What’s this?

What is behind this façade? What could be impossible? Or what could Impossible be? I’m about to show you, for behind these lovely old walls lies the Barcelona shop of  Impossible Project, a truly wonderful initiative, which has ensured that anyone who owns (or wants to own) a Polaroid camera, can continue to use one…

Maians

Last year, when I showed you a certain shop in the Born, I told you of my love for Maians shoes, and how the style has made my heart beat faster ever since I was little. So you can imagine my delight, when I saw that Maians has opened a beautiful shop, right here, in Barcelona! Fancy checking it out? Great! Let’s shop: Maians.

Carrer Sagristans 9

A couple of weeks ago a friend told me there was a new shop in town and suggested I check it out.

Ohlala Plaza - Carrer Valldonzella

If there is one thing I really like about the dark days before Christmas, it is the cosy atmosphere on the streets in the evening, when shops are still open and ablaze with light. Recently, I found myself taking images of shops in the evening, and so I thought I’d share some with you, of shops that I think are worth a visit for the quality or uniqueness of their products. Enjoy!

Carrer del Duc 12

It’s not often that I come across a shop where I covet a large part of its collection, but Duke, on Carrer del Duc number 12, is one of those shops, and lucky for me, it’s really close to where I live. Come, I’ll show you…
