    Biblioteeksgatan

    by wadekorzan Written Jun 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Central Stockholm has quite a number of little shopping streets to explore, and I found this one to be quite nice. It is a pedestrian street called Biblioteeksgatan, near the subway Ostermalmstorg. It is a short street with some high end fashion shops, and is conveniently located next to other interesting streets like Norrlandsgatan and Birger Jarlsgatan, so you can explore all of them at the same time. The street was particularly nice in the evening, though the shops were closed, of course.

    Tifo Support: Football souvenirs from all over the world

    by Calcio Written Dec 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you’re really interested in souvenirs, ultra-cultures, photos, magazines, supporter-videos and dvd, you should go to Tifo Support. It’s small shop in Gamla Stan, (the old town) where you’ll find everything from most parts of the big football-world. The owner is a famous Hammarby- and Roma-supporter and you’ll for sure find him a bit “strange”, but very very friendly. Don’t get afraid for his long hair and big tattoos, as he’s really a nice guy!
    You’ll find the shop by going with the green metro-line to Gamla Stan. When you get out of the station, go straight over the street, into a small street, and then directly to the first left. You’ll see some small flags over the door at the right side of the street.
    You’ll first enter a music-store, and inside that store is Tifo Support.
    Say hi to Mikael from me!

    What to buy: Everything that has to do with fooball...

    What to pay: Normal prices, 500 SEK for matchshirt, 100-150 for a scarfe. 120-150 for a video, 40 SEK for a magazine, and so on.

    Grey's American Food Store: Great place to find things from the states

    by wadekorzan Updated Jun 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are American or know some typical American supermarket items and have a hard time finding them in Europe, this is a great place. I live outside the US (and usually don't miss it too much), but when I walked in this small store in the old town (Gamla Stan), I realized there were so many things I was missing! Reeses peanut butter cups, Quaker Oatmeal, chips and salsa, cranberry sauce, etc etc..

    I would say this store is particularly good if you are an America living overseas or if you will be staying in Stockholm for a longer time. If you're only over in Europe from the states for a short time, I would skip the store and just wait until you are home again!

    What to buy: It's located on the main pedestrian street called Vasterlanggatan, in old town (Gamla Stan)

    Derby: Football souvenirs

    by Calcio Written Dec 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Earlier the three big Stockholms-club had a souvenir-shop together in the central parts of Stockholm. I’m not sure, but I do think that “Derby” still exist at the corner of Mäster Samuelsgatan and Slöjdgatan. Otherwise you’ll find souvenirs to buy around the stadiums on matchdays.

    What to buy: Scarves, shirts, hats, flags. Everything you want to wear at the stadium.

    What to pay: As it's official souvenirs they are quite expensive. 500 SEK (55 euro) for a shirt, at least. 100-150 SEK for a scarfe.

  • Tall Women's Fashions

    by peach93 Written Nov 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One thing that I loved about Stockholm was the selection of clothing stores for women there. There are clothing stores for women everywhere, of course, but if you are really tall like me and have, well, a larger than average bustline, finding cool clothes and lingere can sometimes get tricky. In Sweden everything fits! : ) I was thrilled to death, I have to tell you. It was also great buying shoes there because nearly everything was in my size, whereas at home I have some trouble sometimes. It was heavenly. The styles and colors of everything were also right on. Highly recommended.

    You'll find what you're looking for...

    by Maline Updated May 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stockholm is THE city to go shopping in in Sweden. No matter what you are looking for, you will find it here.
    As seen in my neighbourhood tips, the neighbourhoods in Stockholm differ from each other, and your purchase possibilites vary accordingly.

    In downtown Stockholm, the area around The Sergel Square, you will find the big department stores, such as Åhléns, PUB, NK and Debenham´s. They have good selections of designer clothes, shoes, furniture and other home decoration items, kitchen utensils, stationery and perfume/make-up. Besides these, you also have in-door gallerias/malls and a huge number of varying stores lining the streets.

    Towards Norrmalmstorg/Stureplan you find the more exclusive designer stores, and in Gamla Stan, if you dare to leave the main tourist street of Västerlånggatan, there are many many antiques stores.

    In Södermalm, there are a couple of gallerias/malls and also quite a number of smaller shops for designer items and more. for vinyl records, the shop called Recordmania just by Moseback torg is the place to look.

    Special stores to visit in Sweden are for example H&M clothing stores. These have started to sprawl the world now, still it might be cheaper in Sweden than elsewhere.
    For books try Akademibokhandeln, there is one right by the Sergel Square, and one further down towards Kungsträdgården and NK Department store.
    For furniture and little home gadgets of course IKEA is THE place to go. Swedish people have LOTS of IKEA stuff in their homes!!!
    Ikea has several stores in the Stockholm area, though none in the inner-city part. Chec k out their homepage
    ikea.com for details...!
    Scroll down to read more about specific stores and what to shop for in Sweden!

    What to buy: Just buy anything you want!

    What to pay: Infinite amounts of money!
    Swedish stores accept euros. (Most of them anyway)

    Ahlens, one of Stockholms department stores.

    Lush: You can smell it a few blocks away ...

    by Maline Updated May 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Lush stores are not unique to Sweden, rather they are orginally from Britain I think. But since they opened across the bigger cities in Sweden there has been a lush-mania creeping up.

    What to buy: This is definitely the place to go for bubble bath, soads, shampoos and other bath items.
    There is skincare also, but no make-up.
    A personal favourite is the Celestial skin-creme and the Figues and Leaves soap bar...
    Hmm, but then if you have a tub in your hotel room, get a bath bomb to wash away the city dust in the evening.

    What to pay: From 2 US dollars/ 2 Euros and up...!

    Rea??

    by sim1 Updated Oct 27, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you see this sign in the stores "Rea" you know there is a sale ongoing! In this case up to 70%, not bad :-) For shops to be allowed this name "Rea" it means that the sale should be during a limited time and the discount needs to be substantial.

    There are a few "Rea" that are standard each year. One of these is the "Mellandagsrea". This is the sale period directly after Christmas that a lot of shops have. Another one is the "bokrea" which is the book sale. All bookstore (also online) simultaneously have a fixed period around the end of February when they have a sale on a selection of their books, these can be even new titles. A great time I find to stock up on books so I have always several books on the shelf to read the coming months.

    KappAhl: Clothes again

    by Maline Written May 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KappAhl is like Lindex a clothes store. In approach I would say it falls between the bolder styles of H&M and the more conservative style of Lindex. KappAhl is very popular with families with children, thay have lots of kids clothes. There is also a lingerie section, accessories and swimwear if the season is right. H&M. Lindex and KAppAhl are also typically found in every Swedish town, small or big.

    What to buy: Basic fashion, sometimes a bit bolder clothes. Nothing cool for your teenager though...

    KappAhl clothing.
