A baked potato shop?
Translating this was an issue as I had to type it all rather than copy/paste!
But it looks like a beautiful day. Glad you enjoyed it! B-)
No, not baked potato! Just potato I think. In Sweden we have this forms of shops whitout someone in the shop. We take what we need, and pay in some kind of locked boxes. Egg and potato is most freqvently. Perhaps Anna can told more just about this shop. I lived about 250 km from Anna, and we have this kind of shops here too. Stjersunds castle have an egg-shop like this! ( http://turistmal.se/?index=item&id=247 ) If You are i Sweden is worth a visit!
Oh… I get it.
We have them on occasion here too. Well… I say ‘On occasion’… They are really rare! I have only ever seen them at farms though so…
We call them honesty shops. You take what you want/need and leave some money in a box. I think its mainly to serve the local community rather than make a profit… If you get what I mean?
Yes, I think so. It is the same here. More like a services to th people who lived in the area an to make profit.
Always strange when you read these comments backwards!!! Have o idea what you guys are talking about!
Pia, this Place is on Wärmdö! it was soo nice- and it was such a Beautiful day too!
Its like Pia said- a Little “shop”-open 24/7- and you just go in there- take what you need and put your Money in a cup!
This Place I found out on an Island outside stockholm-and it was a Beautiful farm with lots of things for sale! In this Little shed- they sold potatoes and rhuburb, lemonade, rootbeer, chips and some Spices.All organic and grown at that farm!
I took an example from my neighberhood! And Stjersunds castle is really worth a visit for anyone 😉
If I could I have come and visit Wärmdö. Is it an island in Mälaren?
Känner igen stjärnsund- måste googla vad det är!
Ja, värmdö ligger ca 25 minuter ifrån Stockholm! Det finns broar så man slipper färjor!
Those ideas are really rare overt here now. I was talking to my mum and she remembers them being all over when she was a young girl.
I guess the world changes. It’s a shame we can’t trust each other now. B-(
I know- its sad really.
But I guess had this Little shop been in the middle of the city- it would not last long…this Place is out on an island- so its not to easy to get there!
What a great picture, and a great find!
It was! They had some great organic stuff in there! Just up for grabs and then leave your Money in a cup!
The “honor system”. How cool!
I LOVE it!
Så fint! Var finns den här?
Det är ute på Värmdö- värmdö musteri! En underbar gård och musteri-med ett cafe to die for! Och folk kommer dit med egna äpplen och får gjort om till must! Dom gör även egen rapsolja! Så det är ett väldigt trevligt besök!
The look has some pretty quality
Though I wonder what this is exactly
This is a Little “shop” on a farm ( on an Island outside Stockholm ) where they sell vegetables, fruits and other Products from the farm- you take what you want and leave your Money in a cup! ( a kind of a honesty shop! )
A Lovely idea that works outside the city!
How cool is this? Wow! Nice place to have a shop.
yes that is such a wonderful Place! and the honesty shop made my heart warm!
I can see why. 🙂
Åååååå vilket ställe!
Ja, jag föll pladask!
Måste snart åka dit igen!
Fler sådana ställen här i världen tack!
Ja, det hade varit underbart!
Ja, verkligen! 🙂
Scandinavian and Irish people all love potatoes!
yes, we do! and all the yummy things you can do with it!
In the UK, we have a lot of little wayside tables or mini-shops, mostly outside houses. They have a box to put money in and sell eggs, vegetables or plants or homemade jam.
I LOVE that idea! And I love it that people can trust in each other!
Reblogged this on Haus in der Eifel, furniture for sale.
it’s great to have the old world honesty
In such of a world of uncertainty
I would love to live some place like that
As always Sheldon
Sheldon, I do agree- its not often you see honesty and decent people and things happening. THis was just a great Place- whish there were more of this!
It is comforting to learn that such a place can still exist in this world. Perhaps there is hope for us after all. Thank you for sharing.
I know- it brings hope for us all! Have a nice Sunday!
