Flagship stores in Helsinki

Friday, 30 August 2013

We spent part of the summer travelling and one of the shortest but sweetest stops was Helsinki. On a short stretch of Esplanadi are the flagship stores of Marimekko, iittala, Artek, and Aarikka. Suffice to say, I spent a considerable amount of time in all these stores, admiring and learning. And of course, I also managed to pick up some bits and pieces for my store from the plentiful thrift shops.

Here are some photos that I snapped.
