Palo Alto Market in Barcelona

January 5, 2017

This week-end is the first week-end of the month (and of the year, hope your holidays have been fun!), which means that there will be Palo Alto Market in Barcelona – a two-day, mostly open-air event where you can try street food from all around the world, enjoy live music, and get to know new local brands, designers and artists!

If you live in Barcelona, chances are you’ve at least heard of it, it’s a really popular event, and I thought it deserves a post, because being a designer market, it also features home furnishings and decor, so today I’ll show you the pictures I made in mid-December (they had a special pre-Christmas event, normally it’s only held on the first week-end of the month!), the ambience was cool and laid-back as ever, the food I tried was great, and there was a bunch of interesting designer items on display. Let’s take a tour!

Barcelona Let's go shopping

Singulares Inventory Room in Barcelona

January 3, 2017

Happy New Year, dearies!! This is my first post in 2017, and today I’ll tell you about some very cool shops and brands from Barcelona I saw in December at a local event entitled Singulares Inventory Room, organized by lifestyle and interior design magazine Singulares. It was the 5th edition of the pop-up event, created to showcase interesting new artists, designers, and charming vintage shops.  Singulares Inventory Room migrates between Spain’s two biggest cities, so the winter market in Barcelona will probably be followed by another event in Madrid in May. This was my first Singulares Inventory Room, and to be honest I was blown by the diversity and creativity gathered there. And it was a great place to shop Christmas presents too!

Rare vintage rugs from Morocco

Two sisters with a passion for artisanal craftwork bring hand-woven vintage Berber rugs from Morocco for their Hands and Lands shop. A 5-minute talk to either of them will make you fall in love with these pieces, their artistry and the history they hold.

A lovely vintage shop, which has two spaces – Carrer Providencia 16 in Barcelona’s Gracia, and at Mercantic in Sant Cugat. Apart from home furnishings, The Old Kitchen also sell chalk paint and offer furniture restoration workshops.

Hermano Gato

Love the quirky name and the logo  – “Brother Cat” of this project, which is mostly about plant-themed prints. So cool! Check out their online shop.
