Flamingos Gallery: vintage clothing and young designers
Article updated 10 May, 2017.
Flamingos Gallery is like Barcelona itself, but in shop form: innovative, colourful and original. It sells pieces and items by young designers.
Carrer Tallers 68
metro: Universitat (L1 L2)
Monday - Saturday 11am-9pm
from 5 euros
The Raval is Barcelona’s “alternative” quarter: original and cosmopolitan, it plays host to a seemingly never-ending range of increasingly wacky shops! As you may have seen in our article on Shopping in Barcelona: find the perfect quarter for you, it’s also a vintage shopper’s paradise.
Flamingos Gallery is one of the shops which make up the charm of the Raval, with its quirky, bright and playful décor and its range of unique pieces. A fun place to explore!
Flamingos Gallery: sister-shop to Flamingo’s Vintage Kilo
Flamingos Gallery is, first and foremost, the younger sibling of the famous Flamingo’s Vintage Kilo. Not that it’s that much smaller…
Flamingo’s Vintage Kilo, on Carrer Ferlandina 20 (also in the Raval) is famous for its innovative concept, which consists of selling vintage clothes by the kilo.
Instead of buying articles individually, the shop acquires stock by bulk. Resale prices are generally much cheaper than in some of Barcelona’s other vintage shops, so it’s well worth a trip!
Flamingos Gallery: space for designers
The concept behind Flamingos Gallery isn’t the same as at Flamingo’s Vintage Kilo, and not all products are sold by weight. The store is, in fact, split into several different areas.
Of course, there are plenty of vintage pieces on offer, but alongside that, you’ll find items by up-and-coming designers, and an area where you can have T-shirts and other garments personalised.
Flamingos Gallery offers a wide variety of items, from high-fashion clothing to vintage and rock pieces, for both men and women. It also stocks accessories, from brooches to costume jewellery, scarves to sunglasses. Everything you might need to update your look!
Ok…how much will all this cost me?
The best thing is that the prices here are completely accessible, with many pieces of jewellery at around the 5 euro mark, sunglasses from 15-20 euros and pieces of clothing from 10-20 euros. Of course, some articles are more expensive, but generally speaking, Flamingos is a cheap place to shop.
