Since we were not able to make it in person this time to sell our American vintage clothing, we’ve found another way to participate in Helsinki Vintage.
AMERICANA will be sponsoring the event’s goody bags which will be given to the first 100 attendees through the door. The bags will contain one of AMERICANA’s vintage bandanas along with some more goodies from the other sponsors as well.

While AMERICANA was in Finland last week, Marimekko, the iconic Finnish textile company, had the launch of their new shoe project in cooperation with Converse. Although I didn’t make it to the release party at the flagship store in Helsinki, I did go down the next day to get a pair while they were still fresh.
Luckily this time, my adventure to get locally-designed Converse All-Stars was a little easier than my great shoe caper in Estonia that resulted in me buying a pair at the only place in town they were available: the post office.
This time, Marimekko’s Viola was there to help me find my size & the style I wanted. There was a DJ & dancers in the store, but sadly I wasn’t able to buy stamps for my post cards there as well.
The next day at Helsinki Vintage, Marimekko’s Design Manager Noora Niinikoski stopped by AMERICANA’s shop for a chat about Converse ♥ Marimekko and the whole heritage trend with American & Finnish brands. She amusingly recounted a similar adventure in Tallinn to find herself a pair of Estonian All-Stars, which also led her to the same back alley post office.
Here’s Noora to tell you all about Converse & Marimekko’s joint project:
They’re a limited edition so hurry!
AMERICANA had a great time @ Helsinki Vintage! We met some fantastic folks & admired the Finns’ individual style all day long. Here were some of our favorite looks of the day:
Look here for more great photos from Helsinki’s day of vintage style.

AMERICANA’s best friend from Norway flew in & added a special *sparkle* to our spot at Helsinki Vintage. R pulled out her old-school vintage hip-hop style, while Gina went for a rockin’ cowgirl look for the day.

In our opinion, Helsinki Vintage puts on a killer event of vintage clothes, entertainment and exhibitions twice a year in Finland’s capital city and & we think they deserve to win.
