Goodies for sale

Sorry to have kept you waiting today! I’ve been doing some DIY in my home and as a result I was too nackered to write this post last night, and too sleepy to do so early this morning! Technical glitches delayed things ever further, but here it is, a new installment in the BCN Handmade series, in which we meet the people behind Novedades.

They are: Maria del Mar (or Mar for short) of Lolitas BCN, the lovely lady who started Novedades and who makes so many different things with textiles as their basis; Imanol Ossa, the gentle man who first joined Mar at Novedades, and who brings new life and adds light to all things discarded, and Marta of Literatura Vertical and Lamagaprints, the latest addition to Novedades and the friendly creative behind all the items at Novedades that have graphic design at their heart.

Carrer Peu de la Creu 24

On Carrer Peu de la Creu 24 we can find Novedades, a shop I discovered one morning, while having a coffee at Satan’s Coffee Corner, and which is well worth a visit. Why? you may ask… Well, because it sells an interesting range of items which were all made in Barcelona. In fact, most of them were made right there!

Bottled lamps

The lovely bottled lamps were made there, as were the colourful clothes.
