Södermalm

Södermalm is for the discerning retro shopper. It’s got a whole lot of cafés, restaurants, bars and rows of boutiques with a bohemian mix of vintage, independent labels, and Swedish mainstream designers.

Vintage shopping in Stockholm, “Herr Judit”

Vintage

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.

Mainstream funky

Find Swedish trend setting stores J. Lindeberg, Weekday and Monki all close to each other at Götgatsbacken. And for a quirky hat store, check out Hattbaren grundat 1917. Acne lover? Take a walk down to their mini boutique on Nytorgsgatan.

Mini mall

Pop into Bruno Götgatsbacken for Whyred and Filippa K shops. And the Aplace store is a favourite for fashion forward brands ranging from Ann-Sofie Back and Our Legacy to The Local Firm.

Independent

For small independent up-and-coming Swedish designers as well as more established names like Carin Wester and Diana Orving, shop at Tjallamalla. And rockabilly-deluxe can be found at Sivletto. 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.

When?

Stores usually open around 10.00 a.m. and close at 18.00 with later opening hours on Thursday and Friday. Larger stores open on Sunday.  Check store websites.

Getting around
Getting around Stockholm couldn’t be easier. It is a compact city with excellent, bus, rail and local underground connections between the main shopping and other districts. Walking around Stockholm is also a sheer pleasure, but remember those comfortable shoes and water bottle. The best way to see Stockholm though is by bicycle and you can rent at many locations around the city.

Money
As regards money, lucky for you the Swedish crown has rarely been cheaper than it is now, especially against the Euro – so there probably hasn’t been a better time to shop in Stockholm.

Opening hours
10.00 am – 18.00 pm on weekdays and Saturdays, and most of Stockholm’s big stores are also open on Sundays.
