One of the things (among many others, of course) which I really love about Stockholm is the amazing offer of second hand stores and after moving here I became quite a fan of buying second hand so here are some items I purchased recently. ♥
For some reason, I fell in love with old(er) tableware and I decided to pick up a few things. Since I like to drink tea and coffee, I got a coffee pot (I never had that so looking forward to using it!), different tea/coffee cups, a sugar bowl, a small milk pot, a few plates (didn’t photograph all of them) and wine glasses. I’m still looking for a tea pot. I’ve seen some but didn’t really feel like ‘that’s it’ so I skipped buying it for now. But I’m sure I’ll find something. :)
Also, I like how these stores have a nice selection of second hand yarn and buttons so I picked some of those as well. I have a few small knitting/crochet project on my mind and instead of buying new yarn I decided to buy second hand yarn and needles.
And, my last item in this post is a book about birds with descriptions and sketches, which is what I actually need since I want to work on my drawing skills. :) I got other books as well; I’m especially grateful for cheap dictionaries since those are really expensive if they’re new (like $100 but I paid less than $5 for used ones). :)
Second hand stores in Stockholm (some of them at least):
- Stockholms Stadmission
- Erikshjälpen Second Hand
- Emmaus Stockholm
- Loppis-Gallerian Sundbyberg, Sturegatan 35 (link)
