It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
Über Den Wolken – more than just a vintage store
Über Den Wolken
Über Den Wolken is a collaborative that consists of vintage fare, gallery, cooking workshops and more. Situated in Raval the project fuses all types of passion uniting creative cooks, designers and artists alike. Trends as we all know, come and go so the focus on reinventing style definitely offers a more affordable and individual alternative.
Über’s finds have been carefully sourced from Italy and Spain with Julia’s very attentive eye. The collections found in store very much reflect the key vintage movements and styles of Paris, Berlin and London. We asked Julia who owns the store, a few questions to find out more about her venture – particularly as we have found some cute gems as of late in this little spot in Raval.
How long have you had the local?
I’ve had the shop for one year and a few months.
What triggered you to make it a collaborative space?
I’m a very active and productive person, I think just being in a shop all day I’d go crazy! So I decided to create a space where more things can happen. Also I think that’s probably the only way to survive nowadays in Barcelona.
Where do you source your items?
I source my items from various places. Its hard to say, a lot of the time its just luck. My favorite is Paris though, I love the shops and flea markets there!
We heard cooking classes were on the list, can you tell us more?
I have a small kitchen in the back of the shop which is one of my favorite things about this space. We’ve had various creative and interesting courses there, from Vegan to Frushi, just 4 or 5 people. They were absolutely amazing. We are currently working on extending the food aspect of Über so keep checking our Facebook for some exciting healthy new projects on the way !!
I did a course here in Barcelona some years ago before going to south america for a bit, and fell in love with the unique mixture of creativity, functionality and the inspiring surroundings of this city. The weather and the sea also play a big role to be honest.
