Linnunlaulu flea market – Villa that has everything

The eastern side of Töölönlahti, known as Linnunlaulu, is known for its amazing wooden villas. But it is rare to be able to go inside one. This is why the flea market house, also known as “Juneksen kirppis” after the name of the owner, is one of my favorite spots – it’s great to see and explore the villa, built in the 1870s, inside.

So if you’re taking a walk around Töölönlahti and see a small sign on the ground saying “Kirppis”, be brave and follow the sign. It leads to one of the villas, the one looking like it’s about to fall apart, right next to the railway gorge. 

And it’s not only a great house, but it is filled from the floor to the ceiling with stuff. Furniture, dishes, books, toys, anything! Just ask the owner the price, he is usually somewhere around the house. The smell of smoke from the old fire places and the classical music playing inside makes the atmosphere quite unique.
