An unusual shop

This summer a blogger friend introduced me to an unusual shop. What makes it so unusual is that the shopkeepers so trust their customers that they leave the shop  unmanned and the customer is the one who weights the products ,writes down the total sum and then puts the money into a box.
The fresh produce of Majvik's biodynamical  farm is sold in the shop.
You can find there  many ecological and organic products. 
When you buy vegetables or fruit you weight them yourself with this old fashioned kitchen scale!
A pretty flower pot outside the shop
The surrounding area is beautiful as well. I would love to visit this shop again!

Pikku Huopalahti-Tiny Felt Bay ,a neighbourhood in Helsinki

Pikku Huopalahti is a neighbourhood in Helsinki,Finland,built in the  1980's and 1990's. The neighborhood is home to over 9000 people.
Pikku Huopalahti  is full of beautiful green areas and parks.
The main club house in the neighborhood is used by neighborhood committees and other organizations.It also houses art exhibitions.The building itself used to be the old railway station of the Tapanila neighborhood,but was transferred to Pikku Huopalahti.
The white building in the background is the former military hospital of Tilkka
Garden plots next to houses in Pikku Huopalahti;so lush in July when I visited there.
And this is where I used to live...I could see the bay from my balcony...
