Rebajas – Sale shopping in Barcelona
With all this talk of the crisis we are simply happy to hear about rebajas as it is in Spanish or rebaixes in Catalan, which refers to sales shopping. The winter sales in Barcelona start today as it is the day after ‘Festival of the Kings’, usually last up until the end of February or early March if you are lucky. Now this city isn’t as fashionably popular as say, Madrid London or Paris but there is an abundance of boutique brands in lets say El Born and other districts, which make it a very worthwhile shopping trip. Commercial fashion brands are heavily stocked in department stores and luxury brands litter the boulevard of Passeig de Gràcia.
Many stores already have discounted prices in store but this is nothing compared to the markdown after Three Kings Day. The first day is known to be somewhat frantic, so we recommend that you grease your elbows to give you that extra edge for pushing through the crowd and a very strong breakfast.
