I saw some lovely crafty things during my travels. The range of wools available was fabulous in Finland. Thankfully the need for warm woolly jumpers doesn't last long here in Queensland. There is a strong emphasis on design, with tourist walks around design oriented shops mapped out within Helsinki. I took a day trip to the small town of Porvoo - about an hour from Helsinki- and there were lots of craft stores. Bliss.
Here are some pics:
Take home things included an necklace from Aarikka, a handbag from the Kapatori Markets and a freefrom bowl from Iittala. A stylish country.
