Friendly disclaimer! We want to be as accurate as possible, but given these challenging times, we urge you to recheck that the venues are open when you decide to visit.


It’s no secret that the Swedes have an excellent sense of fashion and design, along with a strong eco-conscience. So among other great things that have emerged from this perfect combination, is Stockholm’s unique thrifting culture! 


For those unfamiliar with the word, thrift is very simply a lifestyle and consumer culture that doesn’t believe in the concept of ‘waste’. For everything from clothes to shoes to furniture, books, and art, there is a market for pre-loved, and upcycled goods that have been donated, resold, curated from vintage collections, redesigned, and much more. 


One has to witness and partake in this culture to truly understand it – so here are Unravelog’s picks for unique thrift stores in Stockholm!

One of the city’s oldest, this thrift store is located in the fashionable Södermalm district. It is famous for its eclectic vintage collection of dresses, shoes, jackets, and handbags dating to as far back as the 1930s!

Contemporary designer labels


Instead of retro or vintage, Arkivet focuses on carefully selected and fairly recent pieces of clothes, shoes, and accessories from designer labels. The store design is sleek and does not give the impression of a typical thrift store. 



Address: Norrtullsgatan 33, 113 27 Stockholm and Nybrogatan 44, 114 40 Stockholm

A bit of everything


This is actually a hugely popular thrift store chain with many outlets around the city. But unlike big-brand chains, you do not find the same products in every store. The very affordable collection includes everything from clothes to shoes to furniture to books to CDs, records, and utensils. Myrorna stores in Hötorget, Odenplan, and Zinkensdamm are the easiest to access by public transport.

This is Sweden’s most popular car-boot sale where the wares are sold quite literally, from the boots of cars. It is hosted by city locals selling their wares through pre-booked slots at this communal garage sale in the city outskirts. One could chance upon very interesting items in furniture, antiques, books, toys, artwork, vinyl, fashion, kids wear, homeware, and jewellery. This is one of the best places to understand the prevalence of thrift culture in Sweden. One can get here by taking the train from Stockholm Östra (east) station to Täby Kyrkby. 



Adress: Litsby Gård, diagonally opposite Frestavägen 9, 187 70 Täby
