    Systrarnas Loppis & Café in Uddevalla, Sweden

    Flea Market & Café on a Member’s Farm near Uddevalla

    We have a special invitation to member Jeff Cabot's farm near Uddevalla where his daughters Emily and Alexandra run a very popular weekend loppis (flea market) plus café in the barn.

    * Feel free to bring a picnic if you’d like a meal before tasting the café's wonderful bakery goods!
    * Feel free to bring things to donate to the fleamarket. Those who do so may get free fika!
    *
    We’ll have postcards, addresses, and stamps available as well as information about Residence Based Taxation and other issues you might want to write to Congress about!

    Driving Directions: From Torp Köpcentrum (on the E6), take route 161 about 2.3 km towards Utby, Lanesund, and Lysekil. Turn left at Tåbergsvägen and follow the signs.

    * We may rent a van and we'll be happy in any case to help coordinate rides. However, there is a direct bus (kontoladdning 119:-)!

    Bus Directions: Double-check with Västtrafik, but bus 841 towards Lysekil via Ljungskile is scheduled to leave Göteborg on Sunday at 14:21. Get off at Utby stop at about 15:36, take the tunnel under the road and continue south about 800 meters to the red barn.
    A return bus is scheduled to leave Utby at 18:25 and arrive Göteborg at 19:43. A later bus leaves 20:25 and arrives 21:40.

    Here’s a map and other info.

    Please RSVP (even tentatively) ASAP to Carry Cooper

    ===================================

    About Systrarnas Loppis och Café
    Sisters' Fleamarket and Café is a summer activity in a rural setting, just outside Uddevalla. You can walk in the garden and find things in various fleamarket sheds or just sit back and have a snack and enjoy the farm animals.

    The Sisters
    Emily and Alexandra Cabot started Sisters' Fleamarket and Café in the summer of 2011 when they wanted to create their own summer job, and it has just grown since then. You may meet the whole Cabot family: mother Yvonne, father Jeff, and big sister Caroline, all of whom sometimes help with the fleamarket; and sometimes grandmother and grandfather too, who like to see what their grandchildren are up to.

    The café is run by Alexandra who did pastry training at Agnebergsgymnasiet (high school) in Uddevalla and makes wonderful pastries.
    Emily handles the fleamarket which is constantly being replenished with new finds.

    The Farm
    Sisters’ Fleamarket and Café is on the farm where the sisters grew up. The main location is the large barn, where you can find both old and new things as well as the café. Weather permiting, you're welcome to take your food and drink out in the yard. The fleamarket also consists of many other farm sheds which are refilled with goods throughout the summer.

    Animals
    The family has always had a great interest in animals. Among others, you can meet rabbits, sheep, lambs, the pot-bellied pig Ingemar and Democratic donkey Ior, all of whom will watch you as you walk around the fleamarket.

    ========================

    Come join us in Uddevalla (and bring your friends)!

    If there's anything further we can do to help you express your political concerns, please let us know!
