Türi Flower Fair


On the 19th of May I visited Türi Flower Fair together with my grandparents. It was already the 35th Flower Fair in the spring capital of Estonia and I truly enjoyed my stroll at the fair (as long as there weren't too many slow people in my way). For your information: Türi Flower Fair has been held at the prime of spring gardening time for the last three decades. Plant and handicraft merchants from all over Estonia but also from Latvia and Lithuania come to the fair whereby the total number of stalls/merchants is around 800.
The last event, 34th in line, saw around 32 000 visitors in three days. By the way, I was one of the 32 000 people last year and you can explore that post from here.


Anyhow, now about some of my purchases. I got the Estonian jutebag called "Paws". The slogan says: "Take me with you!" and remembers you to take your jutebag with you every morning. Jutebag is laminated (waterproof) and heat-resistant - perfect for packing heat sensitive items because all vegetables and fruits from groceries remain fresh. It cost 12.- euros at the fair, otherwise it's 14.- euros + delivery charge. Do check out their homepage to see all the delightful jutebags.

I also bought a strawberry lip balm by another Estonian brand called Moshi, a pair of Estonian Etnosocks, a brilliant (b'day) gift for E., sea-buckthorn muesli, highly delicious Estonian strawberries and so on. Oh, and after the fair we had lunch at Adavere Tuulik ("tuulik" in Estonian = "windmill" in English) restaurant. I ate chicken fillet with blue cheese (chicken, tomato, blue cheese, pineapple, rice + orange sauce) and honestly loved it. I'm pretty sure I want to go back together with E. as well.


Altogether it was an eventful day and I hope you like my photos. By the way, it's conjointly the last post before our journey to Prague (we leave today for 5 days!). Obviously I'm not taking my laptop with me, so I'll get back to you, your blogs and comments when we're back in Estonia. So far let me know about your fair experiences and all other lovely thoughts!


I was wearing: sunnies - Prada; foulard - Guess; studded jacket - Amisu; vest - Fishbone Denim; leather belt - Lindex; asymmetrical tank top - Lindex children's department; pants - Reserved; flats - Jeffrey Campbell.

The flower fair sounds like a lovely way to spend the day and I'm completely in love with your PAWS bag. SO cute and practical.

  56. Welcome back! ^^

    Ooh, Prague sounds lovely.. I wish that me & Samuli have a chance to go abroad together soon, it could be a great for partnership too ;)

    Yep I remember we talked about Oriflame before. I have gotten some of their products as a gift, but never ordered myself.. Would love to try out them too, Yves Rocher is just more familiar to me :)

    Hugs ! I hope the weather gets more summery for us soon :)
