Wonderful small retro labels and shops from Germany
I still can’t believe how the world has changed since my last post went online! As most of you, I’m going to spend my time at home, currently, and the only thing I can do right now it trying to somehow go on. For me, this means writing new blogposts. In the last few days, I saw how hard it is especially for small brands, cafés, restaurants, and shops.
I’ve always been a big fan of small, independed stores and brands. A world without such wonderful, creative, and charming brands/shops would be very boring. So in the following, I’m not only going to show you some very lovely small German retro labels and shops, but also tell you, how we can support small businesses right now.
PS: In this blogpost, I focus on German retro brands and shops, as it would have been ways too long if I share all the wonderful small retro brands/shops I know. You will find a lot of shops and brands from all over the world in my shopping tips, though, and I’m also planning an extra blogpost for them. 😉
How to support small retro Brands and Shops
Cancelled festivals and tradeshows, closed shops, and ongoing costs – especially for small shops, cafés, restaurants etc. this time is very challenging. But we all can support them!
- So please, if you can, still buy from such brands/stores. A lot of them are offering special shipping options, now.
- You can also buy a gift card from your favourite shop, café, restaurant etc.
- Or, if you don’t want to or can’t buy something at the moment, we can still show them our support on social media.
