Hello, hello, hello. Guess who found yet another flea market/second hand store here in Helsinki? And this one is a very nice one too!
Puavuoren Patina has been open for about a year and it’s located on Sepänkatu 11, in the Punavuori neighbourhood. The closest tram stops are Eiran Sairaala and Viiskulma. Actually this isn’t too far from Hietsumarket, so you can visit both of them on a same trip. Very handy, if you are looting 😉
This is how the place looks like outside. They also have a small café inside. With cheap coffee. Me likes. When you first go inside, you see the cash register and the café area. Then there’s a room to the right, where the “booths” are located.
They’ve put a lot of effort in the decor and I like it. Though I couldn’t find a fitting room there, which can be bit of a problem for some shoppers/sellers.
There is at least one seller, who sells new items and the prices match but you can find items starting from 1 euro. In general I didn’t notice that the prices would be more expensive than anywhere else. Personally I’ve found a few flipping worthy items there.
That basket weave purse is awesome but it’s over my pain point for a flea market find. But then again, similar bag at H&M would cost 29,90€. At least this one is unique.
There are also quite a bit vintage items too. This box is just beautiful. Actually, some of the “booths” are vintage shelving units. Puurrrty.
Some regular clothing items you can find there.
There is also a basemen, where there are more booths. You can find the stairs behind this awesome poster, that I kind of want to have.
Over all, this is one of my favourite thrifting spots now. Their website is HERE and Facebook HERE. If you are interested in booking a table, they have a deal going on, where you get two weeks for 50/75 euros, depending on if you want a table in the basement or on the street level.
Again. Not a paid ad. Just letting you know about this place 🙂
