The former wheat mill in Riihikoski now serves as a charming summer cafe and a marketplace for vintage goods. The Old Wheat Mill is located right in the center of Riihikoski in Pöytyä, along a beautiful country road. The charming excursion destination is only about half an hour’s drive from Turku.
The current owner of the Old Wheat Mill, Petteri Uusalo, is an avid collector of vintage goods. His collection started to grow so big he needed to find a proper location for all his vintage treasures. When he was offered an opportunity to buy the Old Wheat Mill, the solution was obvious.
Initially, the Old Wheat Mill only served as a storage place for Petteri’s vintage collection. However, it turned out very quickly that people were very interested in seeing what the Old Wheat Mill in hid inside. All the vintage treasures presented in the mill created a unique atmosphere worth exhibiting, so the Old Wheat Mill started to open its doors to the visitors as well.
At first, the vintage-lovers had to settle for the fact that the vintage goods in the mill were only on display and not for sale. After numerous requests and as the collection continued to grow, Petteri Uusalo finally ended up putting his vintage collection items on sale for the public.
