I’ve always been a hoarder and after moving to Barcelona and discovering this new passion for interior design I’ve also become a regular at the local flea markets and antique stores. Don’t these old pieces feel like they have so much character, so many stories to tell?! Anyways, a while ago I came across this article in AD España on the best Spanish online resources for shopping secondhand pieces, and thought it was worth sharing with my readers, because mixing old and new is always a good idea, don’t you think?
An online marketplace where you can sell and buy all sorts of collector’s items – from toys, coins and kitchenware to comic books, jewelry and sports souvenirs. The choice of furniture and home decor is huge too. If you’re a true hoarder, this place is your ultimate Spanish online flea market.
As you can deduce from the name, this is about IKEA. This is a free marketplace to buy and sell secondhand IKEA products.The website is available in Spanish and English languages and also offers video tutorials on assembling furniture from IKEA.
If you’re hunting down something specific and don’t want to pay too much for it, these three secondhand marketplace webs/apps is where you should look in the first place. Wallapop is the most famous of the three, but the others are worth a check too.
The name of this cool marketplace means “empty out your house”, and it is such a disappointment that its geography is limited to Madrid. Lots are distributed by houses in need of being emptied, and most prices are very attractive. Not to miss if you live in “la capital”.
A small store based in Navarra, specializing on mid-century vintage furniture from France, Italy, Germany, and etc. Tables, sofas and chairs are complemented with vintage accessories, wallpaper, and more.
Another online store offering a great selection of pieces from 1950s, 60s and 70s. Vintage wallpaper, tiles, rugs, fabrics, kitchenware, ceramics, glassware, and furniture.
Founded by photographers Bèla Adler and Salvador Fresneda, this shop offers mid-century vintage furniture and objects, along with their own industrial style designs from recycled noble wood made at their workshop in Corçà (Girona).
