Happy Christmas!

by James Glazebrook

Happy Christmas from überlin and Olive

Olive wanted to pop by to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and to thank everyone who supported us through a year of big changes, and occasionally tough, yet rewarding, times. She rightly pointed out that überlin would be nothing without our community, and thought we should remind our coworkers, readers, followers and friends: we love you all.

A special “paws up” to Free Your Stuff Berlin for donating a kostenlos Christmas tree (we promise to stop trolling you so hard!) and to Shinola, the Detroit product designers who made the luxurious dog bed that Olive is modelling so beautifully here. To all our überliners, Frohe Weihnachten and Guten Rutsch!

Free Your Stuff Berlin is getting weird

by James Glazebrook

Free Your Stuff Berlin is more than just a Facebook group where Berliners can give and get all sorts of um, stuff, for, well, free. It’s also a gathering place for Berlin’s poor and tired, its huddled masses, its wretched refuse – whether object or human. We’ve been watching the wall on the lookout for freebies, furniture and nicknacks for our new space, and, well, it’s been getting weird…
