Best vintage shops in Barcelona by Admin

In Barcelona, there are hundreds of ways of spending your time – from visiting the most typical tourist spots, such as La Rambla, Sagrada Familia or other Gaudi’s breathtaking masterpieces to diving into Barcelona’s fashion spree. And that’s what we have done today. As you probably know, Barcelona is famous for the streets filled with exclusive shops like Gucci, Channel, Dolce&Gabbana, etc. However, not that many people know about the flourishing vintage shops and markets. We made a quick tour around the city and visited four amazing vintage shops. We made sure to take some amazing pictures just so you would see what it’s all about!


The first shop we visited was the vintage store named SOUL, situated at Carrer de Tallers. Crossing its thresholds, we found ourselves in a place that’s magical and a little dark filled not only with ordinary clothes but also with various kinds of disguises. See for yourself!

The second one was more casual and is maintained in the style of the past two decades. There, we found some 90’s style clothes like polo T-shirts, mom jeans, outworn Vans or Converse. What surprised us the most, was the large choice of football shirts! For anyone who loves old-school aura and football – we totally recommend it!

The greatest choice of accessories ever! Hats, all kinds of jewelry and neckerchiefs. When you enter the shop, you can definitely feel the 70’s vibe – the clothes are totally sublime and selected perfectly to capture the hippie era. Furthermore, the owner is very nice and helpful.

Let’s dive into the 50’s! This vintage shop is not only full of amazing clothes from a few decades ago, but has an extraordinary inside design as well. Unfortunately, not all the things are for sale, but still, it’s the great experience to admire the owner’s imagination.

Barcelona’s best Second-Hand & Vintage Markets by Admin

Barcelona is not just only for Art-Fanatics, Beach-Babes and Party-Animals, but also the perfect city for Vintage-Lovers who are always on the hunt at Fleamarkets and Secondhand-Stores for their perfect new spoil.

Just around the famous Ramblas, in the Barrio Gotic and the Raval, you will find a real vintage- and secondhand eldorado. Especially in the Carrer dels Tallers in the hip part of Raval, or in all the small streets around the Calle Ferran in El Gotico there are a lot of authentic and unconventional places to discover. Just as big as the variety of different shops is the amount of flea- and vintage markets. Depending on the day of the week you will be spoilt for choice. Here are some of the best Vintage-Markets, that you can not miss.

Encants Vells Flea Market

The Encants Vells Flea Market is Barcelona’s oldest and biggest market and easy accessible with the Metro (L1 or L2). It is located on Plaza Glories and without doubt one of the most impressive modern market buildings in Europe. Open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9h to 20h every week you can find an eclectic mix of secondhand wonders and vintage clothes, as well as nick-nacks and antiques to fill your home with. The combination of original architecture and hustle ‘n’ bustle, combined with the diversity of objects on offer and great views of the Agbar Tower make the Encants market an interesting place to visit. You should better get there early to avoid the crowd.


Flea Market Barcelona

Taking place once a month on a Sunday close to the Drassanes metro station and hidden behind the Maritime Museum, the Flea Market is one of the coolest street flea markets in Barcelona. Selling a huge range of things, from secondhand clothing, to books, bags, jewellery and household items, they seem to have it all. From mid-morning until around 7 in the evening you can visit the market and shop around for a good bargain and even offer to make trades. The Flea Market has even gained such popularity that it decided to create a second type of second hand market in the city, which they have dubbed Fleadonia. This market takes place close to La Filmoteca de Catalunya, at Plaça Salvador Seguí. The next flea market event is on the 11.03.2018.


Lost & Found

Only held once every three months, usually Open Air, Lost & Found boasts a huge range of vintage and secondhand items and clothes, located in the central Estació de França. Not only is Lost & Found flea market a place to discover new treasures, it is also a space to exchange ideas, mingle with friends, find inspiration and feel a part of the humongous and ever-growing vintage community in Barcelona. If you’ve become bored of your clothes or household items, then bring them to Lost & Found. There you can exchange products in return for something completely different.


Two Market

The Two Market factory sets up a new market, this time focusing on vintage clothing and accessories. This ecologically sustainable flea market takes place in the huge hall of L’Ovella Negra in Poble Nou. Following the motto “Reuse is the best way to recycle”, this vintage market attracts visitors and motivates them to follow this original and inventive goal. Grab some cheap pieces (starting at just one euro) in this fun and sustainable way.


Good luck and have fun rummaging!
