    Hello all, this is my first post. Hope you will like it.

    I visited an abandoned paint shop somewhere in the northern parts of Sweden, first during june 2010 and a second time this february. Long ago this Paint Shop was thriving and a key part of the community which it was located in. It was a family business that came to an abrupt halt when the owner got severely ill and was forced to shut the doors.

    When i visited in 2010 it had been closed for one year and work has begun to clear out the shop. When i visited in february all that could be sold to a discount had been sold and the shop would never open again. What makes it a bit spooky is that all the machinery is left, paint mixers, cash registers, computers and such.

    Hope you like the pictures.

    The shop actually closed around 2008-ish and then remained intact until 2010 when everything was sold off.
    I visited a couple of times after it was closed 2008 and it was magic :D

    The dust keeps piling up, i looked thru the window a couple of months ago and its still in the same condition. Its a shame but if it stays untouched it will look awesome in 5-6 years..
