Finnport Fine Finnish Gifts was established in 1975 and is located in the Finnish district of Thunder Bay, Ontario just down the street from the legendary Hoito Restaurant.
Diana Milton and Mona Pitkanen, purchased the business in 1997 from the founder of the store, Tarmo Pihlaja.
Mona was born in Helsinki and still has many family ties in Finland. Finnish is spoken both at home and at Finnport on a daily basis. Diana, a third generation Finlander, is also proud of her Finnish heritage.
We love the fact that we don't have to sell our products.... they sell themselves with their timeless beauty and design. Not only do we carry Finnish products but we also sell many other Nordic and Scandinavian designers as well! There may also be products in our store that might not be shown on our website, always check back to see what new arrivals that we have in stock and products that will be arriving soon!
