“See you later” Blind peoples handwork - Copenhagen
Vi Ses: “See you later” Blind peoples handwork

“VI SES” in English “See you later”

The name of the shop signals with a nice twist of ironic distance that this is the outlet shop of “Blindes Arbejde“ in English “Blind peoples handwork”

The products in the shop is made by blind people and the shop is run by blind people they use a computer to scan the prices on the product you like to buy and a digital voice tells the price. I do not know if shopkeepers and the computer also speak English but give it a try if you like to support the good work they do.

What to pay: The shop by the way is owned by a foundation, so even if the prices are not as cheep as in the supermarket, no body gets wealthy on your expense.

Address: Valkendorfsgade 3, 1151 København K

Directions: You find the shop if you go from Stroget/Amagertorv up Kobmagergade on the first side street on your left right around the corner
