    The shop is on your left

    I entered the shop because of the lovely architecture but I got immediately impressed by the outstanding style of the clothes. Very colourful, original and somehow new. I bought a very nice dress, but they have also some jewels and bags.

  • Local handmade products and antiques

    The area of El Carmen is full of back streets, which in the afternoon become alive with shops filled with antique Spanish goods, glistening with gold, or intriguingly grubby. In other squares, hidden away are the shops where in the back, local artists use old techniques to make painted ceramics for reasonable prices. Take some time just to wander, and see what you find.

    I found this cute little second hand bookshop, the only one in the city the specialises in international books with a book exchange option. The owners, Kelly and Andy were super helpful and I picked myself up some great books for my flight home. They've also got some snacks, and lovely hand made greeting cards.

    Street Hawker: El Torro!!! - Don't go home without one!

    Tina and her Bully!!
    4 more images

    OK , this is Not a shop!- We were sitting outside La Bodogueta (see my nightlife tip) enjoying a drink or 2!, when we were approached by a hawker selling lighters and other tacky souvenirs.

    We weren't really paying much attention, until he set down a toy black bull that scurried across the table - For Tina it was love at first sight! She had to have it!!

    After some haggling Tina was the happy owner of Bully, all for 8 euros. (She was even happier when she saw one the same in a shop for 15 euros!)

    Even better, Bully had a theme tune - as he set off running, a fanfare and Torro!! could just be heard above our laughs and mickey taking of Tina. Luckily she kept him in her bag for the rest of the night.

    She later justified her buy as a present for her husband!! Hmmmmmmm!
    Well 2 years later, Bully is still alive and kicking!

    What to buy: Got to have a moving musical Bully! Haggle with the street Hawkers...

    What to pay: 15 euros seen in a gift shop. Tina haggled for hers and got Bully for 8 Euros

    Paella Kit
    3 more images

    Valencia Airport has a few shops to while away the time waiting for your flight home, and buying those last minute gifts.

    I usually like to buy foodie stuff if I haven't already bought anything from the local shops or supermarket.

    This time I spotted a selection of Paella kits including a Paella pan.

    I chose Paella de Marisco (seafood) There were also Beef, Chicken and Vegetable varieties.

    As well as Biscuits (for my parents) and sweets (for work) I bought a fridge magnet - again for work - its now traditional to bring one back when any of us have been away.

    What to buy: Rioja wine, Agua de Valencia, Sangria, beers, spirits

    Cheeses, cold meats, olives etc

    Paella pans

    T-shirts, fridge magnets etc

    Perfumes and cosmetics

    What to pay: From 1 euro upwards

    Near City of Science: Malls 2

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'll update the name once I look on the map...forgot the name. Anyway, once I got off at the end of the bus 95 line (the end towards the sea side) I saw this huge mall. Didn't get the chance to stroll through it, but I guess it's worth the visit for someone on the shopping frenzy!!!

    This is more for me...Many average priced shops in this Mall...Great for a bit of shopping. It has Mango, Zara, C&A and many other shops for almost any wallet :o)
    It's right across the street from Kris Abadia hotel, another plus for it in that matter :O)

    Il Corte Ingles

    by ocean_fire Written Dec 2, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    near Turia metro st, at night

    It's a chain of department stores (probably that's why they call it "English") that looks like Harrod's ..it has everything and it's a bit pricy for my tastes...but that's just me...Some people might have a bigger budget for shopping and then it could become interesting.

    There is one at Turia metro station (near our Kris Abadia Hotel), one at Colon metro station and I saw one even at the City of Science.

    What to buy: anything, everything...it has it all this Corte Ingles

    What to pay: more than average for sure

    Pimkie: Cheap fashionable clothes!

    by maria_mullah Written Apr 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lot's of cright colours, skimpy skirts and dresses, a multitude of
    tops in various styles, but nothing for the bigger woman, unfortunately.
    Trendy clothes at a reasonable price. I never miss the opportunity to
    stock up on cool clothes from Pimkie whenever I come to Spain!

    Mercadona: Everything from fruit to liquor...

    by maria_mullah Written Apr 4, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a chain of stores which sells everything you could possibly
    want when it comes to food and drink. A broad selection of wine
    and other alcoholic beverages.
    Try the own brand - Hacendado, it's cheaper but still tastes
    real good!

    Carrefour: Hypermarkets

    by MaheshSamtani Written Feb 17, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the many stores Carrefour has in Valencia

    The worlds second largest retail chain stores - Carrefour has an important presence in Valencia with aprox 10 stores you will find all that you can normally find back home at a supermarket. You might probably find them to be bigger in size over here and at pretty reasonable prices. Shopping in one of these strores is pretty comfortable as they are open from 9 in the morning till 10 at night. You have one just in front of the city of sciences.

    What to buy: Any basics from eating to clothing

    El Corte Ingles - Department Stores: A lot under one roof

    Corte Ingles - Nuevo Centro
    1 more image

    Probably one of the most popular names of Spain - El Corte Ingles are huge departmental stores you probably have already heard of. You find them in all big cities and are now starting to get into many smaller cities as well. In Valencia we have about 5 of them so you will not find it difficult to find th nearest to where you are. I would recommend you to visit the store that they have at the area of the city of sciences, one of their latest and the biggest they have right now in Spain ( Feb 2007 ) with 8 floors of all kinds of merchandise and 6 floors of parking. thats really huge ( Pintor Maella, 37, Centro comercial Avenida de Francia ) The structure of the building is quite attractive and the shopping space is quite comfortable. You can eat at their restaurants and shop till you fall or till your credit card says no more - so its upto you.

    What to buy: Name it - they have it
