Generally, shopping in Södermalm is trendy, young and bohemian. It is an area in Stockholm that houses atypical, modern boutiques for vintage merchandise and antiques, design, fashion and interior décor.
Unique and acclaimed vintage items can be found in SoFo, the area south of Folkungagatan. SoFo, coupled with Götgatan, has become an assorted scene for new and unanticipated shopping variety, as well as classic retail. These blocks south of Folkungagatan are home to shops specializing in jewelry, vintage and second-hand, clothing, design, books and magazines, music and more.
Several fashion brands have their own individual stores in this district. The area has a laid-back atmosphere but in the warm months is usually an active social scene, especially Nytorget Square. A row of galleries can be found west of Slussen at Horngatspuckeln, along with art, jewelry and handicraft stores.
Between Mariatorget and Zinkensdamm, further up Hornsgatan, is a group of vintage clothing stores, such as the well-known Judits Second Hand, Herr Judit and typical budget savers such as Stockholms Stadsmission and Myrorna.
