All things vintage particularly rock in the Zinkensdamm area at Judit Second Hand, and Herr Judit (men’s version) and in the nearby area South of Folkungsgatan (SoFo), at Grandpa and Our Legacy, both men’s favourites. And Beyond Retro fans will find a rather large store just near Zinkensdamm metro station exit.

Like quirky but practical household objects? Stop off at the 10 Swedish Designers (10-gruppen) iconic textile boutique.
You will not make it past 3 stores without a café being in between or even in the store in a lot of cases, so just give in. Södermalmers love their hangout time.
Coffee break? Check out Bruno Götgatsbacken for a fashionable coffee. Have traditional Swedish food in Kvarnen for lunch and consider hipster Urban Deli for a post shopping glass of wine and tapas.
