Second-Hand Shops in Södermalm and Östermalm

متاجر البضائع المستعملة

Sweden is a top scorer when it comes to sustainability: from waste separation, e-cars and a great consciousness about the environment. This engagement seems to have no limit, and it also spreads on to a responsible way of handling used goods. Especially Stockholm seems to be a pioneer, and this rings true in the many second-hand shops that you can find all over town. Here, you will find a variety that can hardly be topped. Have a stroll around and try to find some bargains.

Södermalm is the place to be when it comes to second-hand shops. Here, you will find them all around, especially along Hornsgatan. Check out Herr Judit, Beyond Retro and many other stores that offers clothes and textiles as well as with books and decoration items. The next stop will be Götgatan, with shops like Humana (with a pretty cool atmosphere) and Myrorna (with lots of china, CDs and DVDs). In this street, you should have a look to your left when heading down south. Here, you will spot different shops in every other street: Åsögatan (with POP Stockholm), Bondegatan (with Lisa Larsson’s Second-hand shop) and Gotlandsgatan (with Modern Retro).

Shops are all around

Today, second hand shops pop up everywhere around town, and you will find good ones in the city centre – along Odengatan and Sveavägen – as well. Many shops (such as beyond Retro and Myrorna) have different stores, and it is definitely worth it to try them all. This is the beauty about second hand shops: you will never know what you will find as every shops is different.

And do not forget the markets

Do also take advantage of the many flea markets happening in Stockholm. Try to visit the one at Karlaplan, next to beautiful Djurgården, and Hornstulls Marknad as well. When having a walk around, you may find other hidden spots as well. Do not forget to tell us about them! 😉

Hejsan! I am Lara, a German Newbie to Sweden and a recent business studies and German graduate from Mannheim University. Since my semester abroad in Växjö nearly two years ago, Sweden did not let me go, as I always wanted to come back. And now, I finally will: having a bachelor’s degree in my pocket and a bucket list filled with adventures, my first stop will be a three months lasting internship in Gothenburg. As much as I am looking forward to gathering experiences in working life, I am also excited about exploring this great city with all its culture, nature and people. I hope you enjoy my impressions as much as I do. Vi hörs!
