Today is Scandi Mini's final day on Blythe Road (we will be open from 11-17 so please pop by!). When I first took on the shop, back in spring 2015, Cornelia was only 2.5 years old and Wilhelm was 6. Back then I had been running Scandi Mini for 5 years online, the first 3 from my own house and a further two from our warehouse, also in Brook Green. I desperately needed an office, and from the very first beginning and for almost 1.5 year that is what our shop was, as well as a showroom, which was only open a few hours a week.

Say hello to our new logo! Together with graphic designer Eleanor D'eath we have designed a new logo for Scandi Mini. It is simpler, in a monotone black, using a Scandi-inspired font. We have completely removed the duck with the crown, which, no longer fits with our new direction.

It’s easy to forget how prevalent cotton is in our everyday lives, from our clothes, to furniture, towels to babies nappies, cotton is a material that we are all so familiar with. But did you know, that unlike organic food products, cotton products don’t need to be certified in order to be described as organic. Meaning you could buy a product described as organic, but in reality it could include as little as 5% organic cotton.

Guess what? Next week Scandi Mini will be turning 8 years. 8!! How crazy is that? 8 years means 8 years of selling Mini Rodini, 7.5 of Bobo Choses and many many more of your favourite brands.

Can you believe that Scandi Mini has been going for over 8 years? If someone would have told me that what started as a website + 10 boxes of Scandinavian children’s clothes in my spare bedroom would turn into a warehouse, a shop, 150 brands and a 5 person team I would not have believed them. I am so grateful for everything we’ve learnt and achieved since then!
