Fåfängan Antik was founded by Mickael Appelkvist in May 1990. Ever since the shop opened its doors this little gem has been a natural centre for antiques enthusiasts and dealers alike. The shop has always prided itself with being full of unique antiques and items tantalising the mind. In 2007 we branched out after having obtained three big storages of unused bijouterie and costume jewelry from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. With this Fåfängan Antik became one of very few shops in Sweden, not to say Europe, being able to offer a huge array of choice when it comes to the bride looking for the perfect and unique necklace for her special day as well as giving the girl looking for that amazing jewelry set for the 1920s party plenty of choice. Not to forget, we also have a vast range of gentlemens´ paraphernalia like Victorian pipes, walking sticks with beautiful silver tops, morning and evening hats and cufflinks. Smoking utensils, decorative items and crystal decanters for the modern gentleman with taste for the beautiful and a touch of luxury can also be found aplenty. While having expanded into the world of vintage Christian Dior jewelry, beautiful bijouterie and items for the gentleman we are still firmly rooted in old school antiques, so nothing has changed, really. At Fåfängan Antik the avid collector can still find his or her passion fullfilled, as well as those who have recently found the joys of antiques. Over time we have also built up and nurtured very good business relations with many dealers from all over Europe, and every year it is a joy when new dealers find their way to us.
You are all most welcome to the fantastic world at Fåfängan Antik!
