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.

AMERICANA also was helped out this time by local Tampere talent, The Amazing Anna Martevo, who assisted all her fellow Finns to get suited up for the winter in AMERICANA pieces.

Americana Featured in Italehti’s Ilona Magazine

From Italehti's Ilona Magazine: Story by Sanni Kekki & Photos by Pasi Liesimaa

Cover of Ilona Magazine

While AMERICANA was in Finland for Helsinki Vintage, Gina was interviewed by Italehti Newspaper‘s magazine Ilona.

The lovely writer Sanna Kekki sent us a copy in the mail. The photos that Pasi Liesimaa were great & we hope Sanna’s text was nice too, but unfortunately we don’t read Finnish.

Perhaps some of our friends in Finland can give us some insight on what the article said?!

As we always mention here, AMERICANA Finland & we’re coming back for more in November for our book launch at Rosebud Bookstore in Helsinki on the 19th & for Tampere Vintage on the 21st.
