Summer, sun, shows and shopping, these are Öland’s four aces.The fact is that the best shopping in the entire region is available on the island, which has a glorious mix of shopping centres and small, original shops and design studios.
The two largest collections of brand shops and multiples are in Öland’s Köpstad in Färjestaden and in the central parts of Borgholm.However, department stores and shops with summertime opening are just about everywhere, often with a product range adapted to the time of the year. You can fit yourself out here with genuine – or sometimes fake – brand label clothes and shoes, everything on the cheap.
Don’t forget to drop in on our potters and other craftspersons. They are good, that’s a fact!There are also plenty of flea markets throughout the province. Neither should you miss Öland’s only glassworks. It is located on route 136 in Kastlösa. And while you’re on the way there it’s worth stopping at Britts Manufaktur in Degerhamn (Södra Möckleby) and at Naturiosa in Grönhögen. They are both shops with a highly individual style. If you’re lucky you’ll find articles of clothing or odds and ends that you will fall in love with, an original Stetson hat or a rare Öland book for example.
Experience genuine markets or the great supply of farm shops with local products. Every day in the market square in Borgholm and on Saturday mornings in Färjestaden and Mörbylånga. That’s quality shopping!
Just south of Öland Bridge is Paradisverkstaden, a ceramics centre with a view over the saltmarsh meadows and Kalmar Sound.
Visitors can enjoy glass and ceramics on display here in light and open architecture surrounded by a beautiful garden. Everything from small candlesticks to large garden urns are available here, all designed by Eva and Olof Paradis.
Ölands Köpstad is a nice shopping centre where you can find 24 shops at walking-distance from the beach.
Together, we offer a fantastic range of clothes and shoes. We also have specialist shops where you can find items including pet accessories, books, gifts, sports and much more.
You’ll meet Poul Jörgensen and Lena Olsson here, who together comprise Kastlösa Glassworks. A successful combination of skill and artistry.
Borgholm City Centre
Borgholm is an urban centre and the seat of Borgholm municipality. It is a popular tourist resort with a substantially increased population during the summer months. There are also a lot of shops here that are open during the summer.
Bödasågens Allhandel has been open since 2004, and is a family business that derives 100 percent from Öland. The name comes from the fact that we run our business in an old sawmill. At some 600 sqm., our shop has the majority of things that you might possibly need, apart from food. We are open from Easter until the Harvest Festival and All Saints’ Festival. We sell 300 kinds of sweets in our 60 sqm sweets section. Various kinds of pick’n’mix, ice cream, drinks, coffee, slush drinks etc. It is open every day from Midsummer until mid-August. We endeavour to have a wide, top-quality range at the right prices. We maintain a basic range with the rest of the selection as varied as possible so that customers can always find something new.
