You will still be able to discover great finds, samples and other treasures. The products are sold directly from the vendors’ own physical shops and online stores, and most of the shops deliver abroad, too. The offers are valid from Thursday to Saturday, 3–5 September. The physical stores are marked with this sticker:
Brands include Johanna Gullichsen, Woodnotes, Hakola, Samuji, Lapuan kankurit and Klaus Haapaniemi & Co. See all the vendors and offers here.
