You simply cannot go to Stockholm and not buy something. The island of Gamla Stan has interesting shops that sell everyday tourist things and mementos and then there are shops that are quite unique. Buy name brand fashions, check out the second hand stores or tour the light store. Shopping has never been more fun than the indoor mall or exclusive boutiques along the streets called the delightful Sturegallerian and the Stureplan. Shop the neighborhood of SoFo and pick up something a little retro and stylish and peruse the vintage clothing shops.
