Old artefacts and curiosities

Lähdimme eilen pienelle vintageshoppailuretkelle parin ihanan leidin kanssa. Matkalla poikkesimme Killinkoskelle, jossa toimii vanhan nauhatehtaan museo. Nauhamuseooon emme ehtineet, mutta kiinteistössä toimi myös muita sekalaisia näyttelyitä. Näimme mm. vanhoja leluja, palontorjuntavälineitä, kameroita ja opetusvälineitä. Rakastan kaikkia outojen tai vanhojen esineiden näyttelyitä!

We took a trip up north with two lovely vintage ladies to do some vintage shopping. On the way, though, we decided to pay a visit to a little village with an old ribbon factory. The factory is now a museum and the premises also hold a few other exhibitions with mixed themes. We didn't have time to visit the factory museum, but we did see old toys, fire fighting equipment, cameras and educational items. I love museums with old curious artefacts!

The exhibitions are placed in an old factory building. It was freezing inside!

Movie projectors from the 20's

This entire toy collection belonged to one lady alone.

"Operator, operator!"


I'm not very old yet, but I went to an old school and they still had some old educational boards in there, mainly for decoration though.

Mmmm, guts...

This reminds me of those music lessons in the elementary school when the teacher played the piano in the class room and we all had to sing from our notes. We even had singing tests, where everyone had to sing alone in front of the class. I still hate singing in public.
It was a lot more free in high school, when we just got to play around with the instruments and the recording studio all by ourselves.


Isn't she a beauty!


Pystyn näyttämään sintageostokseni vasta myöhemmin, sillä ne täytyy pakastaa öttiäisten varalta, pestä ja silittää. Toistaiseksi voin näyttää vain nämä kengät. Ne ovat luultavimmin 40-luvun alusta sota-ajalta materiaaleistä päätellen. Vain punaiset osat ovat nahkaa, muuten kengät ovat canvasta. Sisäpohjat ovat joko paperimassaa tai jotain vanerin tapaista puuta, ulkopohjat ovat kumia. Sota-aikaan lähes kaikesta oli pulaa, joten esineitä valmistettiin milloin mistäkin, olen mm. törmännyt paperista valmistettuihin "kangas"kenkiin.

I'm unable to show you my purchases just yet, since they need to be frozen for bugs, washed and ironed. I can only show you these shoes for now. I think they're 40's war time shoes judging by the materials. they're mainly made of canvas with only the red parts being leather, the inner sole is some kind of paper-mass or plywood and the outer soles are rubber. The materials were short those days so all kinds of alternatives had to be used, I've seen f.ex. shoes made of paper fabric.
