#1 Flamingos Vintage Kilo
“Receiving new vintage stock via the United States every week, our customers will find low prices due to our ‘per weight’ pricing structure. We are the only vintage store in Barcelona importing stock directly from and 100% made in the USA.
We decided to sell classic designs with a clear influence of American style, based around one simple idea: that the customer could buy fashion affordably, and per weight instead of per item. Our first vintage store opened in Madrid and in 2012 we opened the store in Barcelona.”

#2 Holala Vintage Shop
“At Holala we have been dedicating the last 40 years to our passion, vintage clothes and recycling. We travel over the whole world, visiting all the flea markets and the textile recycling industry to be able to carefully handpick the unique and best pieces of our taste, one by one. We suppose that we are one of the few in Europe that can offer vintage clothes of high quality, clothes not only from the United States but also from Japan, Europe, Canada and Australia.
After establishing our stores and warehouses in Paris, Los Angeles, Saint Tropez, Sitges and since 1978 also in Ibiza, we decided in 1992 to base Holala in Barcelona. We dedicated this new store to the urban culture. We are located next to the contemporary art centres and modern art museum of Barcelona (MACBA; Also worth a visit!)
At Holala you don’t just find vintage clothes, but also vintage furniture imported from France and the United States, vintage video games, skate and surf boards from the 80s, watches, sun/eyeglasses, magazines and books about art and fashion. And we like to host a lot of events, mostly street art exhibitions or pop music concerts!”
Adresses: Carrer Tallers 73, Plaza Castella 2 (next to Macba museum) / Barcelona

In the Born district, near the Picasso museum you can find the concept store Loisaida- a true representation of Lower East Side, New York with its own brand clothing, international brands, “new to you” and original quirky gifts.
Loisaida is full of retro-vintage clothes and accessories for both men and women. There is an interesting combination of new and old; sweaters folded next to an old typewriter, a 1970s record player next to socks, business cards placed in a long piece of carved wood with slots, and letters with the store’s name lying on the floor at the foot of a coat rack showing off a great pair of pants and shirts. Simply worth a visit!
