We spent the afternoon in Borgå getting some things we need for the boat. We went to several shops and ended up in Tokmanni.
We spotted the buckets and asked what you had to do to get one. It turned out that you had to buy some NIvea products that we needed to buy anyway.
On the way home Irma explained that Tokmanni started the whole Finnish tradition of giving out free buckets, and we have a replica of the original bucket.
When we get home I take the bucket, which we have used in the traditional manner as a shopping bag, and photograph it. We own a piece of Finnish cultural history.
