The burlesque second-hand department store 'Sopstationen' (the Tip) is full of goodies that others do not want. Here, you can find bargain sofa groups for under SEK 500 or china from the 1940's, kitschy paintings and masses of clothes from the 60's to the 90's. Project Sopstationen was started in 1996 by Lars Andersson and Christer Andersson in cooperation with the Swedish Social Insurance Agency, the Swedish Labour Market Institute (AMI) and Malmö City. Sopstationen is not just a second-hand department store. It is also a centre for intellectually disabled adults where the collective result is more important than individual capability. Why not pop into Sopstationen? You might come away with new furniture for your sitting room as well as new friends. You can also call Sopstationen if you want to donate furniture or clothes.
