If you want your shopping to contribute to a good cause, then you should definitely stop by Røde Kors Secondhand, a boutique run by volunteers, part of the Norwegian branch of the famous humanitarian organization Red Cross. Here you’ll find anything from half-price IKEA furniture to quality clothes and accessories — and you’ll know that anything you buy will help make a positive difference.

Situated in what is probably Oslo’s most vintage-friendly street, Ny York (named after Grünerløkka’s old pet name) is a cool destination for your vintage and second-hand needs. You’ll find both women’s and men’s clothes, accessories and shoes that are full of character and history, as well as some handmade jewelry that will make your final look that much edgier.

Another one for a good cause: Inside UFF you’ll find a big selection of second-hand men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, shoes and accessories, along with sportswear and traditional Norwegian dresses and sweaters. All the clothes are donated and the profits go towards the HPP Federation’s (Humana People to People) development programs in Africa and India.
