Hoptimists. The Hoptimist was designed by furniture designer Hans Gustav Ehrenreich in 1968. We had a couple originals in our house growing up. One big, one small. Today, I still have the larger one on display in my home. Not sure if it was the nostalgia or the Hoptimists doing their job and spreading a smile. The wooden ones are especially nice.
Even carpet samples looked fabulous there.
Loved this multi-coloured knobby rug.
Tactile floor cushions.
Oodles of lighting options.
The perfect coat rack for me!
View from the top floor.
Very Danish window.
We loved that store!
Found another shop sharing my name! I look exhausted here... but hopefully not as ramshackle as that awning!
Busy shopping area... Lots of tourists like us!
Nuts and dried fruit.
Lovely pedestrian areas.
Made me happy to see bikes galore! Made me miss my bike.Illum next. This was more like the department stores we have seen in any city, but still a very nice place.
This beautiful old building houses another large department store, Magasin.
Some stylish store fronts...
and beautiful old buildings.
