The day of little pop up fleemarkets all over Helsinki was here again. Almost 30 degrees meant loads of people out and about and that was lucky for us as this time we wanted to get some more space in our closets too. We went to my favourite kiosk in town, the random but very affordable Käpylän kiska that spreads good mood (like it on fb to find out the open hours. Usually it is open if the weather is nice). It is a common place for flee markets and chilling in the summer anyway, nicely located with a lawn for the kids to play in and a school yard right next to. It is right below the “sky hill” I recently blogged about. Our strategy was to go there with some friends, play and enjoy the sun, have a picnic and be happy if we sell some stuff on the side too. The plan worked out nicely, and after a nap at home we’ll still have time to hit one of the other annual events concurring today such as the Kumpula village fiesta (Kumpulan kyläjuhlat), the World Village Festival in Kaisaniemi or the crafts fair in Kamppi. Unless we decide to do something else and leave some of the free but fun events for tomorrow. Or next year.
For me the weekend contains a lot of the best free but fun things in the summer: friends, picnic, sun, free events with entertainment and being able to be spontaneous. What are the best things of your affordable summer?
