Exterior of the new bookshop in Stockholm

The Stockholm shop is moving! We've had 7 amazing years since we opened the shop in Gamla stan, and business has grown so much we simply need more space. We're moving the shop to new exciting (and larger) premises in the SoFo district of Södermalm.

The shop will be closed on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th while we transfer all the books to the new shop, and on Monday we'll open the door to the new shop on Södermannagatan 22 in Södermalm.

Keep your eyes open for an invitation to our opening bash next Friday, and special offers next weekend. See you in SoFo!

PS. Here's a news article in the Swedish bookseller trade magazine: Satsar på större lokaler

PPS. And here's how to get to the new bookshop on Söder – it's easy:
