Oslo - Shopping
For budget shoppers, the second hand store Fretex is a good place for clothes, furniture and accessories. Mitt Skattkammer at Trondheimsveien and Gatsby at Brugata can be visited for off-beat clothes and knick knacks. The flea markets at Vestkanttorget, Birkelunden, Grunerlokka, Gronland Brutmarked and Slurpen are also worth visiting for surprise bargains.
Second hand book stores are aplenty in Oslo, and the ones that stand out with a purely antique collection are W. Cappelens antikvariat at Universitetsgaten, Damms Antikvariat AS at Akersgt. 2 and Bjørn Ringstrøms Antikvariat at Ullevålsveien 1. Tronsmo at Kr.Augusts gate 19 is worth a visit for a very eclectic collection of books in English.
Shops in Oslo stay open from 10 AM to 5 PM on weekdays and from 9 AM to 3 PM on Saturdays, though some do extend their evening hours to 9 PM on weekdays and till 6 PM on Saturdays. You would have to complete all your shopping during the week as all shops remain closed on Sundays.
