Bric a brac in valencia

Bric a brac, flea markets, vintage stores and charity shops in Valencia are far more rare than in more northern European countries. In general, the Spaniards are not so attracted to second hand items as expats.

Vintage and second hand clothes outlets are dotted around Carmen especially and the odd one in Russafa. A few antique stores can be discovered here too.


An opportunity to bathe in the experience of a local flea market in Valencia takes place nearly every Sunday just off Blasco Ibanez. Stands are squeezed into an open space under the shadow of the Mestalla soccer stadium. They offer everything from wonderfully unrecognisable and tacky objects to large pieces of furniture.

Naturally many dealers attempt to achieve the highest deal possible with foreigners, especially since the market is also frequented by tourists. Lovers of the hunt for bargains or quirky items can, however, often be successful.
