1. Norli

"I discovered this workshop recently, which instantly became my favorite in town. They have a great assortment, and you can also find hair quality pens, and paper products. As a fun fact, this is the store there a scene was shot in the movie of “the worst person in the world.”"

6. Tanum Litteraturhuset

"What an incredible place. Cafe, restaurant, bar, conference/event location, book store, good place to meet friends, have drinks, do reading or working on the laptop...they're everything in one :)Outdoor seating in the summer is lovely.The crowd can sometimes be pretentious intellectual types (you know who you are, haha) - but never mind! People are pleasant and that's what matters. Not always the place to meet new friends or share a great conversation with a stranger, but that's a rare luxury to find in Norway anyway 😋😉I like the type of events that are held here. Grab a program or go on their website to see what's coming up.There are occasional literature events specifically for children, and that's super sweet. Political, social, environmental issues, educational and health-related topics, Open Mic and regularly occurring weekly activities, in addition to featuring different authors and books of course...and much more. Mainly, entrance to events is free of charge."
