They really do a good work and its the best shopping with low prizes and wide range of items.

The Stockholm Stadsmission - the City Mission - operates a chain of second hand stores around the city that raise money for their homeless services. So shopping here you can actually feel a little bit good about yourself! There are Stadsmission stores in various neighborhoods, but the one in Gamla Stan - in Stortorget - seemed to have an especially good assortment of what the French so artfully call "bibelots" and what the Americans so truthfully call "stuff." I made major inroads here on my Christmas shopping: small pieces of glassware, ceramics, and unusual souvenirs. And I love the Stadsmission t-shirts, too!
What to pay: bargains are to be had, if you look for them!
