Last week I went to Norway to visit friends and family, and decided that this time I was going to do some touristy stuff as well. One of the main things on my to-do-list when I visit a city is to go to thrift stores and flea markets, and Oslo was no exception. Instead of the standard souvenirs I love to find unique local, possibly weird and cheap treasures. So after a lazy Sunday breakfast, my friends and I headed over to the Sunday market at Blå in Oslo.

Every Sunday from 12 to 17 you can go treasure hunting at this charming little market. You can find both homemade and second-hand clothes, jewelery, bags, ceramics, art and more. Blå is located in Brennerivn 9. More pictures and information about the market here. (In Norwegian). By night Blå is a good location for parties and concerts, have a look at the website here for the program.

Happy shopping and don’t forget to taste the homemade waffles!
