Coming up in Helsinki: Retro & Vintage + Design Expo 31.3.-1.4.2018

This weekend is not only the long Easter weekend from Friday to Monday, but also a time for one of the best retro and vintage events in Helsinki! On Saturday and Sunday Kaapelitehdas hosts Retro & Vintage + Design Expo from 10AM to 4PM on both days. The tickets for entry are 10€ and you can get them at the door. It's a wonderful opportunity to find vintage and retro treasures including furniture, tableware, decoration items, collectors items and, what interest me, clothes, shoes and accessories! 

Personally I look forward to raiding VintagEija's stall at the Expo! I don't get to visit Turku often enough to get to Eija's wonderful vintage boutique. She specializes in the 1950's vintage clothing, and her shop is just a delight browse. You always find a treasure to take home with you from her shop! Luckily, she also has some of her items in her popular webshop.

The fair is organized by Exponova that organizes all kinds of vintage and retro events all through the year and also all around Finland. It's a good idea to take a look at their web page and mark down to your calendar their vintage events near you! 

If you find you still need more to do over the Easter weekend, worry not! Helsinki's fair center Messukeskus also hosts the American Car Show from 30.3.-1.4.2018! So if you feel like dolling up and strutting alonside hot rods and vintage cars - this is your place to be. What's better is that the rock'n'roll and swing dance club Comets is also performing there to get you into real vintage vibes! There's also live bands playing rockabilly music on both days, so what's not to love!
