Trabant Markveien was our first shop. It is a cosy little place in the heart of Grünerløkka.
Our main passion is vintage clothes. We stock a huge selection of the best vintage for women and men in our three shops; Trabant Markveien, Robot and Trabant Sentrum. As well as the vintage clothes we also sell:
- POP - A funky retro label from the UK.
- Mod style "Smart and Clean" from Italy.
- Ecological and consciously produced Monkey Genes.
- Redesign from PreLoved in Canada and Globe Hope from Finland.
- Black Spot sneakers from AdBusters.
- Rethink - and organic and redesign label from Norwegian designer Veronica Glitch.
- Monkey Biz bead animals from Cape Town's largest township Khayelitsha.
A little Trabant history
In 2006 we were told that we had to move out because the estate agents next door wanted to take over our location. We eventually found a new location, just across the road in Markveien. We called the new shop Robot. A few days after we signed the contact for Robot the landlord of Trabant told us the new tenant had gone bankrupt and that he would let us stay for another year. It meant having two shops in the same street, but we decided to give it a go and hired some employees. Both shops were a great success so we decided to ask the landlord of Trabant for an extension on our contract. It was at this point that he told us that our new neighbours Nille wanted to take over little Trabant so they could make their store bigger. We have realised that being a little store it was very easy to be pushed around by the chain stores.
