Our Finnish neighbors have a really elaborate flea market tradition and slowly but surely Estonians have been taking their sustainable lead. In Tallinn you can find several flea market concept stores where you can easily refresh your wardrobe, find some books to read or discover a gadget that has been missing from your household – Kalamaja Basaar is one of my favorites.
Kalamaja Basaar is nicely organized: there is plenty of space to move around and changing rooms are actually fit for changing. This bazaar is not vintage oriented nor an antiques store, but a simple, practical (mainstream if you will) clothes store. My heart still aches for the Birkenstocks I almost bought there two summers ago. When exploring Tallinn, you will most likely be strolling on the streets of Kalamaja district anyway, so it is convenient to access. Maybe you even had a burger at their neighbors – Uulits Tänavagurmee.
And if you are staying in Tallinn for longer than a week and your suitcase is too heavy to bring back home – why not rent yourself a shelf in Kalamaja basaar (starting from 5 euros) and earn some money? The basaar participates actively in charity and donates some of their earnings.
