Discovering the colourful and fun designs of Copenhagen's Flying Tiger

In Copenhagen for the weekend, living a Travelife, I discovered a fun, quirky and yet stylish store called Flying Tiger.

What an interesting name, and certainly what an interesting shop.

It was very popular because The Flying Tiger sold just about everything, and the prices were very reasonable, especially for that part of the world.

Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway are among the most expensive countries in the world to visit.

When I'm here, I find it's better to stop converting the prices of everything into dollars, as you'll end up feeling everything is way too overpriced.

Except for Flying Tiger, that is.

The designs were generally colourful and happy -- very much in the style of marimekko, which is one of the most famous and successful design brands from Scandinavia.

Marimekko stores can be found in stylish cities all over the world.

However, for those who like a more streamlined look, Flying Tiger also had a lot of items in monotone, including very cool-looking black journals and sketchbooks, and black-and-white kitchen equipment and accessories.

Unfortunately, when I looked at the photos on my iPod, it seems I only took photos of the colourful stuff, even if in real life everything I tote around is in black, including my luggage, my traveling handbags, and now my six portable devices.

I'd never heard of the store until I set foot in Denmark a few days ago. But apparently it's become a big lifestyle sensation especially among young people.

Today there are Flying Tiger shops all over Europe and Asia, and the brand continues to expand.


As for me, I picked up such a hodgepodge of items at the Flying Tiger store in downtown Copenhagen on that visit, including a small black journal for my Travelife, a large traveling exercise ball with a pump, some colourful cute purses, and a tea strainer.

Yes, that's how varied the items were at Flying Tiger, and none of these broke the bank.

Just another nice find, in Copenhagen for a nice summer weekend in my never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
