Day two and David was dying for a cup of tea. We set off for A.C. Perch's Thehandel (tea shop) which was recommended to me by a Danish friend. The smell was glorious and we went upstairs for some tea and scones and shelter from the pouring rain. I had cinnamon tea - mmm.
I had my heart set on returning to that antique shop I had seen the day before but when we got there it was shut again with a lock and chain drawn across the steps. Hoping this was just temporary and still needing to get out of the rain, we went into the Rundetaarn (Round Tower). I forgot to take a photograph of the exterior, but the view from the top was magnificent:
When we got back down I was so pleased to find the antique shop open.
Amongst the many vintage treasures I could see from the windows the night before, I had spied an amazing mod chandelier. I had to have it! Can you tell which one excited me so much?
Yep - the chandelier with 3 tiers of orange and white discs. Very mod, very me.
I also got a Royal Copenhagen ornament thrown in to represent 2010 - if you'd like to know what I'm talking about, read my Bauble Me This post.
While the owner was packing up my purchases, she let me take some pictures of her amazing shop:
The owner seemed like a cool lady and even posed as I was taking a picture of the amazing unused vintage marimekko fabric in great condition. Although she said everything was for sale, she told me not to ask the price of this. Either she didn't realise I was a multi-millionaire [ahem] or she didn't want to part with it. I'm guessing the latter as she said it was a perfect backdrop for this area of her shop.
The shop was filled with vintage treasures and I recommend you check it out if you're ever in Copenhagen. Other antique stores there tended to focus on older (than mid century) items so I was lucky to find this place.
(I'll post detailed pictures of my purchases later).
