Find & Be Found!

"I am a Thing-Finder, and when you're a Thing-Finder you don't have a minute to spare. . . . The whole world is full of things, and somebody has to look for them."
Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

A big part of starting this blog was the decision to finally start sharing a great passion of mine and to write about and post images of my findings: OPP-SHOPPING, grossly underrated, naturally fitting, increasingly sensible and so very livable!!!

In Sweden, "loppis" are the places to go. They are second hand markets, found in shops, garages, barns, car boots and carts by the roadside. A paradise for treasure hunters and lovers of Scandinavian design, craft, fashion and homewares.

Living in Sydney, this thingfinder's heart has many opportunities to jump, too!

Naturally, Anke


  1. Ahhhh... und ich darf diese Jahr in Schweden nichts kaufen. Und habe ich schon erzählt, daß ich einen WE-Trip nach Amsterdam vom liebsten aller Männer geschenkt bekommen habe? Gestern abend habe ich mal angefragt, ob wir den nicht auch nächstes Jahr machen können... er hat nur kräftig gelacht!

  2. Great photo and great quote - I am loving this blog. It's so readable, partly because it's a bit of visual, a bit of quote and a bit of thought - perfect bite-sized well-rounded snack!!

  3. Thing Finders Unite !!
