About Stockholm on a Shoestring
I’m Anita, and I moved to Stockholm in January 2014 together with my husband Ben. Although I have been here several times & he has lived here at different points during his life, there is a lot we don’t know about this city and many hidden gems we want to explore.
As someone who is fairly new to this city, and being thrifty by nature, I am keen to discover how we can enjoy this place without breaking the bank. Good value & second hand shops, value for money restaurants & cafes and thrifty days out is what we’re after.
So whether you are travelling through or Stockholm is your home, watch this space as we explore the capital of Scandinavia…
It didn’t take us long to uncover the second-hand scene in Sweden. It’s big. From clothes to furniture, fabric to home decor – you can find everything you need & cheaply too!
Whether you are passing through & want to buy a souvenir of your travels or want to completely kit out your home, we’ve categorised some of our favourites by location & content to make it easy for you.
Where to eat
