Monika goes to Stockholm twice a year to visit family and friends and to stock up on Swedish antique lace. In Stockholm, there are many antique, vintage and second-hand stores that sell lace. Her favorite is Old Touch, located at Upplandsgatan 43. She has spent literally hours in this store and always finds amazing pieces. The cabinet drawers are overflowing with handmade lace. To walk into Old Touch is like stepping back in time. The knowledgeable store owner and curator, Birgitta Gardner, is at the ready to explain the background of the various laces.
