We’re so excited about our participation at Helsinki Vintage this weekend!  The event is from 11am-6pm, Sunday September 19th, at the Cable Factory in Helsinki.

Americana will be there selling all the coolest, classic American vintage clothing.

Gina of Americana will also be participating in a panel discussion about vintage clothing and American culture at 1 o’clock during the event.

On the panel will also be Matti Majava who is the creator of the Beavers Jeans label, runs the Finnish Denim Museum and who was the person who originally brought jeans to Finland.

The panel’s moderator is Mimosa Dedanann, a vintage and reproduction designer from Tampere, who is an underground culture and 1950s lifestyle enthusiast.

So come see us at Americana & have a great time at Helsinki Vintage!
