Yesterday I went to the Marimekko outlet store for their "ystävyysmarkkinat" (~ "Friendship Market"), which is just another word for warehouse sale. I was expecting all kinds of craziness and bruises, but was pleasantly surprised. The store was big and the sale very well organized. There were plenty of changing rooms, security guys and shop assistants keeping the chaos under control and the panic at bay. There were many things on offer and quite a lot of gems to be found.
I got these small napkins to go with a spring surprise package for my grandma and some other little things I'll gradually post to my Flickr page. Apart from the small journey I had to make to get to the store, it was all a stunningly relaxed experience (and the journey really is not that far, either). The sale is still going on till tomorrow in the outlet as well as the other Marimekko stores. I'll let you know if I will have been tempted to sneak another peek. ;-)
