Slanchogled – Arts & crafts supplies

Slanchogled (means sunflower in Bulgarian) is probably the oldest store for craft and art supplies I know and it still remains one of the best in Sofia. Not that it has that many goods but the place is really inspiring. Going there is a favourite ritual of mine even though lately I haven’t been crafting anything. One can still be inspired or buy a splendid decoration.

Slanchogled is situated in a 2-floored old house on the popular Ivan Vazov Str. There is no chance you’ll miss it – the facade of the house is a good example of street art in Sofia, drawn on each side. Also the shop window is always decorated splendidly so it will probably catch your eye.

Slanchogled has 2 entrances, both leading to the main second floor, so it doesn’t matter which one you choose.

On the first floor there are mainly supplies for drawing: brushes, books, notebooks, pencils and tripods. If you choose the other entrance you will find different wrapping papers. Narrow wooden squeaking stairs will get you to the second floor – my favourite space for different types of papers.

Interesting fact: there is another Slanchogled shop in Camden town in London as well.
