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.
Affordable vintage designer furniture in Barcelona exists, and can be found in a variety of specialized stores throughout the city. It is hard to believe that such finds were once a rarity, as now there is a fab selection of places to pick up gems, some of which have been restored and others at brilliant prices that are sure to make your home look like a masterpiece from an interior design magazine.
There is always something to be said about straying from the well-trodden path and Joaquin Costa in Raval is no exception. On the same street as Les Topettes and hot dog takeaway spot The Dog is Hot, you can find Wilde, a store dedicated to vintage sunglasses. Owned by Venezuelan Cao Azuaje and Teppei Kikugawa from Japan, this store is perfect if you are seeking a good assortment of sunglasses as they stock styles from 1950 to 1990.
If you are like the girls in our office and have a soft spot for vintage finds you will love Brick Lane BCN – a pop up vintage market that takes place every month at different locations throughout the city under the premise that it brings the vibe of London to Barcelona.
Krystal-Joy is behind the concept, originally born in London this is a woman that isn’t shy when it comes to fashion. With extensive experience in the fashion industry that spans from working in the vintage department of Topshop, styling and producing fashion shows for the likes of Julien MacDonald and Temperly, Krystal-Joy noticed that Barcelona was missing cool, affordable vintage for both men and women like other European cities and created Brick Lane BCN.
