Where in Germany?

Post by Gander on July 8th 2014, 3:01 pm

I recently started collecting WGP. You know how it happens - Bought a piece at auction on impulse, and bobs your uncle, I now have 40 odd.  Doh! 

Most of what I have got has been picked up on ebay. I have noticed that the more desirable items are from Germany (for obvious reason), so I am wondering if there is anywhere in Germany I could go to that would give me a good selection? Maybe a fair or some kind or a trade centre? Or even somewhere that may have quite a few little retail outlets.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Havelberg giant flea market is held in September, you would fly to Berlin then take a bus.

I guess it's way cheaper to buy selected items via ebay than traveling to flea markets where many other collectors are on the hunt, too (and where are so many early birds who get the worms). Try the German ebay site, prices are lower than on ebay UK or ebay USA. There may be several small shops in larger cities, but they have prices which are much to high in my opinion. I don't know a shop which may have a larger selection of ceramics.

What are you looking for?

Really, I am still trying to learn and compare. So far I have not really been drawn to a particular company or shape, but am just picking up individual pieces that I like from various companies. I'm away working for a couple of weeks, but when I get back I will try and get some photos up of what I've collected so far.

Thanks for the response.

Thanks for that. Sounds like fun - never been to Berlin.
