Kiitos Suomi! (Thank You Finland!)

AMERICANA once again had a wonderful time in Finland…but this trip was EXTRA-SPECIAL!

Gina Interviewed by Hannele @ the Book Launch in Helsinki

Rosebud Bookstore at Korjaamo in Helsinki was the gracious host for Gina’s A-Z of Classic American Clothing book launch on Friday.  A BIG thanks to Hannele Hutala for the great interview, plus to everyone who attended the event!

We’re also bowled over by the review the book received from Ina of Good Rockin’ Baby.

On Sunday, AMERICANA hit the road to Tampere!

We were there sharing all our American goodies with the vintage lovers who came from all over Finland for Tampere Vintage.
