Folk & Røvere - "The pleasant house"- Norway

Folk & Røvere is an exciting shop in the pedestrian area of the former Olympic city of Lillehammer in Norway.  
It is considered by many as "the pleasant house", because of the fact that here you find products which are not found everywhere.  
The name of the store is because it once was an old police station and in the backyard was the prison. (Folk & Røvere means "People & Robbers). So for hundreds of years, people and robbers has been walking in and out "of the shop".The shop sells children's clothes, toys and interior as well as jewelry, tea, sweets and the delicious products of Nicholas Vahe.  
Folk & Røvere is on Facebook and has his own blog: www.folkrovere.blogspot.com.

Even puppies love House Doctor

Does it get any cuter??! We don't think so! House Doctor is for everybody - even puppies love House Doctor - which is quite obvious in this situation...

The breed is Bichon Frise which is an allergy friendly dog and does not shed. This litter of 5 puppies - 2 females and 3 males - was born on 30th March 2011 (on the picture they are 7 weeks). All of them now have a new wonderful familie, but a new litter of puppies are expected again spring 2012.
