In a city built on the water, there are naturally many spa and recreational opportunities. Visit Sturebadet and you’ll enjoy a luxury spa milieu from the 1800s with pool, exercise equipment, and spa treatments from head to toe. Sturebadet is situated in the shopping galleria Sturegallerian in the very centre of Stockholm.

At Judits and Herr Judit you can find both new and second hand fashion, especially from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, at either store – men’s or women’s – both located on the same block. All the clothes are in great condition and hand selected by the competent staff.


Dior, Chanel and Gucci are among the brands they sell along with second-hand Swedish labels and items that fit into their assortment. Prices vary from expensive to cheap, but nothing is overpriced.

Judits and Herr Judit are two of Stockholm’s most respected vintage stores and offer huge variety. Studded punk leather jackets and preppy bowties are displayed along with suits, tweed suits, silk dresses, designer shoes, bags and sccessories.

These are the ideal places for those who don’t want to sift through piles of old garments at flea markets yet want trendy vintage in great condition. Take your time and you will find some amazing bargains and new favorites!

Stockholm is a great place for shopping, and a perfect place to discover that Swedish fashion and design is so much more than skinny jeans and strangely named bookshelves from Ikea.

At Stureplan, in the very heart of Stockholm, you’ll find Sturegallerian – an artful diversity of selected shopping, contemporary dining and modern lifestyle. Centrally located, it is a haven for all fashionistas, bookworms, gourmets, audiophiles, café hounds, interior design enthusiasts and other followers of quality. But it is also a natural meeting place, melting pot and a hub for city living both day and night with pubs, nightclubs, leisure and recreation.

A collection of Sweden’s foremost designers invite you to come and have a look at this fall’s trends and new arrivals, mingle, get exclusive offers and attend a range of different activities throughout the evening.

Fashion Night stores of Bibliotekstan and Sturegallerian are open between 5 PM and 10 PM.

Today I’m gonna present a couple of golden spots in Stockholm when it comes to shopping second hand and vintage. So on the days when the sun has decided to take a pause and you’re tired of hanging around in different museums, this is one of the best ways to spend your hours in the capital of Sweden.

Dusty Deco: Has some of the coolest vintage stuff you can find. The owner travels around the world to find just the typical Dusty Deco-items and some of the items you won’t find anywhere else in Stockholm. The staff is super nice and helpful and if you’re looking for some special item that they don’t have, ask them if they can help you – cause if it’s possible to find, they’ll find it for you.

Grandpa: Here you find the dream combination of fashion, furniture and home styling. Take a visit to both their shops in Stockholm so that you don’t miss the opportunity to own a original item in your home.

Brandstationen: This old fire station is now one of the hottest vintage spots in Stockholm.

Gamla lampor: The store name “Old lamps” says it all. Here you can find hundreds of different lamps in retro and vintage style. A must on your shopping tour.

Myrorna: This is the second hand shop that is filled with junk but where you might find the steal of the day if your looking hard enough. Don’t feel like you’ve shopped to much. Myrornas profit goes directly to charity.

You shouldn’t do this if: You don’t like the smell of used things.
You should do this if: You would like your home to look like the inside of an interior magazine.
