Enna has a darling DaWanda shop too. I heart DaWanda – they’re this really cool Berlin-based site that’s a little bit like Etsy as it promotes indie artists here in Europe and beyond. And I’ve talked to the owner via email and she’s a doll, I hope to meet up with her when I visit Berlin in October. Yay!
For the locals, Enna just opened a brand new store in Hannover Linden called Enna Shop located at Deisterstra?e 68 – and she’s a Zakka fan, so you know I’ll be visiting her little storefront soon. If she lets me snap a few photos, I’ll certainly share my visit with you. :)

Have you heard of the online fabric shop called Volksfaden based out of Berlin? Volksfaden, translated as the “people’s threads”, have such an exciting array of fabrics imported from Japan and the United States. I’m tickled to learn about Volksfaden because when I’m in Germany I never know where to find such fabrics and now I do, I can order from a local online fabric store in case I require some additional yardage for a project. Shipping will be a breeze.
With names like Amy Butler, Kyo Yasai and My Folklore by Lecien, Free Spirit, Erin Michael, and Joel Dewberry, you can be certain that there’s something for you. And check out how they collage fabrics with vintage photos on their website. The more I look at them, the more I think of mixed media collages and what a great idea this would be for creating mini DIY art.
Thank you Linda for writing to me today about your shop. It’s great.
