Stepping off the train at Gothenburg Central and making the short walk to eco-conscious hotel Clarion Post, we instantly knew this weekend was going to be special. The weather was incredible (unreal almost for Sweden in June) hence the mood of the city, which was just totally vibrant and blissful. We couldn’t have wished for a better welcome.

Auktionsverket Kulturarena—the magical event space located on Tredje Långgatan that kindly housed us for the day—delivered on so many levels, and couldn’t have been a better setting for our fashion flea. And when unpacking what felt like a hundred boxes of clothes, shoes and accessories given to us to sell for the benefit of RFSU, we felt truly grateful towards the amazing brands that had generously contributed.

Thank you Filippa K, GANT, Stylein, ATP Atelier, House of Dagmar, New Black, L’Homme Rouge, J.Lindeberg, Sandqvist, EoE Eyewear, RESCHIA, Mouche Collective, Cheap Monday, Rodebjer, Monki, Hope, Urban Ears and Wacay.

And an extra big thanks to Norrlands Ljus and Way Out West for making us a part of the Re:LJUS festival, and for raising awareness around sustainability. Let’s do it again!

Finally, we want to send lots of hugs and kisses to all our fashionable friends who joined us on the floor, selling special finds from their private closets (and others!). Together, we raised quite a lot of money for RFSU (exact number TBC). 

Thank you Gothenburg for coming out, and to everyone who made this fashion flea possible. So much love <3
