Minimossen is the first recycling mall in Finland. We sell carefully selected recycled items. Minimossen is like a treasure trove when you are looking for cool things carefully treated with love. At Minimossen you can shop in a smart and sustainable way. The waste company Stormossen is the initiator of Minimossen.
You can bring combustible waste, wood, plastic, cardboard and glass packaging, metal, textiles, paper, ceramics, tiles, window glass, small electrical appliances and hazardous waste. You can also donate smaller items for re-use that are intact and clean. Larger quantities of waste or large items, such as furniture, can be brought to the recycling station at Sammonkatu.
Yesterday once more
Yesterday once more sells vintage clothing and products made from recycled materials based on a sustainable concept.
“The textile industry in particular pollutes the earth and consumes resources. Choosing a high-quality vintage garment is an easy and stylish way to buy responsibly,” entrepreneur Marianne Poola says.
The woman behind the beautiful bouquets and flower arrangements at Eden Flowers is Jennie McCrea. With her knowledge, passion and flowers she is hoping to spread joy through the bouquets.
At Minimossen Jennie also sells trendy houseplants, recycled vases, flowerpots and other gift items.
Repop vintage is selling upcycled and restored furniture, light fixtures and interior decoration items. In the Repop shop you will also find a separate section for furniture and light fixtures from the 60s and 70s.
The company is run by Martti Kass and Stacey Thomas, who wish to honour the craftsmanship of the old masters through their work.
Minimossen x FRC
Some of the stuff that passes through Stormossen goes to charity via one of Minimossen’s partners. In the shop you will find the stand of FRC, the proceeds of which go directly to the Finnish Red Cross.
“We are delighted to be a part of Minimossen”, say Maarit Rintamäki, Head of service at the FRC charity shop in Vaasa, and media manager Mayya Ratsuk.
Ann Bäck designs sustainable products for the home. Sustainability, ethics and keeping the production close have always been important to her.
At Minimossen Ann Bäck sells, among other things, compostable dishcloths. She looks forward to the collaboration with the recycling mall, which she describes as “something uplifting in a neat packaging with great values”.
New & Old by Maena
Behind New & Old by Maena stands entrepreneur Maria Nabb. She has been designing and fixing her clothes since childhood. “As a problem solver, I love the feeling of recycling, being creative and coming up with new ideas” says Maria Nabb.
At Minimossen she sells clothes and accessories, which are made from recycled textiles.
Design Kaje gives old and much-loved objects a new life and a new function. Out of love for old objects and their history and with a pinch of Ostrobothnian madness, the furniture carpenter and interior designer Jenni Kaustinen started Deign Kaje.
At Minimossen, Design Kaje sells unexpected recycled things such as lamps of old desk phones, speakers of books and jewellery made of porcelain.
