Right after a couple of Days at Stockholm furniture and light fair I headed back to the North again, It was time for Jokkmokks market. This year they are celebrating 410 years. The temperature was only -15 C when I arrived and I was enjoying being back again, breathing fresh clean air. Focus this year for the market was diversity.
I had a refreshing cup of homemade Tea at Viddernas Café made from local herbs, this one with roseroot. Viddernas hus. For Lunch I stopped by Samernas restaurang where Greta Huuva was cooking renköttsoppa med blodpalt and renskav med mos, I ordered renköttsoppan med blodpalt which was great (reindeer meat soup with reindeer blood palt).
There was ofcourse the yearly planned shopping, reindeer meat, jewelry, a new wool shawl and a pair of warm winter boots.
Erica Huuva is one of my favorite jewelry designers and she is also this year Formbärare i Norrbotten nominated by Svensk Form Norrbotten. Svensk Form. This year she had some new silver jewelry favorites that I fell in love with. Erica Huuva. Web.
“I never thought it would be this Cold” An exhibition by students Swedish for immigrants. An exhibition about snow, ice and cold temperatures.
Keeping warm this Winter. These new precious wool and fur garments will keep me warm.
As always, it was great seeing old friends again.
