This summer I visited a really cool place here in Sweden. It is called "Nostalgibyn" whick means the nostalgy Village as you probably already figured out. It is a small but facinating place in the countryside in the middle of nowhere so to speak. After what seams to be a lite time of collecting 50's, 60's and 70's stuff and small kiosks, gasstations and pumps a couple has put i all up on their farm next to their house. It is a café and they also had a restaurant with at least a working bär and a small cinema. All stuffed with things to look at. People find their way there for a god cup of coffe, cakes, icecream and prawnsandwiches in this fantastic place of memories and nostalgy. There was a small clothes shop as well and some of the vintage clothes was for sale. I will have to ask them to sell vintage jewelry there....
I went there with my teenagers who really found it interesting. He is interested in tecnical stuff and was impressed by some old times clever solutions to things.
Unfortunately someone had played too much on the Rock-Ola jukebox so it was out of order but they were going to have it repaired so next time we will enjoy it. Because we will go there again. Even if it is a small place there were so much of interesting bits and pieces to look at so we need to go back.
I was impressed by their effort to save and show these things to the public and I can also see how genius it is for a collector to build up a small world of your favourite things and invite the rest of the world to come to yours... :)
Enjoy the photos. If you are ever around here is a link :
