Shout Out To All The Folks @ Bakåt:Framåt

Americana @ Bakåt:Fråmat

What a great weekend for Americana at Hornstull Strand!  The joint was packed to the rafters with vintage lovers and there wasn’t a better place to be in Stockholm than with all of you!

Americana outfitted lots of y’all with authentic items from the USA & sent you away with facts and history about the classic clothes you now treasure. But if you didn’t make it to Bakåt:Framåt and happen to meet a well-dressed someone with a cool swagger & a story to tell about the heritage of their American vintage clothes, you can be almost certain that they’ve seen us this weekend.

So what’s next for Americana?  A lot!

We will be working on expanding our web shop, finishing the book on A-Z of iconic American clothes, blogging facts & history of American clothes and developing our plans for bringing Americana Classic Vintage to Scandinavia full-time.

We’ll also be on-tour this summer, so don’t miss us at American Days in Jägersro 3-5 July and at Power Big Meet in Västerås 8-10 July.  We’re also interested in participating at other events in the Nordic region, so let us know if you have any good tips!

Stay tuned to the blog & see y’all again soon!

Americana at Bakåt:Framåt with Eurovision Surprise!

Getting Americana's Things Ready for B:F

We at Americana are having fun this week getting together a very special selection of American vintage clothes for the Bakåt:Framåt Vintage Fair this weekend. We have chosen some of our tastiest items to bring.  You’ll want to take time out to visit our booth for a while to see what delicious treats we have brought you all the way from the USA!

Lori, who is Americana’s best friend, will be at B:F helping us out.  You’ve got to stop by our booth, even if it’s only to meet this fantastic girl from Ohio. When she’s not in Sweden helping out Americana, she’s busy tutoring English to Armenia’s entrant for the Eurovision Song Contest.

So come meet Lori & not only learn more about your American vintage favorites, but perhaps find out why you should give Armenia your Eurovision vote this year!

Vi på Americana håller just nu på att sätta ihop ett väldigt speciellt urval amerikanska vintagekläder för Bakåt:Framåts vintagemässa nu i veckoslutet. Vi har valt ut några av våra bästa plagg och skulle gärna se dig komma förbi för att se vad vi tagit med oss hela vägen från USA.

Lori, som är Americanas bästa vän, kommer att vara med på B:F och hjälpa till. Om inte annat, kom förbi för att träffa denna fantastiska tjej från Ohio. När hon inte är i Sverige så ger hon engelskalektioner till Eva Rivas som representerar Armenien i årets Eurovisionsschlagerfestival i Oslo.

Så kom och träffa Lori och lär dig mer om dina amerikanska vintagefavoriter, men du kan kanske också kan få reda på varför du ska rösta på Eva Rivas och Armenien i årets Eurovisionsschlagerfestival!
