Karit lived in Sharm el-Sheikh as a diving instructor and ran two dress shops. When Egypt succumbed to political storms, she returned to Estonia. Her shop carries low-volume local designers from Italy to Turkey. Every piece is hand-picked by Karit herself.

Also check out bamboo socks by Thought, and Bambooka sunglasses with a fascinating African story behind them.
Not your posh designer store with uppity staff. Instead, warmth. And stylish Swedish and Danish interior design in toned-down hues. In the 90s, owner Kairit worked at the Estonian embassy in Stockholm and fell in love with the Scandinavian lifestyle.
“Design is one thing,” she says. “But Scandinavians know how to enjoy life with warmth and kindness.” Which also sums up her store and cafe corner. Simple, stylish, relaxing. Scents, music, candles, and staff so nice you’ll question your moral core.

“I want to stay ahead of things,” says owner Elena Volk. To spot new talent, she takes a quarterly designer-hunting bus trip to Riga and Vilnius. (No designers are hurt in the process.)
Right now, she’s a fan of Latvian brand Talented, which dresses both sexes. Women’s clothes by Lithuania’s LeMuse also earn high praise. In Estonia, she’s in awe of Ellen Richard, a new brand by designer Kristi Pärn.
Skin and the environment. Cosmetics need to play nice with both. At Mimesis, they do. Nearly 30 Estonian brands (probably the most you’ll find in one place) and 20 imported ones. With wine tips to boot, if owner Kerli is around. Her being a certified sommelier and all.
Mimesis staff knows their stuff. So ask. Or head straight to the peat mask section. Can’t go wrong with the peat mask section.

Villapai is a nature- and community-friendly vision of retail for kids and their parents. Its wool is sourced from a farmer in Lahemaa National Park and spun into incredibly soft yarn in old mills, without breaking its fibers. That softness turns into pants, vests, dresses, gloves, and coveralls. Alpaca wool products are the newest addition to the soft-as-a-hug line-up.
Villapai also carries select products from other makers. Want a lovely example? Retro-styled teddy bears made from fabric scraps.
Ear pin: The shop is also famous for its carry slings and superb advice on babywearing. Ask for Kadri, one of just two certified babywearing consultants in the country.

From Asian handicrafts to hookahs, clothing and semiprecious stone jewelry. Without breaking the bank. UU started 20 years ago in an old-town cellar and was as much an incense-infused escape for artsy souls as a retail space. The store may have grown into a bona fide chain, but founders still personally trek through India, China, Indonesia, Thailand, and Nepal to source their goods.
Brain pin: One of the cofounders is so committed to scouting merchandise in Asia, he only visits Estonia in the summer. As a result, the Telliskivi shop alone boasts 4,000 different items.
A cornucopia for women drawn to light, romantic hues and floral themes. What started as a lifestyle blog is now a store packed with handpainted furniture, decorative items, and clothing. And Annie Sloan chalk paints. And what’s arguably Estonia’s richest selection of cabinet knobs.
