Shopping in stores like H&M, Zara or Mango is fun, in most cases.

Sometimes it feels like the whole town population gathers there to jerk brand new dresses and shirts from the clothes rail, just to take a look at them and to throw them on the grubby ground afterwards.

Sometimes it´s so crowded, you have to find your way through a maze of busy people searching for the perfect dress for this date in this fancy restaurant or just restocking their wardrobe after they cleared it.

Sometimes you inspect the latest collection, unsuspecting, and suddenly a woman appears, who actually seems to be nice, but in fact takes the most beautiful shirt before you even get there.

Needless to say, in terms of shopping there are good days and bad days, we all know.

A few days ago, I actually had a good shopping day. But I wasn´t at the usual shops, I went to a market with my friends. And it was amazing! All these colorful booths, hand-made accessories, buskers everywhere, sunshine.

And when I saw this little baby here, the day turned out to be a perfect one.

I wanted a backpack like this for a long time and I actually saw a lot of them in these arabic leather kind of shops, but I never found the perfect one.

Of course, I was looking for quality, but even more important was a simple, but beautiful design.

Besides, I felt sooo good about buying this beautiful piece of leather, because I felt like I discovered it in the mass of stuff there.

It wasn´t like buying stuff in a shop, where 90%, or maybe 75% of the stuff is fashionable, more or less.

Even though I know this backpack isn´t really unique, it seems to be unique to me.

Shopping in stores like H&M, Zara or Mango is fun, in most cases. But shopping at a market on a wonderful Sunday morning is something so special and lovely - I think I should go there more often.

See you!
