Kris Härsing • 18 Sep, 2013

Most of the bigger clothing chains such as Zara, Esprit and the newly opened H&M are represented in Tallinn, though if you want to find something really unique and special then steer clear of the shopping malls. Our local editors in Tallinn have revealed some of their favourite shopping spots.

1. FankadelikVintage treasures

The fashion conscious youth at Fankadelik strive to offer only the best retro and vintage stuff from clothing and accessories to vinyls. The prices might not be cheap but you can be sure you’re getting authentic vintage goods here. Also check out their Facebook page as they often post pictures of new stock.

5. Sfäär StoreUp to the shopping stratosphere

Combining food with shopping can seem a little odd, but Sfäär has made it work. There’s a contemporary restaurant on the ground floor and if you go up the stairs, you’ll find yourself in a fashion boutique.
