Yesterday we went to Kierrätyskeskus (Reuse Centre) in Espoo where they sell all of kinds of used things: books, furniture, clothes, toys, decorations, etc. It's close to the Kera train station, and you can reach it by bus, too. After that we had lunch in the nearby Pakistani restaurant Peshawar! Both Kierrätyskeskus and Peshawar have the same address, Kutojantie 3, 02630, Espoo.
From Kierrätyskeskus' site:
“Helsinki Metropolitan Area Reuse Centre provides an alternative to single-use culture. At our stores you will find unique, usable second hand items and learn about environmentally-friendly consumer choices.

Got lucky and found two lovely and cheap books!
A Finnish book about gardening for 4 euros.
Chinese Vegetarian Cooking for 2 euros.
It was very filling! =D
