Vintage & Secondhand (Spain/Portugal)

Fashion Jul 18, 2016 No Comments

In forgoing fast-fashion, I discovered plenty of secondhand and vintage shops throughout my travels in places including Madrid, Granada, Valencia, Lisbon and Porto.  Personally, I can’t always afford the sustainable and fair trade brands – thrifting has been my alternative for environmentally-friendly shopping. Here’s a few of the shops that stood out to me and are worth the visit.

Magpie Vintage // Madrid, Spain

The first secondhand shop I visited abroad was worth the visit. Character and wide selection of coolness had me in the dressing room multiple times.

La Mona Checa // Madrid, Spain

La Mona Checa is a cute shop across the way from Magpie. Although a tiny bit pricier, they carry fun bombers, floral dresses, and a large collection of scarves/bandanas!

Flamingos Vintage Kilo // Madrid, Spain

This shop sells vintage by the kilo! The eclectic jumpers and dresses really stood out to me. There are other locations located throughout Spain.

Humana // Madrid, Spain

More of the equivalent to a Good Will, you can find some unique pieces on Humana’s separated vintage rack. With stores located around the city, be ready to search for the vintage find!

Ornitorrinco // Porto, Portugal

Near the Clerigos Tower, I stumbled upon Ornitorrinco. They had a smaller selection, but I found an awesome shirt from the one euro section (look out for the next post)!

Naftalina Vintage Shop // Lisbon, Portugal

Finally, Naftalina Vintage Shop in Lisbon may be one of my favorites. It’s a small shop carefully curated, and filled with 70s vintage clothes and décor. The owner was extremely friendly, and it was difficult to narrow down my purchase due to limited room in my luggage!
