My Stockholm haul so far:
Postcards from Junibaken- 4 Elsa Beskows, 2 John Bauers, 3 Astrid Lindgens; 10kr each, so about $10.
What I’m pretty sure are vintage or very very passable heels (Marie en skinnsko fran master) from Emmaus Vintage for an insanely reasonable 150kr or about $20!!!
Also from the Junibacken- a set of children’s Moomin dishware. Now I want a whole collection of the books in English!!!!
Powder blue Friendkid sailor button high waist shorts from Tjallamalla.
Favorite shop of the day- Sivletto, the Rockabilly shop in Sodermalm. The second it open it was like all the midcentury folk in town showed up. They had vintage, repro, kids, and housewares, and a barbershop attached. Not to mention a lunch bar with beers on tap. I may return later to pick up a Collectif tiki dress so I won’t pay international shipping and possibly some Edith and Ella clothes or shoes.
Least favorite- Beyond Retro. It’s super warm in each of the locations I visited and the selection is overwhelming. Sorting by color is great in say a charity shop like OXFAM or Goodwill, but in a vintage shop with a HUGE selection it’s a fucking pain in the ass. I wish more places sorted by era. I hate sending an hour in a hot shop sifting through nothing but polyester 70s clothes and 80s sequins to find only one mid century skirt and it’s 4 sizes too small. Ugh.
Side note- I don’t understand how some of these shops pay their overhead when they only stock about 100 items in inventory and those items are only slightly above average price if at all…
