Time to shop until you drop!

Here at barcelonablog, I’m very happy that the January sales have started. I haven’t checked them out properly yet, but I’ve seen some signs advertising up to 60 or 70% off the full price. That’s nothing to be scoffed at! The sales period lasts until the beginning of February so if you were thinking of making a trip to BCN to sample the great shopping it has to offer, you have plenty of time.

The main areas for shopping are in the center around Plaza Catalunya, Avenguda de Portal de l’Angel, and Passeig de Gracia. But don’t underestimate strolling off the beaten track to get some great finds in the Raval’s vintage shops, and the boutiques of the Old Town in Barri Gotic. El Born is an emerging fashion destination, what with its many great young up and coming designers.

Sale in a shop selling Sale signs. Brilliant!

If you need accommodation, as always, I will recommend barcelona-home.com. If you’re planning on making any self-respecting fashionista jealous with all your purchases, you need a comfy apartment to relax in after a hard day’s spending. And an apartment big enough to fit all the bags in! Enjoy!
