What makes a shop a favorite? It should offer so many beautiful things to discover that you spend more time in it than you initially planned to, right? And on the top of it, everything should be reasonably priced, so that you just can’t decide what to go for. And then, after you’ve purchased a little something, you should be already excited to come back to get more – that’s ting!
From interior decorations to stationery and accessories – at ting, you’ll find things you never know you wanted, but are even more happy to finally own them. It’s like a concept store for lovers of little things: small knitted puppets, colorful baskets, organic soaps, colorful masking tapes and so much more. Whether it’s a woolen plaid, a handmade notebook or an organic lip balm – all of these either scream „treat yourself“ or, even better, „treat a friend“!
ting means ’things‘ in Danish, as well as ’take your time’ in Chinese, and Laura, the owner, describes her concept as follows: “beautiful things from the nearby North to the Far East”. She opened the shop after years of traveling, to also make sure she can collect all the ting she encounters on her myriads of ways and bring them home to Prenzlauer Berg.
Located on the pretty Rykestraße, lined with blossoming trees, cute cafés and smart restaurants, ting needs to be a stop on your Prenzlauer Berg shopping spree. In case you can’t make it, there’s also an online shop with a selection of what’s available in store.
Time passed quickly when I browsed the shelves and chatted to Laura, who greets all customers with a sweet smile. Obviously, I couldn’t leave the store without buying something for myself: a delicate tea-light holder made from porcelain – I consider it only the beginning of a wonderful collection for my home.
