Hi sweeties! How are you today? I've been avoiding going to the city center lately because I can't stand how commercial it all gets this time of the year. I like to support independent designers and small shop owners. So today me and my friend Jaana decided to explore all the thrift stores and little boutiques in our neighborhood. And there are some real gems around here! I thought I'd introduce you some of my favorites. If you're ever in Helsinki, you should check out Up with Kallio - a map and guidebook to my neighborhood Kallio's shopping, cafes and bar. I warmly recommend! :) All photos are via Up with Kallio.
