From The Craft Market








So I spent a weekend in Turku and returned home on Sunday evening. First of all BIG thanks to all sweet people who visited Karuski table! I was very happy to meet many, many friendly customers there. Besides people, the weather was so nice too. We were lucky to get sunshine on both days.

I shared a booth with VitiDesign which is a label offering tees, panties, boxers & jewelry for gals and guys. Textiles are made locally by using certified ecological cotton. Too bad my friend Mari (designer and owner of VitiDesign) wasn't able to be present, she was celebrating at her sister's wedding on Saturday in other city. We need to arrange a get-together another time!

Next to me was Reetta of Joutomaa. It was great to hear she's opening a b&m shop + atelier late October in the centre of Turku. Some Karuski items might be found from there as well. Stay tuned! KUIdesign girls were also fun to talk to. I've been doing consignment with their shop for quite some time already. Their shop is so very cosy, I love its atmosphere! They made some new orders from Karuski too.

The weekend was really good, I'm feeling tired but happy. I'm already looking forward to visiting Turku soon again!

I was there! And I saw your booth! But I am an idiot and my brain wasn't working yet after all the travelling the week before, so I just kept wondering why karuski sounded so familiar... Now I feel silly. :D
