I would like to share a gem that I stumbled upon by accident walking around in the Vasastan area. Framtidsantiken is a small vintage/nostalgia shop with all kinds of things from the 50’s to the 80’s.
In this shop you will get a warm welcoming by the owner himself who proudly shares stories about the things he has collected over the years. Here you will find pins, posters as well as old cereal boxes and magazines, but what I love the most is the collection of sunglasses and eyeglass frames.
This place is where the theatre people go to find the perfect glasses for a role in an upcoming play and all kinds of other props, like a flour bag from the 60’s, to make a scene more authentic.
If you want to continue in a vintage mode I recommend you visit the classic café Valand on Surbrunnsgatan 48, this place hasn’t changed a bit since 1954. And if you’re up for tasting a classic Swedish pastry I recommend the dammsugare (Swedish for “vacuum cleaner”).
