The Booktrader is the main English language bookshop in Copenhagen. It is located in the Latin District of the center of Copenhagen. For a specialist bookshop it is rather big, perhaps because it has two specialties. Primarily, the shop sells books in English, mainly by English authors. The selection is wide and the ambience is somewhat British. The store also specializes in books on history of art and philosophy. In these fields, the languages vary from English to Danish and German. The sections in both specialties are good.
One of the oldest auction houses in Denmark, Bruun Rasmussen is also among the ten largest auction houses in the world. The auctions that are held throughout the year are internationally recognized and feature various items ranging from paintings, antiques, modern art, glass work to jewelry, stamps, weapons and wines. This Egyptian style building situated in Bredgade, is a three story showroom. If you can't visit the showroom to catch some live auctions happening, Bruun Rasmussen also hosts online auctions.
Thrifty fashionistas have a lot to cheer about at this store offering secondhand luxury brands at great prices. The store also offers commissioning services, so if you have something that's fairly new and don't wear it, they'll sell it and share half of the sale price with you. There's high standards for the store's stock; only well-cared-for clothes and fairly recent trends will do. Most of the store's collection comprises well-known designer brands. There's a selection of brands for kids as well. While it's not very cheap, you get to follow your favorite designer without burning a hole in your pocket.
