2 favorite shops in Barcelona

EN

Holiday in Barcelona is not complete without a bit of shopping right? Like a tourist I didn’t leave without souvenirs and a city like Barcelona I’m not afraid of missing out the worlds chain shops. In fact I didn’t visit any H&M’s or Zara’s at all. However I did go to a Mango shop and to a few malls too but a city like Barcelona has more to offer.
My focus was to shop at the smaller boutiques and shops.

Remember I was lost and happy in Barri Gòtic district? Here lies the hidden gems of small boutiques and shops and I’ve found 2: Wasabi and All You Knit Is Love.

Wasabi is not a sushi related food place but a clothing store! I promise! And it’s a cute one too. All You Knit Is Love is obviously a wool shop which I can’t deny but to love it. Please check them out here below!

Vakantie in Barcelona is niet compleet zonder een beetje winkelen toch? Souvenirs kopen is natuurlijk onvermijdelijk en een stad als Barcelona ben ik niet bang om wereld merken te missen. Sterker nog ik heb de H&M’s en Zara's overgeslagen. Behalve de Mango winkel en een paar heuse winkelcentra, maar Barcelona heeft veel meer te bieden.
Ik wilde naar de kleinere boetiekjes en kleine ondernemingen.

In de wijk Barri Gòtic was ik heerlijk verdwaald tussen de smalle straatjes en hier liggen de verborgen juweeltjes van kleine boetiekjes en winkels. Ik heb er onder andere 2 gevonden: Wasabi en All You Knit Is Love.

Wasabi is geen sushi restaurant maar een schattig kledingwinkel! All You Knit Is Love is natuurlijk een wol winkel die ik natuurlijk niet kan ontwijken. Kijk ze hier beneden!


All You Knit Is Love
Address: Carrer de la Barra de Ferro, 8, 08003 Barcelona,

Firstly, what a lovely shop name! The shop owner is a lovely woman with an UK accent and clearly has a good wool and yarn stash in shelves. The shop also focus on recycled yarn which is a thumbs up. 
So I didn't leave the shop without spending some Euro's here and this cute nifty business card. 
 These are recycled. 


Wasabi
Address: Carrer Avinyó, 29, 08002 Barcelona

Wasabi is a shop I have discovered by accident! Their shop window is quirky because it has a Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland) gazing at you and plus the sale signs has lured me inside. 
Wasabi is clearly not a sushi restaurant. Thank you for letting me taking pictures!
Their style is girly, vintage and sweet. A style I dig!
They also sell men collection too.
 This is too cutely done! Everything wrapped up and stapled up! Almost like a take away bag.
