Linnunlaulu Flea Market Helsinki – Villa that has everything

shopping
Shopping

"Linnunlaulu Flea Market" Helsinki is in a very old house, from the 1870s. It's filled from floor to ceiling with stuff. The smell alone is priceless.

The eastern side of Töölönlahti, known as Linnunlaulu, is known for its beautiful 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, on the top of a hill. 

And it's not only a great house, but it is also 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 on in the yard. The smell of smoke from the old fire places and the classical music playing inside makes the atmosphere quite unique.
