If you're interested in Swedish handicrafts, the finest outlet along Lake Vättern is Konsthantverkarna, Järntorgsgatan 2 (tel. 019/10-79-05), a shop in central Örebro run by professional craft workers. No junk is allowed here, and the crafts are not only well made but charming; they are ideal for gifts and souvenirs.
