Most stores start their 50-70% sale a few weeks after new year, so say ~10th of January. There are few sales worth going to though, except ABCD and Nathalie Schuterman (who starts the sale with a 50% off everything (I think so, since I've never seen anything on 30% there) then 70% a month later or so. ALOT of people visit that store during the sales though, but sitll worth visiting ). Mulberry's sale is ok, since there hardly is anyone there, so you can get bags pretty cheap (leather messengers going for 3k SEK instead of 8k ($450/€320 instead of $1200/€850), and there are lots and lots left at 70%. The Gucci and Versace sales are usually poor and crowded, and has on top of that really poor staff. NK's sale is as stated before not worth visiting, especially not if you can't go to the pre-pre-sale (who you are invited to if you buy for $5k+ a year). Nitty Grittys is ok though, a concept store carrying alot of brands not available anywhere else in Stockholm, like Junya Watanbe, Miu Miu, Martin Margiela, Dries Van Noten etc. H&M start their 50% sale when everyone else does, same with Zara. So, got in the middle of January.

Kosta Boda/Orrefors has a huge store in Stockholm if you're into home decorating. Acne Jeans have a couple of stores and retailers in Stockholm, same with swedish brands such as Filippa K, J Lindeberg, Whyred and Tiger of Sweden. Acne doesn't have their sales in the concept stores, they have a special gallery just used for the sales at Brunnsgatan (I think), if you subscribe to their newletter you'll get the adress. Hope you'll enjoy your stay.

I'm going to Stockholm in 10 days and although I will be there only for a weekend I would like to try some shopping. Ì'd love to know where are the best areas to go shopping, but any advice is welcomed
(and I suppose that it will be extremely cold, won't it?)
Hi StellaMare, I 'll be in Stockholm on the 5th of Dec. - wednesday and will have the afternoon free. What is the best lady shopping - only one address -let's say Birger Jarlsgatan 5 - would that be good? I saw they have many designers.
I'll be staying at Grand Hotel Stockholm S. Blasieholmshamnen No. 8
is the shop far away? what shops are near by?
Will it be very cold? Is it snowing?
Thank you so much in advance.
"Natalie Schuterman" at Birger Jarlsgaton
Very nice shop, with very sweet and helpful SAs. They soon will open an on-line boutique.
The selection of CL was better than in Paris CL boutique. They gave me 20 % off!!!!
I thought someone here might be able to tell me where I can find a good, but not insanely expensive seamstress/tailor in Stockholm?
I have a blazer that needs to be made about two sizes smaller (stupid ebay...).
Does anyone have any experience from Ateljé Stass on Döbelnsgatan 71?
there is a tailor on either mäster samuelsgatan or jakobsbergsgatan (it's located at the opposite side of the street of the alternate entrance of urban outfitters) that's pretty good (abcd is using him as a tailor), although i've only had tapering of jeans there (which i paid 230 SEK for, so it's not that expensive), so i can't say if he's good at altering sizes, sorry.
Thanks. The lady on döbelnsgatan said that making the jacket smaller would cost 500-600 - and she said it would be "a lot of work", so her price point seems to be lower. I guess I'll just go and check it out..
just a small update regarding nk, because it's for once worth a visit if you're a guy. paul&friends at nk has expanded and now carries rick owens (main line and drkshdw) and kris van assche. nk herrtrend is also restocked with new brands which was far more intresting than it was before. now they carry brands such as jil sander, rykiel homme, raf by raf simons, raf simons, helmut lang and neil barrett. thumbs up. the womens floor also got some new stuff, including nk international designers, with brands like vivienne westwood
