What you'll do

We will meet by the fountain in Mariatorget square, within easy access from Södra and Mariatorget stations. We will do quick introductions and I will share with you what to look out for in every store we go to and explain how to quickly find a standout piece, by evaluating the fabric and the cut. Finally, based on my own experience, I will give you ideas on how to update any pieces you may find for even edgier looks - with no special skills but cutting and very basic sewing. To do so, I will bring out my sewing kit and an item I am currently working on - an oversized mens shirt, which will very soon become a Reformation-inspired summer dress.

Enough talking - let’s get shopping! We will be visiting 5 locations on our tour - Stadsmission, Humana, Siv & Åke, Emmaus Vintage, and a sewing supplies store Tygeverket, where you can buy buttons, zippers, or thread to upgrade your buys.

We will finish the tour near a larger Emmaus thrift store, which you can explore in your own time. I will also provide you with tips on the other hub of second hand stores one metro station ride away (Slussen to Zinkensdamm). And if by this point in time you decide to switch to a more usual format of shopping - Götgatan is home to all the mainstream high-street brands

I am an avid thrift shopper, with over 99% of my clothing purchases these days being second hand or vintage. Over the years I’ve rummaged through second hand stores everywhere from London's Primrose Hill to Tokyo's Harajuku. Now that I am an Airbnb host in Stockholm, I often get questions about less traditional shopping destinations, so I’ve prepared a tour around my favourite local thrift shopping spots.

My entire life revolves around creativity and aesthetics - I work at a design agency by day, and style fashion photoshoots on weekends. For me, buying second hand is not just about saving money or doing my bit for the environment, it’s also a way to dress more uniquely and let my creativity flow as I adjust the pieces I buy. I can’t wait to share my passion and help you find standout clothing at a wallet-friendly price.

Stadsmission is one of Sweden's largest charity shop chains with a broad selection of clothing - a great starting point! Humana is a fashion-forward boutique, popular among stylists, with bold original pieces from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Siv & Åke are all about quality - expect silk, leather and cashmere at a fraction of the cost! Finally, Emmaus Vintage greets you with a grand entrance and extravagant looks. Check them all out on Instagram!

Diana was wonderful. She was very bubbly and kind, and also flexible when our schedule changed. She has a keen eye for fashion, and made me feel comfortable picking what I liked, but also helping me branch out in my fashion choices. She also taught us about not just fashion culture but Stockholm. She was very helpful when it came to helping me see how to modify clothes, and the right materials and sewing supplies to use. I highly recommend for anyone of any age or size!

I booked this experience as a part of an entire day of experiences I organized for my girlfriend's birthday. Thrift shopping with Diana was the first thing on the list and it was a great way to kick off the day! Right off the bat, Diana seemed very friendly and energetic and her attitude really set the mood for the experience to come. She shared some very interesting insights from the world of fashion styling and added a personal touch of sharing her own experiences as well as delving deep into her personal style and approach. In the stores we visited her can-do attitude was infectious and turned the experience into a joyful exploration. She also browsed items for us to try out and made some very good recommendations. Diana was more than a fashion stylist with some advice to give us, she felt like a friend we could rely on and for that, I can't help but wholeheartedly recommend this experience.

I would recommend this to anyone interested in finding quality clothes and learning some arts & crafts. I sincerely enjoyed being given advice on stitching and adjusting fit on clothes once I learned what to look for. This is a true learning experience as well as a fun shopping tour! All handed to me by a very friendly and caring professional. I loved every moment of it!

My husband, Kurt, arranged this experience for me and here is my comment: Di really knows fashion, and it was eye-opening for me to be guided to the most flattering clothes in the second-hand universe. I loved her and I hope she'll take me up on my offer to be my house guest when she comes to my city. Best wishes, Terrie
