Marjon reporting from Stockholm
**Report by Marjon Hoogervorst
This year my friend Maaike and I choose to go to Stockholm… This was our destiny, because when we were in Copenhagen, I wanted to buy a book from that city. But when we pointed some nice things to do in the book later in the restaurant, I realised I had bought a City guide from another city: Stockholm (stupid!)…. So you understand: we had to go there now!!! So we did and please find here some tips my favorite shops!
And there we were in february 2010…. Brrr… It was minus 15 degrees, so it was too cold to take my camera out my bag most of the time…
Gamla Stan is the old town where the history from Stockholm starts… here you have lots of nice restaurants and cafe's to eat and to have lunch…
SOFO (in the Södermalm area) is the area with a lot of small shops from designers and passionated people who sells their beloved goods.
At the Åsögatan most shops carry fashion with really beautiful collections!!! I like the Shoerepairshop the most… but as usual: this is also the most expensive shop…other ones i liked were matilda wendelboe and geronimo things.
In 6/5/4 you can buy some nice clothes, accessories and drink a cup of thea/coffee/smoothie at the bar.
I looooooooove chocolat, that’s why I wanted to drink a cup of hot chocolat in this shop: choklad fabriken. This was our last visit in the Sofo area, we went back to the central area: Norrmalm
In Norrmalm you have David and Martin. They are jewellerydesigners with a specific style born out their interests in art, movies, fashion and nature… In the future they’ll open a shop in Antwerp (Belgium)!!!
As always in every blog and book they wrote it… you have to go to designhouse Stockholm! . This was our last shop we visited before we had to go and get the plane back to Amsterdam!
These are our shopping results we spread out on the bed in our hotel room! We stayed in the Hotel birger Yarl. On the left you see my buys were I wrote about (the tshirt from Gooey Brand, the red/white tshirt from Marimekko, the shoes I bought by Nilson, the happy socks by 6/5/4, the rabbits, the stone and the candle by Manos, special Stockholmtea at the Tea Center (Hornsgatan), eyeshadow……………
