top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>I walked into one of my favorite antique malls in Berlin – the Berliner Antik & Flohmarkt – a few weeks ago only to discover that my favorite antique shop was NOT there! Now this, my dear Diva Readers, was cause for a national emergency! Fortunately for me, the stress was short lived as the perky owner of Reiseantiquitäten & Kunsthandel (Travel Antiques and Art Dealer) Priti Shambhu was still in the German antiques mall closing up details and she delighted me by appearing around the corner and explaining that she hadn’t closed shop, merely moved to another location across town!

The new location of her shop – Reiseantiquitäten & Kunsthandel, as fabulous as ever – is now located in Berlin’s Charlottenburg in the Suarezstrasse Antiques District!

It is still divine and I’m still salivating over the beautiful antique travel accessories!

Since then I’ve picked up a few more globes chez elle when the opportunity hit!

If you like Travel Antiques and Accessories, a visit to Priti Shambhu’s Reiseantiquitäten & Kunsthandel in Berlin is worth taking a trip simply for the souvenir shopping in her charming new shop!

Happy Travels!
