here:


Of course I had to photograph this piece of jewelry as a born Hamburg-girl. And everyone who now thinks the material is snake skin, is of course wrong! The designer “Zimelien” works with Tilapia-leather …


… which is the tanned skin of tilapia, a fish with especially strong dandruff and so the material is fish leather and a natural by-product of breeding. Whoever gets glassy eyes with greed now, can visit Zimeliens Dawandashop here:


Last but not least, I want you to meet Mrs. Fux and her animal heads. This is not only an image but also a lamp and perfect for all ethno-lovers.
