Shopping in Hamburg
Here you will find elegant designer fashion at a bargain price
The German-American Women’s Club opens a charity pop-up store on the Elbe. Why a visit is doubly profitable.
Hamburg. Chanel, Aigner or Saint Laurent handbags. Designer fashion from Jil Sander, Escada, Chanel and Gucci. And all at an affordable price. In Stilwerk in Hamburg From Thursday (November 23), visitors will be able to browse and buy lots of things on Große Elbstrasse on various dates.
The German-American Women’s Club Hamburg e.V. (DAFC) guests here for the third time Charity pop-up store. “There is clothing, lots of new shoes, bags and hats, but also used, very well-preserved brand clothes,” says organizer Claudia Mörth. “This is important to us: we are not a flea market. Everything here is in excellent condition and yet comes at a great price.

On the second floor of Stilwerk, an area of approximately 250 square meters will feature various stalls, making the bazaar larger than ever before. On site, visitors can find clothing donated by retailers, as well as second-hand goods, including from Hamburg-based luxury retailer Secondella.
There are also over 50 pairs of new shoes. “We also have vegan models,” says Mörth. Customers will also be pleased with a huge shelf full of handbags. The club’s offer also includes hats.
Charity pop-up store at Stilwerk Hamburg – opening hours:
- November 23–25, 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m

In the Antiques and Curiosities section, DAFC sells classic, small antiques. “From a crystal vase, to a candlestick, to a bowl, you can really browse here,” says the project manager.
Stilwerk Hamburg: unusual jewelry, Advent arrangements and raffle
An important area for the organizers are items donated, hand-prepared or hand-made. “We have a corner with cookies, chutneys and jams.” You can also find Santa’s handmade bags, socks and blankets there. There are also Advent arrangements that fit the Christmas season.
“The homemade jewelry we sell is particularly unique. I have been buying it for years because it is so beautiful and valuable.” Earrings, necklaces and bracelets are on display.
Of course, every classic charity shop also has a raffle. DAFC managed to receive tickets for the New Year’s Eve concert at Laeiszhalle and a hairdressing voucher from Marlies Möller worth EUR 150 as prizes. The ticket should cost 3 euros.
Stilwerk Hamburg: The famous Hamburg artist exhibits works
During the charity pop-up store at Stilwerk, three artists will also show their works. When individual photos are sold, part of the money goes to DAFC projects. On the first day (November 23-25), Christine Hanwalter from Düsseldorf will be present – and she will even paint live. “It also offers small units for children who want to get involved,” says Claudia Mörth.
The famous Hamburg nautical painter Heinke Böhnert, involved in DAFC, will also be present with his works. Your photos showing the original sails will still be on display and available for sale in early December. On the third day (December 7-9), Beatrice Dettmann will present her sculptures.
Proceeds from the charity pop-up shop will go to projects that DAFC has supported for years – such as theaters in Hamburg, six of which are financed by the club. “Here we take care of children from socially disadvantaged areas,” says Mörth. You receive a warm meal, support with homework, and you can play or do crafts. “In these homes, they receive significant care and support in the afternoons.”

DAFC also supports Ronald McDonald Houses in Hamburg. Parents of seriously ill or disabled children find a temporary home here. “In addition to providing financial support to these homes, we are there about every two weeks and cook a nice dinner together for the affected mothers and fathers.” Goal: to talk to parents and distract them from their suffering. “So that at least from time to time they can spend a nice evening in their extraordinary everyday life.”
Financial support for projects is very important to Claudia Mörth and her colleagues. This is one of the reasons why they have been planning the charity pop-up store down to the smallest detail for weeks. “We made a conscious decision to increase it a bit this year – in the hope that we can raise even more money for important projects.”
