Aside from the various flea markets where bargain hunters can pick up vintage clothing and antique jewellery, there are a few dedicated shops in Mitte and Schöneberg selling all sort of knick-knacks.

Tea becomes unbelievably hip at a boutique aimed at teaching Berliners about the finer points of tea...
Ellington Hotel
Tradition with a modern twist is served up in style at the wonderful Ellington.
