Basar Delux!

It's time for the last edition of Basar - the little design market I have been taking part in a couple of times the last two years. This one will of course be a Christmas market, taking place this Sunday at Storgatan 3 here in Gothenburg. More and updated info here. You can also find out more about all the goods and vendors on our Tumblr. There will be loads of good stuff for sure! Remember, this is the Deluxe edition… The Basar lineup this last time includes Le Kiosk, Winterbird Co., For Good Luck, Birgit & Benny, studio esinam, Emma von Brömssen and more. Gosh, it will be good.
And like always, you'll find Bergslagsgatan at the same stand as Up the Wooden Hills!

I will bring nothing less than the famous Granliden Mittens. Since this summer, I have been knitting a lot while not attending to my webshop too much. Time for a change! Right after Basar I'm doing a serious update, and there will be mittens in a range of colourways just in time for Christmas. I will keep you posted about the update through Instagram.

BASAR DELUX 11.00-15.00
Address: Storgatan 3
Tram stop Hagakyrkan
Bring cash (iZettle payment possible too)

See you on Sunday!

Fine Little Day book!

After months of work, it is finally here, the Fine Little Day book! I have hardly mentioned it at all here, but those of you following me on Instagram might have seen some sneak peaks under the hashtag #finelittledaybook… Now that the book is out, more people have started using it. If you haven't checked it out yet - go and have a look!

I have had the honour to work alongside Elisabeth Dunker, doing the graphic design - a field I'm not really trained in other than through my own projects. I feel very happy and a bit overwhelmed that Elisabeth chose me to do it! This project has somehow proved to me that you can indeed go quite far and learn loads of stuff on pure lust and and commitment. I'm glad I was audacious enough to take on a job I really wasn't sure I could carry through with. "Fake it 'til you make it" has been my motto in this process.

We have had a lot of fun putting this book together. Endless work, but always inspiring. The task of marrying our visual expressions together sure has been interesting. I think I decided on handwriting quite early on. It seemed like the only way to make sure it didn't get too clean and tidy. Using watercolour for the lettering sure was the answer to that question!

Pictures above from our release party at the new Fine Little Day studio here in Gothenburg. One could say that POTHOLDERS has been a somewhat recurring theme both in the book and afterwards.

Until November 16th, those of you living in Sweden have the opportunity to buy the book at 10% discount using this link. Apart from that, it is of course available worldwide in the Fine Little Day shop!

We have already received some feedback and been mentioned in a few blogs, here are some links (mostly in Swedish):
