Kånken

Tomorrow I'm sending my son off to kindergarten with this new yellow Fjällräven Kånken Mini backpack. It's a kid size version of a design classic and a birthday present from us to him. It was originally designed in Sweden in 1978 and is still very much in production, being a best seller all over the world. These bags are great for those little forest trips as they come with a seat pad.


Apart from this warm yellow (my favorite) you can get the Kånken Mini in lots of different colours. Check out the Kånken 30 years website for a fun colour picker, Kånken owners private snaps featuring the bag and lots more.


I might just get me a Kånken myself eventually. A large one, though... Oh, but what colour to pick?

PS. In case you wondered, the garage sale was no success (like so much else these days..). We're not giving up, though – weather permitting, we'll try again next Sunday. This time with some better marketing.

Jeg kasta min blå Kånken sist jeg rydda i boden. Men, den var altså helt utslitt og kjedelig gråblå farge. Gult er mye kulere.
Ha en fin dag.

Ska du rydda ut lite porslin också?? :-) Isåfall kommer jag på söndag!!

Du vet väl säkert om denna sidan redan: http://www.loppemarked.info/

Det är 3 loppisar på østsidan av byn den 18/9: Bøler, Abildsø och Karlsrud skole...

Hei Erica. Takk for tipsene! Det blir tyvärr ikke noe porselen fra meg i denne omgang. Men jeg skal si ifra dersom det blir aktuelt på et senere garasjesalg :-)

Å, det var en flott sekk. Barn trenger flotte sekker.

Også er det spennende hvor viktig logoen er for designen der.

I have a light grey one...I bought it a while back while I was in Sweden and it was special because it was one of a kind in Toronto...but now there is a clothing shop that sells them. Then again, we are hoping to sell the mini in our shop!
