The shop is located in the heart of the town, in the main pedestrian street, at Jernbanegade 6B. According to what they say on their website, Flying Tiger Copenhagen claims they have what you need (pencils, handcream, batteries, napkins…), what you dream of (design lamp, embroidered cushion, tea pot…) and things you didn’t know existed. In the last category, let’s say Flying Tiger is very creative ! Flying Tiger Copenhagen’s dedicated design team has won numerous international design awards for their imaginative work.
The shops are packed with 1500 items, with a new collection every second week. If you stroll down Jernbanegade, don’t miss a little tour in this unusual shop ! You’ll find colourful products, that are also quite cheap. Here are the latest Easter products from Flying Tiger you can find in Nykøbing.
Last year, the 15th of June (2018) a Søstrene Grene shop opened in Nykøbing Falster, at Jernbanegade 23. If you’re not familiar with the concept, let me tell you a story. Everything started in the town of Århus in 1973 when Knud Cresten Vaupell Olsen and his wife Inger Grene open a little shop, that they call Søstrene Grene (The Grene Sisters). But more than a shop, the team creates a whole experience. Inspired by ballet, classical music and Danish design, they invent a new universe shaped by storytelling, that we nowadays know as “The World of Anna and Clara”. So who are these two “sisters” ?
Anna is a creative artist, and Clara focus on being practical and organised. In fact, these fictional “ghosts” incarnate all what the shop has to offer. Let’s start the tour !
Like some other Scandinavian shops, Søstrene Grene is mapped like a labyrinth, forcing you to walk by all the different sections. The tour starts with the decoration and home accessories universe.
You can also find decorative and practical items for children, as well as numerous toys and colouring books.
Once we leave the children universe, time to have fun with all the crafts and hobbies section ! Pencils, paint, yarn, stickers, paper… It’s impossible not to find anything to keep you busy during rainy days.
And if you have to throw a partie and wrap presents, the two sisters have all what you need !
Last but not least, you end the tour in the cooking and delicatessen section, where you can find very interesting products.
Emma Horskjær has 5 babies. Her 4 children, and her shop, which also bears her name. “When I opened my little boutique 10 years ago, I had no idea I would end up in a bigger shop in the main pedestrian street”, she says.
Emma is 42 years old, from Belgian and Spanish descent. In 2010, as a single mom with not much money, she took a leap of faith. Instead of working in a big brand’s store, she opened her own independent tiny shop, in Langgade, a street in the center of the town. Her trademark : colourful clothes from Paris and Italy, for trendy versatile women.
However, the location of the shop she named “By Emma” was not the best, as most of the potential clients and tourists prefer to walk in the main pedestrian streets, Østergågade and Jernebanegade, not far from there. That’s why she moved here few years ago, in a much bigger boutique, at Østergågade 29. It was a very big gamble, but it definitely paid of !
“I sell at least 20 to 30 pieces of clothing every day”, Emma says. During holidays, the shop attracts a lot of tourists, mostly from Germany, Holland, Norway and Sweden. “We also see some girls from Copenhagen. They come in a group of 8-10 to spend the week-end. I always remember them.” Emma has indeed a very good memory. “I love to remember clients, to know what they like. Sometimes I help men to chose presents for their wife, because I know them as clients”.
If you love colours and patterns, By Emma is right for you. “That’s why people come here”, she confirms. The small prices are also another reason of her success. For instance, for only 359 DKK (48€ / $55), you can get a very unique pair of pants, the piece she sells the most and what she’s famous for.
“Every 8-10 weeks, I renew the whole collection”, Emma says. “And I buy only few pieces for each size”. That’s why if you see something you like, you should buy it right away, because you’ll never see it again or find it elsewhere ! The next step ? A webshop, that should open very soon. I’m sure this will be a success as well… another one.

Originally opened in the early 1900′, Den Gamle Købmanshandel (The Old Shop) at Færgestræde 1A is a must see in Nykøbing Falster. It is located right in the heart of the town. It is part of the Lolland-Falster Museum, in the same building as Czarens Hus (The Tzar’s House).
At the beginning, the customers could buy everything that was needed in the daily household: food, clothes, tools, paints, spirits, beer and soft drinks, clogs, spices, chocolates, sweets, bicycle tires and even tar. Later in 1955, a merchant called Jørgen Skaaning bought the store, which was given as part of the Museum.
It hasn’t changed ever since ! Along with some old products exhibited to show Nykøbing’s history, you can buy fresh coffee, Viking mead, handmade candies, locally made brushes, old toys, books about the town’s history, and plenty of other interesting goods. You can also find some seasonal products for Christmas or Easter.
At the counter, this is also the Tourist Information desk, and where you buy the tickets for the Museum. The shop is open from 10.00 to 16:00 Mondays to Fridays, and only to 14:00 on Saturdays. It is closed on Sundays, and there might be some changes during holidays. You can see the opening hours here.
