Adam & Eve Lifestyle Accessories – Lindau Bodensee:
We were around 8 years old when Jeff and I were chased by a angry dog – we made it. More than 30 years later my friend Jeffrey Robertson bailed out of the IT-Business and started his own shop last month. A fine selection of high quality, colorful and innovative products. The focus is on bags, handbags, backpacks, wallets and accessories. 

Here an overview of the brands he offers:

The love for “vintage” stuff might have been influenced a lot by working for Zeller art and antiques auction for about a decade. Surrounded by thousands of objects which move through the auction house every 3 month will not get by unrecognized even by a nerd. Realizing that some stuff is affordable and even quite cheap if you compare the craftsmanship involved in creating those pieces I started to hunt. It is not just the präservation of a (our) heritage it is also a kind of recycling. Bargains on flea markets are hard to find, with ebay being a price guide most sellers have a good reference for the price. Auction houses tend to start low with a price to attract bidders and if you are lucky you might be the only one who bids.

The images above, I took on a visit just give a quick impression “behind the scenes”, some more great stuff is still coming in and to show approx. 3500 – 4500 lots is impossible. Bidding online is possible but visiting a traditional Art Auctioneer like Michael Zeller who does his job since more than 40 years is a thrilling and sometimes entertaining performance.

Fascinated by the display of a “cigarette box people” by Helmut King about 8 years ago, since then this artist was always around. Either on the WM 2006 in the streets of Bregenz, in art restaurants and bars or on his exhibitions. Last year I met him and got a signed copy of his “cigarette box people” book and yesterday I more accidentally was told that I could join a private visit to his atelier. He showed us his amazing range of art he created within the last decades and to the end he juggled for Paul. Thanks for your time and inspiration. (c) by Helmut King

Mountain panorama this morning:
What a great panorama view on my way cycling to work.  The water in front is the lake of constance (Bodensee), behind the newly snow covered alps and the big one is the Säntis. I better hurry up to make some more hiking trips this autumn or snow shoes are the other option.

 

Bodenseeweine – Private party by Deufel, Haug and Lanz

See la vie – Private party in the vineyard:
The winegrowers of the bavarian part of the lake of constance did a private party in a vineyard for their friends last sunday. Great day, weather, wine, sound, folks, organization, and food. I hope there will be See la vie 2.0. Thanks a lot to the winegrowers Deufel, Haug and Lanz. 

Mrowka´s Hoflanden – How shopping for food should be

Mrowka´s Hoflanden – How shopping for food should be:
I´m so glad that farmers are still around and direct shopping opportunities from them are widely available and increasing. One of my most favored farmer shops is Morowka´s Hofladen. They recently added another room so even more space for offering their selection of fruits, vegatables and they even add a cafeteria.

Opening times:
Mondays, Thursdays, Wednesday and Fridays  10-12 am and 4-7pm

Vintage German matchsticks

Found this cool matches / matchsticks today. Must be at least 20 – 30 years old. Full of smart ass phrases, like
“hast du zündhölzer – hast du feuer!”
- you got matches – you got fire!

“wer immer stets vergleiche zieht – im fachgeschäft den vorteil sieht”
- who constantly compares sees the advantages of buying in a specialist store

“der kluge kopf kauft nur im fachgeschäft”
- the smart head buys only in a specialty store.

The phases could not be more relevant than they are today. I guess at the time these matchsticks were produced – Internet was still far away and supermarkets outlet stores and malls were as well not too omnipresent.

Would love to see these matches soon in one of the shops featured on the right side of my website.

Teresa Deufel Wein – Lindau Bodensee

The History of the Teresa Deufel Vine, too long to translate ;-). Grab a case or more for nice evenings with friends.

Der Ursprung
1975 hatten mein Vater und mein Onkel eine Vision. Sie wollten den Lindauer Wein, nach über 200 Jahre langer Ruhepause, wieder aufleben lassen.
Denn was vielen nicht bekannt war, bereits im 13. Jahrhundert gab es Weinbau rund um die Bodenseeinsel, bis zur Säkularisation im 19. Jahrhundert.
Mit der festen Entschlossenheit, was 650 Jahre lang funktionierte, auch in der Neuzeit möglich sein musste, gingen sie ihrer Idee nach.

Die Entwicklung
1977 war es soweit, der 1. Lindauer Wein war in der Flasche. Zunächst als “saurer Seewein“ verschrien, glaubte die Stadt Lindau an ihn und machte ihn zum Repräsentationswein. Als bekannt wurde, daß Franz-Josef Strauss persönlich den Seewein schätze, wurde der Grundstein zur Akzeptanz & Popularität der Lindauer Traube gelegt. Knapp 7 Jahre nachdem die beiden “Jungwinzer“ ihren Entschluss gefasst hatten, ihrem Traum nachzugehen, konnten sie ihre Weinberge um 5 ha erweitern. Die Großlage Lindauer Spitalhalde war geboren. Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus, Spätburgunder und Weißherbst wurden erfolgreich und dank vieler Unterstützung erzeugt. Den Visionären wurde nachgesagt, sie seien die “Bill Gates des Weinbaus“, weil sie sich trauten in einem kleinen Keller die Lindauer Weinbau-tradition wieder aufleben zu lassen und das mit Erfolg.

Die nächste Generation
Nun bin ich, Teresa Deufel, an der Reihe und möchte diese Tradition weiterführen.
5 Jahre studierte ich in den besten Betrieben in Deutschland und Österreich die Kunst des Weines, wälzte in den größten Büchern, die das Fach zu bieten hatte und besuchte eine renommierte Weinbautechnikschule.
1975 standen 2 junge dynamische Lindauer vor einem Seegrundstück und waren bereit alles zu geben, um den Lindauer Wein wieder zum Leben zu erwecken. Die Erhaltung unseres Weingutes wurde auch zu meinem Traum und so steh ich nun vor meinem Weinberg und bin bereit alles zu geben, damit der Lindauer Wein erhalten bleibt.
