I'm planning a little trip to Frankfurt for the end of december and the first days of January, so it would be really useful to have some informations about the followings, if any of you can help, thanks a lot!

- Is there any place in Frankfurt where I can buy the Print Gocco?
- Advices of crafty shops, I'm interested in particular in sewing (fabric stores or thrift shops even good) and paper goods, but anything else is ok, I like it all  Wink
- Advices about open air markets, especially where to find vintage goods (not the expensive ones, though)
- Any other thing that you think is worth a visit or a look in the city!  Kiss

If any of you is planning a trip to Rome, here to answer!

Though I'm not living in Frankfurt, I searched a german craft board. Here's what i've found:
"Piccadilly Market"   Klingerstr. (next to C&A)
"Stoffe - Lagerverkauf"  Brönnerstr. 11   60313 Frankfurt (Zeil)   
"Wächtershäuser" Töngesgasse
these are as far as I can tell fabric stores.
Hope that helped...

I was in Frankfurt in September and although I didn't stumble across any craft stores I did find some really cool shops and cafes around the area that is on the "other" side of the river to the city. I can't remember what it was called (hopeless I know) but all the guide books referred to it as the up and coming area. Lots of great knic knac shops and new designers etc - many using really great crafty ideas. I'll try and find my guide book when I get home and post the name for you. We also found some really great bars in the back streets of the "city" area.

Thank you all  Smiley
LunaFate, I saw the amazing photos for that christmas market, but very very unfortunately I'm leaving on the 30th, so by the time I am in Frankfurt that market is over  Cry 
Hanabi, thanks for the useful hints; did you happen to see some flea markets also?

Cimba, we were there mid week so didn't happen to stumble across any flea markets.

I happen to have my Lonley Planet guide sitting here next to the computer..so I have looked up the name of that area...it's called "Sachsenhausen". The book also warned to take care round he main train station - it's a bit seedy.

The book doesn't say anything about flea markets but it mentions a couple of food ones...Bockenheimer Warte and Sudbahnhof on Thurs/Fri from 8am - 6pm...mayber there would be a flea market near by or attached? But maybe you would be better off cheking out the FrankfurtTourist Office website - http://www.frankfurt-tourismus.de/ you should be able to find something on there. OTherwise email info@tcf.frankfurt.de We always found the tourist offices very friendly.

Enjoy! I am very jealous!

A super thank you for all those info! Really kind of you  Kiss

This is my first foreign trip after 2 years, and actually the only vacation this year, no summer trips or anything else, so you're not supposed to be so jealous after all!   Cheesy
