Ostpaket

Ostpaket, a retailer in the center of what was once East Berlin, sells only products made in the former East Germany. The loose translation of "Ostpaket" is "care package from the East," a playful reference to the time when West Germans sent "Westpakets"—clothes, West German food, and other products—to friends and relatives behind the Wall. Ostpaket is one of a number of shops in the former East Germany that caters to East German nostalgia.
