Nostalgia rules

When we were last in Denmark, we visited this old shop. It is decorated much like in the olden days and they have loads of old bottles, packaging, toys, tins and loads more.

The place is called Bindeballe Købmandsgård and it is in a teeny tiny town that feels miles away from anywhere. And it kind of is. But it is also fairly close to Billund airport and it is well worth a detour if you're in that neck of the woods.

It was lots of fun to look at all the old packaging. Most of it was stuff my parents remember from their childhood etc. But there was also some stuff that I remember. Which my mum took as a chance to tell me, repeatedly, that I am old. The nerve, eh!? ;-)


Old coffee tins and packages. Aren't they cool? I am sorry that some of the photos are a bit blurry. It was difficult taking pictures in the place because one room was quite dark, but the next one had large windows. I felt a bit sneaky taking pictures so I wasn't going to try and get Perfect Pictures lest someone came and told me off. ;-)


How cute is that?


This one is seriosuly blurr (in case you hadn't noticed!) but I hope you can still appreciate the funny fellow on the 'Adamas Cigarettes' poster.

This place also sold all kinds of old-fashioned beer, toys, household goods and sweets. I had to get some of those! (hello rustne søm, dameskrå og spejderhagl!) Which of course was yet another opportunity for my mum to tease me.

I hope this embedded thing loads properly - you should be seeing a Google Streetview view of the place.
