Södermalm charity shops
Södermalm’s wide Hornsgatan street is a must-visit for keen bargain hunters. Boasting a number of vast charity shops, some spreading over several floors, you can happily while away a couple of hours so searching for gems. Well-presented and often with vintage sections and colour-coordinated rails, these aren’t your usual back-street junk shops. Stockholm’s Stadsmission, raising funds for vulnerable people in the city, has nine stores throughout the city, and Hornsgatan’s is a bright and modern treasure trove full of attractive items looking for new homes.
Near Södermalm’s Slussen subway station, Emmaus is another large charity shop offering men’s, women’s and children’s clothes, as well as textiles, crockery, books and music. Head downstairs next door to the main entrance and you’ll find the best of the vintage donations presented in a boutique-style store. As well as vintage dresses, jackets, scarves and shoes, there are also bargain basksts, a vast array of accessories, kitsch homewares and even collectable pin-up cards.
If you’re a fan of the London and Brighton warehouse stores, plan a visit to one or all of Stockholm’s three Beyond Retro shops while you’re in the city. There are two in Södermalm, but the biggest is located in the city’s central shopping street, Drottninggatan, where you’ll also find Sweden’s best high-street stores. Always on-trend, the window displays offer great outfit inspiration.
Down the road from Beyond Retro on Drottninggatan Stockholm’s large Weekday store, home to the super-cool Cheap Monday brand, also boasts grungey vintage for men and women. Head up to the third floor if trendy industrial design and art college fashion is your bag.
If you’re up for a bargain hunt challenge, visit the Sunday flea market in the centre of the city, in front of Stockholm’s grand Concert Hall. As well as cheap new goods, stalls offer second-hand china, furniture and clothing, including a good selection of warm vintage coats.
