One of my favorite things of going abroad or on holiday outside Spain is to look for vintage and antiques shops in the area I am visiting.
Although vintage is nowadays very popular in my country, especially in Barcelona, there’s something that has always caught my eye: the prices.
Yes, it might seem unnoticeable to you, but I’ve found that prices for second hand garments and other stuff here is quite high. Moreover, most of the things you can find at a vintage shop date from the 80s or 90s. We also have great vintage furniture shops in the city, with original furniture dating from the 60s and 70s. I really understand the prices in that case, although in the States it is easier to find cheaper prices. Check El Recibidor en Barcelona for great quality pieces for your home.
One of the things I always do when I visit the States – the paradise for vintage lovers – is keep a lot of space for the things I’ll shop during my trip. Below you can find me swooning over the many antiques and vintage garments at Playclothes, one of the best second hand shops in Burbank, California.
What’s your point of view? Do you find vintage garments and other stuff cheap where your live?
