Welcome to another week of our Shop 52 project. We have seen so many different shops over these last ten weeks… everything from artsy handmade to ultra chic Parisian flea market to last week’s mouth watering cupcake shop. This week we are taking a stroll through a very classy part of town known as Osterbro. Though this shop is tucked away from the main shopping street of Osterbrogade, do not let that fool you into thinking that this shop is not worth getting a little off the beaten path.
The first time I walked into Greibe & Kumari I felt confused. Didn’t the door just say that this was a second hand shop? Seriously, I went and nonchalantly glanced back at the front window. Okay, yes, I had read it right. But as I glanced around at all the gorgeous clothing for women and children with designer labels I didn’t understand how that could be possible. The sales clerk gave me some affirmation as she explained that the clothes were brought in on consignment, but only certain designer brands were accepted.
Well, that just perked me right up! What a fantastic idea! Brilliant, really! Everything I saw looked like it had never been worn, but the prices were so affordable. High fashion on a budget… now this is the kind of shop that can make a girl go weak at the knees!
What drew me in further was the beautiful attention to details. The wood floors, the pretty baskets, and even the wallpaper beckoned to me to relax, stay a while, and enjoy the finer things of life… without the hefty price tag!
Sigh… isn’t it just lovely? The light spilling in the window is so romantic…
The linens were set to charm even the littlest one to drift off to sleep…
Yes, it is shops like these that make the city of Copenhagen such a special place to live. Even if you come for a short visit, I hope through Shop 52 you will have a long list of great locally owned small businesses that will fill your suitcases to the brim!
