the eve of May Day


Today is the eve of May Day or Walpurgis Night and in Sweden we traditionally burn a fire to celebrate the coming of spring. This picture is taken a week ago when we spent Easter in Finland and took the chance to clean the attic. So our fire was a bit early.

Christmas fairs!


Soon it is time for a Christmas tour. You will find us, for the second year in a row, at three Christmas fairs here in Stockholm, so it’s starting to become a tradition.

This year we move up one floor from Tellusgången and take part in Konstfacks Christmas fair at Telefonplan November 27-28, the fair is open between 10-17.

The following weekend you find us at Christmas at Rosendal in one of the lovely greenhouses on Djurgården. December 4-5, between 11-16.

It would be nice to meet you there! We are sure you will find something you like at these fairs, so remember to bring cash!

Throughout December, urbnCal will be in Bonniers julshop, Bonniers Konsthall.  Start with an exiting exihibition and then stop by the restaurant and shop.
Torsgatan 19, St Eriksplan, Wednesday – Friday 12-19  Saturday – Sunday 11-17.

manos in town!


Manos has left the green house at Överjärva Gård and moved to Renstiernas gata 22, Södermalm, Stockholm.  The first time we passed by our “jussi” was in the window! Today we delivered lots of newly printed “jussis”:  bodys, t-shirts and tote bags.
Karin, who runs Manos, sells her own nice ceramics (which you also see in the picture above) among hand picked items from around the world. Often there is an exibition from a  guest artist in one of the big windows. When in town – go there and get inspired!
