Vintage jewelry shopping in/around Oslo

by dmesserly

Hello,

I'm going to Oslo in 2 weeks for Syttende Mai. I am a collector of vintage scandinavian and Viking-design-inspired jewelry.

Can anyone recommend places where I might be able to find such jewelry? I know David-Anderson has Oslo locations, but I'm less interested in new D-A jewelry and more interested in vintage items that are likely to be used.

Thank you for any info you may be able to provide!

There's an antique dealer in Kirkeristen who has quite a lot of jewellery. I don't know the name of it, nor do I know the actual address, so here is how to get to it: Go to Stortorvet, stand with your nose pointing to the church (which is a cathedral, but doesn't look the part), then walk past it on the left side (this street runs parallel with Karl Johan) and continue past the café, down some stairs and voilá, to your right it is.

That does sound a bit dodgy, but I don't think it is :p

Google maps to the rescue: The street it's on is called Kirkeristen (I thought it was just the name of the buildings), and the shop is Esias Solberg.

Hope this helps and that you have a lovely time in Oslo! :-)

Be aware that on "syttende mai" almost everything is closed, more than on "normal" Sundays.

If you stay until the day ater, everything should be open.

Thank you for the responses! I also contacted the David-Anderson company. They told me that their stores carry some vintage jewelry as well.

Travel Tips for Oslo

Oslo Tourist Office

by diocletianvs

Oslo Tourist Office has two main Tourist Information centres. One is situated at the Central Train Station (Jernbanetorget 2) and the main one just opposite the City Hall (Fridtjof Nansens Plass 5).

Here you can get free maps of Oslo, a yearly official tourist guide to Oslo and a monthly brochure "What's on Oslo".

Their friendly staff will answer all your questions and you can also book your accommodation using their services.

It is also possible to buy the "Oslo Pass" (covering public transport and free admission to most museums) and the "Oslo Package" that includes accommodation in one of hotels and the Oslo Pass.

At the price of 280 NOK for 2 days I did not opt for the Oslo Pass: I didn't visit many museums and most of Oslo's attractions are within the walking distance anyway so I simply paid only few individual tram tickets which was cheaper. Check their very useful website for general info on Oslo before you go:

This is one hell of a choice...

by davidcross

This is one hell of a choice if you only have one night in Oslo but I would say see the sculpture park after the museums have closed. Then, if it one of those long summer evenings take underground one to its terminus for the views. During opening hours get over yb boat to Bygdoy and see the Norsk Folkemuseum (photo), the Viking Ships, Kontiki and Fram museums - all unique to Oslo. Goodness knows - perhaps the first view of the stave church at the Norsk Folkemuseum - or the Vigeland sculpture park - or - - -

Money exchange and using credit/debet cards

by xantylaol

It's always good to have a little cash by you in case something comes up. But the use of credit/debit cards is the easiest way to get around in Norway. Many norwegians don't carry any cash as cards are accepted literally everywhere for payment. And ATM's are "everywhere". The airport train and the taxis all accept credit cards. If you insist on having cash but don't use ATM's - bring a couple of US$, € notes or travellers checks and exchange them in one of the banks or cambios. Your hotel might also be able to assist you with an exchange.

Facts about the city of Oslo

by xantylaol

Oslo is the capital city of Norway. The population of the city proper is 541,822 (as of April 1, 2006). The conurbation extends into the surrounding county of Akershus, with a total population of 825,105 (as of January 1, 2006, according to Statistics Norway), with a current annual growth exceeding 15,000 (in 2005 Oslo and Akershus had a growth of 15,472 according to Statistics Norway), a number which according to Statistics Norway is only expected to keep rising steadily making Oslo one of the fastest growing cities in Europe. The Oslo metropolitan area has a population of about 1.3 million, and about 1.7 million people live in the Oslofjord region. The metropolitan area of Oslo sprawls out on both sides of the Oslofjord of which the city center of Oslo is situated at the end of, giving the urban zone or region more or less the shape of a U turned upside down although it sprawls in all directions.

About 22 % of the population of Oslo are immigrants. The urban municipality (bykommune) of Oslo and county (fylke) is the same entity. Of Oslo's total area, 115 km² is built-up and 7 km² is agricultural. The open areas within the built-up zone amounts to 22 km². The forests in Oslo consist of 85 % needle trees and 15 % leaf trees. Animals such as elk, deer, pheasant and the rare lynx can be found outside of Oslo.

Karl Johan

by Bjorgvin

Enjoy yourself in the centre of the city on a sunny day, stroll along the main street, Karl Johan, and visit the harbour area. Take the ferryboat from Vippetangen SE of Akershus Fortress to the small island of Hovedøya. It will only take a few minutes, and if you have a bus and subway ticket you can also use it for the boat. Cistercian monks built a monastery there in 1147, and it was a thriving place until it was abandoned following the reformation in 1542. Only the ruins remain. The peaceful island, popular with sunbathers in the summer, is easily explored on foot and gives you another view of the city. Visiting my good friends there and sailing with them in their boat on the Oslo fjord.
