One man’s garbage is another man’s treasure.
For this reason, many flea markets take place very often in Barcelona.
Second-hand shopping is not only very trendy, it is also a good deed: it avoids waste and garbage overproduction, it enables sellers to make a bit of money while getting rid of something they don’t need anymore, and the buyers to get it for a lower price than in a store. Plus, you could find something rare or original, a small treasure which couldn’t be found anywhere else.
Stop overconsumption and go for second-hand shopping in Barcelona flea markets!
Clothes, dolls, books, movies, decorations… any item you can think of can be found.
