There are a lot of boutiques in town that sell really unique clothes. Mainly clothes for women and young girls, but some sell guy's clothes too. These places are perfect if you want to find a trendy outfit to wear out to the clubs, or if you have a eccentric sense of style.
What to buy: The clothes at these boutiques often have glitter and other sparkly things on them. They also have cutouts, funky sleeves, etc. Basically anything from eccentric to trendy.
H&M has lots of clothes and accessories for girls and young women. The things they have are mainly casual and trendy.
What to buy: Tops, jeans, pants, dresses, accessories (handbags, hats, belts, etc)... Basically anything teen girls and young women like.
What to pay: Depends on the item, but shopping in Sweden in general is expensive.
This is a department store in town where you can buy clothes, accessories, school/writing supplies, toys, cds, beauty products, etc. There's a lot of nice stuff in there, and I noticed it's sometimes a lot cheaper than the boutiques.
This is a shoe store. They have shoes for men, women, and children, and many different styles are available.
What to buy: Dress shoes, boots, sandals, sneakers... When it comes to shoe styles, you name it, they have it. I bought a pair of black go-go boots, a pair of black platform wedge sandals, and a pair of blue pointy-toed high-heel slingbacks.
What to pay: It's expensive, but if there's a sale you can get a good deal. I paid 150 SEK (the equivalent of around 30 Canadian dollars) for a pair of chunky-heeled go-go boots that was on sale. Very cheap!
In Sweden, the liquor stores are called Systembolaget, and I think you have to be at least 20 years old to buy it legally. They do check for ID when you buy it, so if you're younger you probably won't get away with it. On Fridays in the late afternoon, it's extremely busy, so it's best to go there earlier in the week.
What to buy: Any kind of alcoholic drink is available (beer, wine, hard liquor, etc), but not all brands are. I couldn't find any Canadian beer there. They also have local brands from Sweden.
What to pay: It can be expensive, but if you're just buying beer or coolers for a pre-party, it's a lot cheaper than buying drinks in bars.
This is a little shop in town where you can buy hand-made Swedish crafts and cute souvenirs. It's more authentic than the stuff you'll find at the tourist office. The woman who works there will also gift-wrap (for free) the things you buy if you want.
What to buy: There are all sorts of typical Swedish crafts, such as the colourful little wooden horses and things that have to do with Midsummer.
