Grandpa, Stockholm

Extracted from A Stockholm Interlude, buy yours here.

Grandpa is the oldest in what is now a group of three stores (one a short distance away on Kungsholmen, the other in Gothenburg, selling a well-chosen mix of new and old items—furniture, lights, stationery, books, bags, wallets and clothing, with an emphasis on Scandinavian labels. Downstairs are enormous educational maps and charts, rolled or mounted along with weathered objets for that instant heirloom effect.
