‘Back to school’ in Poland is not quite it says on the tin. Yes the kids go back on September 1st, but two hours later, after a short meet-and-greet with their new teacher, there they are again at the mall with a lengthy shopping list of school supplies needed for the next day!

The Mivo store, located in Blue City, specializes in children’s footwear. What’s not in store can be ordered from the extensive collection online. Geox, Ecco and Clarks are available at competitive prices as well as Converse and a funky collection of kids VANS!
Smart School Bag
The right baggage is essential to your child’s good health. Sturdy, spacious, weather-proof bags on wheels that don’t look like grandma’s shopping trolley are the criteria and ‘Smart Schoolbag’ ticks all those boxes. Starting at €79 they’re not cheap but they are ready to stand the test of a Polish Education.
Despite the advance of technology the list of stationary and accessory requirements for a well-organized student remains much the same: pen, pencil, snazzy pencil case, eraser, rulers and a calculator make the shortlist followed by the bully-stabbing ‘safety’ compass! Practically everything your child needs to look and feel top of the class!
Back to School Grand Bazar
City markets are where Polish designers showcase and sell trending fashion and accessories. If your family favor original, handmade and local design then check this event on Saturday September 5th. Hosted inside Bracka 25, for further details search them out on Facebook.
