Discovered this delightful store In Charlottenberg where we’d gone to visit Manufactum. Profiling Michel Henau brand in shop window, GSO should already have taken delivery of their range.
Manufactum is Germany’s equivalent of Sydney’s Remo General Store yet
this store is in a different league. Beautiful mens clothing, glassware, stationary, cookware, toys. All available online. www.manufactum.de
