Edeltrödel Frankfurt – Backyard kitsch, house of treasures

Shopping

"Edeltrödel" is an antique shop in Frankfurt. It's a mess & you can never find anything specific here, but that's what makes this design shop special.

I often come here after work, on a Saturday morning or just between running errands. When entering the well-hidden backyard, one can't distinguish what is trash and what is actually on sale. Everything is a mess, poorly graded and it seems impossible to find a certain piece or category. And this is exactly why Edeltrödel is a fresh alternative to the usual interior design or antique shops in Frankfurt.

Their business model is based on household clearance thus all items are silent witnesses of every decade of 20th century German interior design.

I recently bought an old chest of drawers from the 1950s for very little money which is now an eye-catcher in my living room, even though it takes some time and energy to remodel the scratches and dents. But there are also smaller items like porcelain figures, design pieces, books a household items. So if you're looking for a special souvenir, why not have a look at this shop?!

And of course all prices are negotiable.
