I can’t tell you how good the shopping in Stockholm is. You are all going to have to go see for yourselves. I was blown away by the little independents in Stockholm, I guess its partly to do with the fact that the UK high street has become so homogonous and frankly dull. I’ve already posted about my awesome visit to Svenskt Tenn here but I thought you might enjoy a quick snoop around some other stores.
I was particularly taken with the streets just South of Folkungagatan (known as SoFo), which are packed with interesting cool and creative shops.
My picks of the independents in Stockholm
Grandpa – homes, vintage and fashion a favourite in SoFo
Nitty Gritty – For your fashion fix and also good range of candles
Malmsten – Swedish designed and made interiors store
Welcome – Stocks Our Legacy Swedish designed men’s wear
Mr Mudd and Mr Gold – edgy men’s denim brands
Sivletto – glorious 1950’s rockabilly charm
Brandstationen – my favourite vintage store
Papercut – stock up on design magazines here
