Vintage Shops-Madrid, Spain-Malasaña Neighborhood(Tribunal Metro)

What a wonderful find! I met this gorgeously dressed woman in the Sol neighborhood who, after a quick convo and photo shoot, directed me to the best neighborhood in Madrid, Malasaña, with streets lined with little boutiques and vintage shops! Note: most shops are closed during siesta(2-5:30).  I bought a several things for 5 euros in La Mona Checa-my favorite!!! I'll definitely be back. Check out THIS ARTICLE from a Spanish blogger. She interviewed the owners of Biba Vintage and The The Storage!

  1. Next time I'm in Madrid, I need to hit up this place! You have to go to Milan though, I have this map that's a fashion guide to all of Milan, when I was there we went to the Vintage section and this street was lined with all these cool shops....but of course my camera was dead most of the trip and I forgot the adapter. #Poorplanning lol
