Stockholm Stadsmission (City Mission)
The Stockholm Stadsmission stores are one of my favourite second hand stores so far – you could spend hours in them & get lost in the various sections – there really is something for everyone…
The store on Hagagatan (near Odengatan underground stop) has the largest section of kitchen & homewares that I have seen. In addition to this there is a vast clothing section, a corridor of accessories & a music/ entertainment room. With so many treasures in this underground world, you could lose yourself for hours…but never fear, when you feel fatigued from all of that treasure hunting, head over to their coffee station, where you can refuel on a cup of coffee for 10 kronor (bargain!) & even energise from their selection of fairtrade chocolate & snacks. Well done Stockholm Stadsmission – this is no longer just a second hand shop, but this is a hugely enjoyable shopping experience!
I thought it was worth mentioning the Gamla Stan Stadsmission Store, which in keeping with Stockholm’s Old town, has more of an antique shop feel. Yes – much of what they have is priced slightly higher than other Stadsmission stores, but their selection is very different & worth a look, especially if you are looking to pick up some vintage gems from this cave of antiques. In the spirit of recycling goods that are ‘past their best’, Stadsmission also remake things fabric and other materials & some of these items are on sale at the Stadsmission Gamla Stan store. Other Stadsmission stores that sell this range include Skånegatan , Great Square , Hökarängen and Scrape .
