Morjens. And welcome to forums. Here's pretty much how it works in Finland:

Finland is not full of places to get good equipment but there are some good ones. As I own one shop I try to be objective and still give you links to other shops as well. All the shops given here you can trust. I'm not fan of saying bad things about any of our shops. Maybe other people will let you know their experiences. I'll just focus on giving you options here.

Online shops

www.markkupurho.fi - Markku Purho is the biggest importer for the whole country. Basically everything from Mr. Babache or Henry's goes first to him and then to other places selling items. Basically he sells only by post. So you can order online and the gear will come by post to you. This is good if there's no shop in your own city. Prices are good and shipping is fast.

www.kumiankka.com - Sirkus Kumiankka, by jugglers for jugglers. This is the one I'm working for. If you want big selection and the cheapest models we probably are not your best choice. We focus on selling things we know most about and think that are good quality. Also we are trying to import things other shops don't have. So if you want something special we might have it. If you want to support diabolo community this is the place. Same people who own this place organize events and teach a lot. Also if you need advice I'm happy to help out online, meetings or in the events. Also if you live in Tampere shipping might not be necessary, you can also pm me. Enough said, http://shop.kumiankka.com

Local shops

Aprilli shops are selling items in Helsinki, Jyväskylä, Tampere and Kuopio. They basically sell Markku Purho's stuff. Adresses and opening hours are here: http://www.aprilli.fi/PublishedService?pageID=3&action=view&groupID=313&OpenGroups=313

Punanaamio is a big chain which also sells juggling equipment around different cities. They have shops in Helsinki, Turku and Tampere. http://punanaamio.fi/

There used to be an awesome shop in Turku which was also held by one juggler. It is called Sirkussirkus. http://www.sirkussirkus.com/ But currently Kaitsu is traveling around so the shop is closed. But when he gets back he deserves our support.

Pilailupuoti is yet another chain of shops that sells juggling stuff. Shops following cities: Helsinki, Seinäjoki, Kuusankoski, Rauma, Turku, Oulu, Jyväskylä and Lahti. More info about products and places from http://www.pilailupuoti.fi/yhteys/

As you can see there are many shops and most of them sell carnival stuff. Basically 3 big chains and two small shops. That's how we roll. Also www.diaboloseura.fi and www.fdc2012.org are good place to check out diabolo related events and stuff. If anything just ask here or if you want to speak finnish you can always send me some private messages. Have fun while playing.

Also Superkauppa is having some juggling products. Most of them are (at least by look) something to be considered as toys, but there is also some Taibolos available at the moment.

They only sell by post.
