A chic street of eclectic second-hand fashion finds

Word to the wise: If you feel like wandering, head a few blocks northeast to Calle del Doctor Dou and check out Blow, one of the best vintage shops in the city.

Riera Baixa in El Raval is where to go for high quality, second-hand designer clothes. Everything from vintage Yves Saint Laurent accessories to 50s Chanel goodies can be hunted down here.

Head to Le Swing, which has three locations in the area, to find those perfect wardrobe classics. While Lailo has stock from from every decade since the 30s whether its high-end collector pieces or odd wares relegated to bargain bins. A final favourite is at number 13, the boutique Carrousel, which has a well-edited selection of beautiful vintage items and accessories.
