Many items in The Swedish Flicka shop are new. However, I do offer some gently used and vintage items that are of excellent quality.

▪️A very good review:
“What a wonderful little book! Funny, poignant, and full of good advice that’s useful at any stage of life.”
“Initially I was disappointed with the book; there seemed to be nothing new to learn, decluttering-wise. But as I read on, I found myself wanting to spend more time with this author; she's so endearing! I finished the book with a big smile on my face -- not what you'd expect from a book with "death" in the title! Very short book, well worth a look.”
▪️Just one more:
“Swedish death cleaning is the practice of decluttering your life prior to death. This book tells the story of the authors own death cleaning, as well as some stories from her past.
As I read (the audiobook is available as well…listened actually)…to this book while hiking in the Austrian mountains (the audiobook takes less then 3 hours), I could not help to think of all the people in my life who have passed away. I could not help but to remember the difficult task of cleaning out my grandparents’ house.”
This book, although being primarily about the art of death cleaning itself, is also about life, and the inevitabilty of death. The author offers practical advice for decluttering your life, so that loved ones will not be burdened with the task.
I would recommend this book for people of any age who (like myself) tend to keep far more possessions than necessary.”
Also included in this book are 3 amazing recipes.
This is a perfect add-on for any Swedish gift-but you will, no doubt, want to read it yourself, first!

Patchwork Scarf Care:
Spot clean if possible. Please follow the directions on the items tag. It will direct you to wash on delicate in a mesh/ lingerie bag or tied pillow case and make sure the water is cool.
Do NOT put the Patchwork Scarf in the dryer-let it air dry on a hanger. You may iron the cotton pieces on the front side but not the fleecy squares or the reverse fleecy side or they will most assuredly melt and stick to the iron.
There is just no way to know how each washing machine will affect the items, however, they are all sturdily made and should stand the test of time. Just give proper attention prior to washing and that will ensure that it stays in fine condition.
YES! We make everything in small batches here, so even if we use similar fabrics and patterns, and square placement, there will never ever be two Patchwork Scarves that are exactly alike. So each one is truly a unique masterpiece!
You can throw the Rag Rug into the washing machine on gentle cycle with as little agitation as possible, and air dry over a stair banister OR chair back until completely dry. However, a very old fashioned & traditional way of cleaning a Rug is the freezing snow method. On a cold, clear day (25°F/ - 3° or colder) with at least several inches of fresh powder snow, take the Rug outside and leave it for a couple of hours until it has frozen. Lay the stiff carpet in the snow and whack the exposed surface with a broom. Shake the rug out, turn it over on a fresh patch of snow, and beat the other side. If you wait for a cold, dry day, the rug will barely become wet when you clean it this way. Just brush off any loose snow before you take it inside.

Patchwork Blankie Care:
We understand baby accessories require lots of washing. So to extend the life of your Blankie, we suggest washing it on a delicate cycle. It has already been washed and dried here at our studio so we hope your washing machine is as gentle as ours.
