The advantage of travelling to Helsinki with your own car (we’ll tell you how to do this later) is you can shop and bring it back home.
In the case of the beautiful glass wear or Arabia ceramics, the stools from Alvar Aalto or other great designs from Artek, it’s handy to have a car and not just only a suitcase. During our Helsinki visit we hop from one (vitage) design shop to another. The good old Iittala factory, the outlet store of Artek, the 2nd Cycle Shop where you find the old classics from Artek. One of our favourite vintage shops is Kruuna from Pasi Pusa. He and his associate have a superb collection of glass wear and other kitchen tools.
