Vintage Shopping in Barcelona: My 5 Favorites


Where to Vintage Shop in Barcelona


The vintage shopping in Barcelona is pretty spectacular. That's one of the reasons why I LOVE Barcelona so much. Did you get a chance to check out my previous post, 5 Things That I Love About Barcelona by the way?? As a die-hard vintage lover, I was pleasantly surprised to find so many awesome vintage shops in Barcelona. They were so close to each other too. The shops were right in line with the vintage shopping that I'm used to in New York City. 

For the past few years, I've been vacationing in Lima, Peru. As I confessed in my I Love Lima Peru post, it's always been a struggle to find vintage stores in Lima. On my last trip, I learned that they are pretty much hidden and only fashion forward locals know about them. And I'm still heart broken that The Vintage Club in Lima has closed. I can't tell you how cool it was to finally be able to do some hard core vintage shopping while on vacation in Barcelona. 

I fell in love with the vintage shops in Barcelona because they had so much charm and an awesome variety of vintage pieces. While I drooled over so much while shopping, I had no space whatsoever in my luggage to bring them back with me. Sadly, I had to walk away from all the vintage pieces that caught my eye. I can't tell you how true it is that nothing haunts us like the vintage we didn't buy. The good news is that I'm already planning to go back to Barcelona next summer! I'll be bringing back tons of sweet vintage finds for sure. I'll also be checking out more vintage shops. Check out five Barcelona vintage shops that I absolutely adored:

Vintage Shopping in Philadelphia: My Top 3

3 Awesome Places to Shop for Vintage in Philadelphia

I adore Philadelphia! I love history, good food and vintage shopping. Philly is one of those cities that fulfills all the things I look for when traveling. I've been going to Philly since I was a teenager and have totally done all the touristy things. Now when I visit I want to go where the locals eat and hang out. I also want to shop like a local. 

When I first starting blogging my Philly trips were like scavenger hunts when it came to finding vintage stores. I was told there was some really awesome vintage shopping in Philadelphia but where were the stores? I read every article on vintage shopping in Philly that I had Googled but when I showed up to most of the stores they had moved or closed down forever. 
After a few frustrating hours of not finding any vintage shops I finally discovered one and then two others nearby. I love it when vintage stores are close to each other. Don't you?? Check out my favorite three places to vintage shop in Philadelphia below. I'll explore more vintage shops on my next trip to Philly!!
