For many young people in Stockholm, Vasastan is the district that holds the most appeal – the area is rich with cozy cafés and a range of shops that guarantee to suit all tastes.

More and more designers are looking to Vasastan for potential store locations, first and foremost the Birkastan area with the most popular section for shopping being Rörstrandsgatan, where for example Swedish designer Carin Wester can be found. Expanding on Rörstrandsgatan, the boutique area encompasses the streets all the way down towards the train station Karlberg.

One store of Stockholm's infamous secondhand chain Myrorna can be found on Tomtebogatan, offering a selection of everything from clothing, shoes and accessories to books, pottery and decorations at relatively low prices. This organization is run by the Salvation Army and all of the revenue goes to charity, so if you find you're not interested in buying anything it would be an appropriate place to do away with your unwanted clothes or knick-knacks. Next to Myrorna is People Like Us, a somewhat more expensive but well-assorted secondhand boutique where one can find vintage clothes paired with shoes and accessories from their own self-titled brand.
