    We invite you to our Flea market (second hand shop) in the heart of Savitaipale Finland. Savitaipale is a beautiful, hospitable little town in between the lakes Saimaa and Kuolimo. It is well known for its various sports facilities (gym, pool, ice hockey, ice skating, curling, volleyball, tennis, horse riding, etc).

    We try to take all of our helper to our cottage, but this year we haven't been able to vist it there as much as we would have liked.The cottage is in a beautiful location near a lake with almost nobody around and where you can enjoy the nature. If you are a person who likes to hike, be in the wilderness with just the sound of singing birds this is definitely a place for We may also need help at the cottage with chopping wood, carpentry related jobs, painting and helping Sofia with her recycled-crafts workshop.
