Last Monday I tagged along with Elisa to the official opening of Rimini Bar’s Monday market. Every Monday in Summer, from May 23, the bar-come-bathing-area (for men only) opens its doors to the vintage- and kitsch-hunters and gorgeous fashionistas of Zurich. I’ve been a member of the Facebook group* since last Summer but not had the opportunity to go, so when E invited me to join her I made sure I was available.
As one can imagine, there were a variety of stalls to be had with enough to make you lust after, rub your hands in excitement and of course to just drool over. Like these yummy looking cupcakes, unfortunately far too sweet for my taste, though the cake was quite nice. I was really pleased to find the stall of Jo Brauer who’s blog I’ve been reading since it started a few months ago, and even more pleased when I got to meet the beautiful and friendly Jo herself. She sells the cutest and quaintest of vintage wares – her blog and online shop is well worth a visit.
There were lots of other gorgeous things to see and buy…
but by 08:00 it became too crowded for the narrow pathways and it became to difficult to browse the stalls, let alone shop!, so E and I made our way to the main train station for something to eat and some long overdue -girl-time.
If you’re on the hunt for something vintage, something different and something special – RIMINI’s Monday market is definitely the place to go!
