Gothenburg is bursting with top-notch thrift stores and some great little markets that will have your vintage soul squealing with delight. And, while Swedes in general are known for their Scandi cool style, Gothenburg has its own aesthetic that runs right through the vintage scene. Here are the best thrift shops and markets in Gothenburg.

Loved by over 40s

Evergreen Second-Hand Butik


With a hand-selected collection that includes newer designers rubbing up against quality vintage from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s, Evergreen is also one of the best places to find unique bags, shoes, and other accessories.

Underbara Ting


If you love Scandi style, particularly from the past, head to Underbara Ting, which specializes in Nordic design from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Also available is a great selection of porcelain and glassware.

This huge indoor flea market has been around since 2000. With more than one hundred tables selling everything from clothing to kitchen aids to old movie projectors, just wandering around and taking it all in is worth the visit. In addition to some great bargains, there’s also some decent coffee on tap.

Emmaus Björkå

Shop, Store

With a motto like ‘Together for a better world,’ it’s immediately apparent that Emmaus Björkå is a thrift shop with a difference. Sure, there’s the fantastic selection of second-hand and retro-inspired fashion (along with books, knick-knack and assorted other gifts) but what makes this store stand out is its commitment to social causes, which is the key to everything they do. Every purchase helps support charity efforts, such as those in Palestine. You can also donate clothes and other used items.

Miss Ragtime


Miss Ragtime has carefully selected vintage dresses, coats, jackets, boots, leather and much, much more. It’s the place to find hot labels from the ’70s, as well as the best of modern brands. You’ll also find some really great jewellery.

Bellevue Marknad

Bellevue Marknad is Gothenburg’s biggest and oldest indoor flea market, with more than 2000 square meters (21,500 square feet) of old stuff looking for new owners. The market is open for companies, drafts people, schools, organizations and pretty much everyone else. Lots to pick through and definitely a place to discover some hidden gems.



If you’re looking to get rid of a few things and replace them with some great finds, Kvillehyllan is a great place to start. You can rent shelves and fill them with whatever you want, and the store will sell it for you. People sell all kinds of vintage and second-hand, as well as their own designs, so great bargains are definitely on the menu.

POP Boutique


Selling both their own POP label as well as top quality vintage from the ’50s through the ’90s, this boutique has buckets of style and a great selection of fashion with which to amp up your wardrobe.

Beyond Retro


Beyond Retro seems to be slowly taking over the vintage world and they’re doing it with style. Loads of vintage from every decade, as well as an excellent selection of jeans, leather, bags, hats, and shoes. Always busy and a great place to put together that killer outfit you’ve been dreaming about.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
