    Speciality Shops: Ceramics from Spain

    Ceramics from Spain

    After spending some time observing the folkdancing at La Merce festival, we began exploring Barri Gotic's narrow side streets (perhaps better described as alleyways). This medieval district was fascinating with its intriguing architecture and interesting little shops.

    One of these shops is La Caixa de Fang, where shelves high and low held attractively displayed ceramics made by Spanish artisans.

    As we rambled about the store looking for the perfect Christmas gift for our son and his wife, the vivid colors caught our eye and we found just the right gift.

    I was hoping to visit again to do a little more looking and shopping here, but our time was limited and we hadn't taken a bus tour of the city yet. Ah well, perhaps this is just another reason to return!

    Rituals: Home-spa products

    by glamourprincess Written Aug 4, 2009

    This shop was new to me, but I see from their website there are shops all around Europe!
    I really liked the concept of delicious bath and body products and scented products for the home. The stores were so peaceful and relaxing and filled with so many lovely scents. I'm not sure about the quality of the ingredients in the products as I only bought scented candles. It's really cheap so I'm not expecting top quality.

    What to buy: I loved the scented candles.

    What to pay: 4 euro - 25 euro

    PapaBubble: Homemade candy

    by glamourprincess Written Aug 4, 2009

    Papabubble is a really fun shop. They sell hard candy and what makes it so special is that you actually get to see them work in store! They'll be rolling or chopping or whatever it takes to make sweets. And of course you can buy all sorts of hard candy made in the shop, a huge selection of flavors from hot cinnamon to strawberry to mint.. I had a hard time trying to choose, I wanted them all.. they're so colorful and cute, and typically handmade!

    What to buy: I bought a huge jar of mixed candies and some for my friends and family!

    What to pay: 8-10 Euro

    Speciality Shops: Shopping During the Month Of AUGUST!

    by listenandlearn Written Jun 23, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    August happens to be the month for the local people, because it's fairly hot about 30 celcius or a bit hotter, locals would go to the provinces, by the water or up in the mountain where it's coller...per say. So, not that the weather is fairly hot that stores closes, the truth is because it's the holiday break locals choose to be away from their business. However, like El Corte Ingles remains open nearly all year round, the major feastas such as Dec. 25, Jan. 1 and few more important feastas the dept. store El Corte Ingles close. If your into going outlets, there are few of them although they are outside Barcelona, so, you probably need a car. Also, a bit more information as you sound like you enjoy shopping, all month of July, we do have big time sales in all major stores, at times you will come across 50% off the selling price. Have a great time here in Barcelona! Enjoy your holiday although always keep extra precaution as we do have incredibly professional pickpocketers...pretending to be tourists and sometimes they like to pretend to be speaking French or other language but Catalan or Spanish...so wear a moneybelt and know your surroundings. Make copies of your passports, your credit cards and any important documents you may have, make copies of it. Have a ball and have a safe wonderful memorable holiday here! cheers!

    Caelum: Caelum: Celestial delicatessen

    by Belsaita Updated Aug 30, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Caelum shop/cafe
    1 more image

    "Caelum" is the Latin word for Heaven. Very appropriate name!

    This place sells crafts and foods such as pastries, cookies, wine, honey and preserves, made by monks and nuns from several monasteries around Spain. But, apart from buying some nice presents there.... you can try it, as it is as well a fine eatery (more less a "salon de the"). Recently they have added a new room at ground level with a few tables, but better go down steps... and you will spoil yourself in a unique place (there were once the old Jewish Baths, about 400 years ago)

    What to buy: Everything I tried was delicious. Anyway, my favourites are pieces of sugar-preserved orange covered by dark chocolate made from nuns of Vallbona (Tarragona), as well the little fruit-shaped marzipans from Sevilla. Great gifts to take back home too.

    What to pay: Top quality items are never cheap, but you can have a tea with pastries for about 4-5 euros.

    Papabubble: Papabubble: Sweets, sweets, sweets!!!

    Papabubble

    A sweet finding! When accompanying a friend to the main Post office, this little shop called our attention. We entered; it was a paradise of colourful handmade sweets and lollipops. You can buy a basic bag of these, or nice gift boxes. Best thing: you can see how they make the sweets, and seemed to be having great fun doing their work!

    Have a look at its website, it's great.

    Cuchillería Roca: need a knife?

    by Belsaita Updated Aug 30, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shop dates from 1911, and it keeps it's old-fashioned but elegant Viennese style. Pay a visit to Cuchillería Roca, it’s worth it, even just to admire the building (listed as Barcelona’s History and Arts Patrimony)

    Of course, if you need something sharp... it is your place. They say they have more than 9000 different kind of knifes, scissors and any related items.

    In any case, do not miss Plaça del Pi during your visit to Barcelona. Is one of the most charming spots on the Old Town. This square and the next one (plaça de Sant Josep Oriol) are well know for the beautiful church (església del Pi and its 'Giants'), as well for its bars and terraces. As well, there you can find a small but interesting art market on weekends.

    Peines y Cepillos Ciutad: need a comb??

    by Belsaita Updated Aug 30, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you walk along Portal del Angel, you will be easily distracted by so much people, noise, and bright modern windows of the fashion shops. But please pay a little attention and you'll find one of the finest gems between Barcelona's oldest shops.

    They sell combs and hair accessories. The family business dates from 1882, even at a different location. On 1922 it was open at its current address at Portal del Àngel. Since them, a mandatory visit for all ladies, being local or visitors :)

    Colmado Quilez: All you can dream on delicatessen food

    Colmado Quilez - Barcelona
    1 more image

    Not yet another food shop. Even not the usual delicatessen shop. Colmado Quilez is an institution here in Barcelona. Since 1940, one of the best known stores of Barcelona, and even out of the city and the country boundaries.

    You will see the most strange and delicious local and foreign delicacies on its crowded 16 windows: caviar, fine oils and vinegars, wines, pastries, preserves, liquors, chocolates... They claim having more than 4.000 references on food items, apart of their 3.500 of vines. As well, they have their own products, like its special coffee mix, or their cava (elaborated by Mont-Ferrant’s winery). So, it may be a good place to buy these unusual souvenirs you were looking for. And the best thing: its not a hype place. Even of course it's not cheap, you will not pay for a funky wrap there, but for real good stuff.

    Candy Shops: Satisfy your sweet tooth

    by karenincalifornia Updated Jul 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Candy display in Barcelona

    The candy stores in Barcelona (and all of Spain, for that matter) are quite different from US candy stores. US stores focus much more on chocolate. Spanish stores focus on gummy type of candies, and they seem to have everything. This picture, taken at the Mercat, is typical. You can buy a bagful of gummy eggs, if that suits you. Most of the objects, however, are unidentifiable. No matter what they are, you have to admit they are kind of pretty.
