- L. Edelstam Art and Antiques, which is moving their showroom of 1700s antiques and 1900s design from Karlavägen in Stockholm to the square here in Djursholm.
- Skandiamäklarna, the estate agents who already have an office at Vendevägen 9, on the square and are moving over to the old SEB space because it suits them better.
- Potentially a beautician.
On the 18th February 2017, our smartest restaurant local restaurant will close. Owner Sarah Korduner Izosimov has run Yolo for 2½ years but has not had the weekday evening visitors that she would have liked. Danderyds Nyheter reports that the idea of getting dressed up to come out to dinner on a weekday hadn't pulled in enough diners to make it worth keeping the restaurant open.
It isn't just Yolo that is leaving. Recently, we lost the Djursholm branch of SEB bank, though we do still have the cash machine (thankfully). Moving into the large space left behind is a combination of businesses:
The clothing store Dressroom moved into Stockholm last year. This year, both the travel agents Travel Beyond and the opticians Optiker have closed.
What is the future for our local square? What do you think of all the changes?
Catch it before Thursday - 'Färger i mitt liv' - is worth going to check out at Djursholm library in the next two days. See below for the map. Let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook!
The newest addition to Danderyd's art galleries - Galleri Baginski - has a large collection of new artwork for sale and they are launching the 'Let's Art' exhibition tomorrow (Saturday 21st May 2016). We snuck in and took a peek yesterday. See the gallery's website for better photos than we took!
The 180m2 gallery is tucked in at the back of the estate where Flugger Färg is. There is parking. The gallery is open from 11am to 4pm on Saturday and 11am to 3pm on Sunday. It is also open every weekday from 12 noon to 6pm. For more information and lots of photos of the artwork, see their website: www.baginski.se
I'm an English gal with a Swedish husband and children living permanently in Danderyd. These are my thoughts on what is going on around here.
