Bogen 33 and Freitag

Yesterday, after I got back from the flea market, we went to Bogen 33 and the Freitag shop. Bogen 33 is an amazing store in the basement of an industrial warehouse building. They call it a second hand design shop, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. As it turns out, it's filled with an eclectic selection of vintage modern treasures, and being there made me feel like I was right back on Valencia Street in San Francisco. Their lighting selection was most impressive to me. They had the most interesting and unusual lighting I've ever seen, but everything there was fun eye candy. Check their web site for much better pictures of individual items.














Neat place, huh? Then we went to the Fritag shop, which was right down the street from Bogen 33. Freitag sells messenger bags made from old truck tarps, and how cool is the store, which is housed in these stacked shipping containers. It was a fun day in Zurich.

That's it, I have officially cut myself off from reading your blog today/this morning. I mean, that store blows my mind. I can't take all this, and all this is SO far away from me in Switzerland!!
