Joaquin Costa 62

After all that rain of the past days, the sun has started shining again, and it has made the world around me so much more colourful.  Speaking of which, I recently visited a shop which is a true explosion of colour and a veritable treasure trove of all things cute. Want me to show you? Ok, come with me…

The shop is called Fantastik, and it is located near Plaça Universitat, on Carrer Joaquin Costa number 62.

Insect pins

You’ll find an incredibly large selection of colourful, bizarre, curious and fun products. These have been sourced from Mexico, India, Bulgaria, Russia, Senegal and many more countries around the globe, and are great as gifts, to eat, to wear, to decorate or to use in your home.

All sorts

The bags (above) are cute, aren’t they? And I think the funky tiles (below) are so much fun!

The shrine

A wide range of religious parafernalia is also for sale, and although not quite my thing, their range is pretty gorgeous and kind of tempts me to add a little something somewhere in the Cute Suite…   which is just a couple of blocks away!

Beads

There are quite a few things I’d like to get from their household corner…

Glasses and plates

I love the metal plates, trays and bowls, and also the glasses made from recycled glass

Enamel teapots

The enamel tea pots are very cute, and what do you think about these raffia rugs (below)?

The altar

Make sure to have plenty of time when you visit, as there is so much to take in. I’ll be back for another wander soon. And who knows? I may even get something to jazz up my home…
