3+1 tempting vintage shops in Kallio

If you are one of those treasure hunters who love to shop in vintage stores instead of big department stores, you must pay a visit to Kallio. In the heart of Kallio, right next to Bear Park (Karhupuisto), there are several vintage shops. Hop off the tram at Bear Park and start the tour from Hoochie Mama Jane, then continue along Fleminginkatu and visit Olo-huone and Ansa, and before catching a tram again stop by Frida Marina at Kaarlenkatu, located right next to the Kaarlenkatu tram stop. Life made easy! And if you feel hungry or need a cup of coffee, enjoy one either at Olo-huone or Frida Marina, or stop by Galleria Keidas. Just be wiser than me and remember that on Mondays Frida Marina is closed.

Frida Marina is still a secret to me, as it is rather new and as I unfortunately did my last treasure hunting tour on Monday when the shop is closed. Frida Marina is a combo of vintage shop, flea market and café and it looks really tempting. Now I have one more reason to return to Kallio! Kallio, Vintage Frida Marina   Ps. Could someone please through a big party so that I would have a good reason to look for a new vintage dress?
