Where to find Stockholm's best vintage and second-hand shops
Updated 18 Feb 2019
Second-hand is a fun and sustainable way to bag a bargain - but it's not always easy knowing where to look. To make your hunt a little easier, we've rounded up the best vintage boutiques in Stockholm, with masses of one-off, pre-loved clothes to add to your wardrobe. Södermalm is a well-known second-hand mecca, but Östermalm, Vasastan and other parts of town also have some real gems for anyone looking to shop second-hand and vintage in Stockholm.
Shop with a clear conscience
Popular among vintage aficionados, this store's more than 200 square metres are packed with clothes, accessories, bags and shoes. The well-organised shelves with clothes from labels such as YSL, Gucci and Moschino are particularly hard to stay away from. What's more, all profits go to charity.
