Swedish Auction Houses Stepping Up Their Fashion Game
We find ourselves browsing the Swedish auction houses' fashion- and accessories catalogues more frequently than ever.
Hands down, we too spend most of our time on our phones fiddling around on Vestiaire Collective (and Tradera, of course).

Bukowskis and Stockholms Auktionsverk are also great sources of inspiration when it comes to interior design and art, while Kaplans is the master of watches and jewelry. Last week, Kaplans also hosted an auction with pieces from a great initiative called Library of Fashion – a pop-up store in Stockholm to which brands has donated clothes available for anyone to borrow.
