Valencia offers all kinds of shopping experiences. Whether you’re looking for designer style around upmarket Plaza del Colegio del Patriarca, hip high street finds along Calle Colón, or one-off beatnik treasures in El Carmen, there’s something for every taste. Lovers of one-off bargain fashion will find that charity shops are thin on the ground in Valencia, but the city does have plenty of vintage and second-hand clothing stores, plus the occasional flea market. There are several special treasure troves to explore whether you’re shopping or just browsing.

La Señora Henderson

It’s well worth seeking out La Señora Henderson, a vintage thrift store much-loved by locals. The tiny boutique has beautifully-themed window displays featuring antique furniture and vintage baskets. They have an interesting selection of jewelry, from delicately-beaded necklaces, to flamboyant flamenco hoop earnings, and giant satin flowers. The prices are super, too: winter jumpers start at €6 and the bargain €3 box is always well-stocked. Antique photographs of Valencian grandparents gaze benignly from their frames as you rifle through the vintage luggage, gloves and jewelry. In summer this store is a garden of summery prints and in winter a den of alpine jackets, knits and leather flying caps. In the middle of the store is an elegant wooden changing room made from an antique elevator carriage circa 1900, salvaged from a local town house during renovations. La Señora Henderson has two sister shops in the city and each has a distinctive feel.

Trixie's Vintage Emporium

Shop, Store

If sugar-pastel 1950s’ dresses and accessories are your dream, pop your head into Trixie’s Vintage Emporium and say hello to Lindsay. She left her job as a headteacher in England eight years ago to set up this hidden jewel of a shop. She’s a talented seamstress who sources authentic vintage dresses for performers, prom nights, and weddings, and you can pick up a piece of her style for yourself.

La Vespa Roja

La Vespa Roja

Tucked away on one of our favorite streets in the El Carmen neighborhood you’ll find La Vespa Roja (The Red Vespa), a cool second-hand emporium where the 1970s are still very much alive and kicking. The slide music grooves you back to the days of rainbow glitter and flares, however the stock is pleasingly varied and includes some good military jackets and cute khaki berets alongside the ’70s gear. The prices are mid-range but the quality is good. Best buys are denim overalls, garish shirts, and plastic bead necklaces.

La Vespa Roja, Calle Bolsería, 6, Valencia, Spain, +34 615 97 48 89

Clot Vintage

Clot Vintage

On the upper corner of Plaza Tossal sits Clot Vintage. This is one of the biggest thrift stores in town and offers a comprehensive range of second hand denim, Converse All Stars, clutch bags, and retro dresses. They specialize in cowboy boots, and prices (and quality) tend to be low.

Clot Vintage, Carrer de Quart, 2, Valencia, Spain

Camden Vintage

Camden Vintage

A more glamorous spot is Camden Vintage. Catering almost solely for women, this little hideaway has a distinct Audery Hepburn vibe. You’ll find vintage Loewe leather handbags and strappy sandals. Their racks sparkle with a mix of new and genuine vintage. Look for pretty skirts and short dresses and their in-house Chanel- and YSL-inspired logo T-shirts. Don’t expect a bargain: this is more of a dressing-up box; but you may find a gem for a fancy dress party or girls’ night out.

Camden Vintage, Calle Alta, 24, Valencia, Spain, +34 667 93 14 11

Santo Spirito

Next door, Santo Spirito is the antithesis of Camden Vintage. Giant glass windows frame a spacious warehouse of American retro gear. You’ll flash back to the ’80s and sense the splash of tropical shores from the long racks of Hawaiian shirts. It’s wall-to-wall American sports jackets, heavy frame sunnies and guys’ and girls’ denim at rock-bottom bargain prices.



Continue down the street and you’ll find a tiny thrift store on the corner. SuKarma is small but has a perfect selection of dresses, bags and fabulous sky-high Vivienne Westwood-style heels. The clothes here are second hand rather than vintage, but the prices are a joy.



If you fancy a bargain hunt you might enjoy this spot next door, with its flashing neon SOHO sign straight off the streets of London. The rails are packed with a suitably shabby selection of grungy denim, fur coats, and a great selection of spiked-toe snakeskin boots.

SOHO, Carrer dels Drets, 33, Valencia, Spain, +34 963 91 24 63


Market, Park, Stadium

Second-hand market in Valencia

By far the biggest and best second-hand flea market in town. Every Sunday morning from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., come rain or shine, this immense outdoor market takes over the Mestalla Stadium car park. Regular vendors stock Valencian ceramics, antique hand-painted tiles, glass light fittings, and lace. Plus there are plenty of antique toys, second hand clothes, electronics, and retro Spanish magazines of a decidedly adult nature. The market is policed, but you’ll want to keep a hand on your valuables, and it’s polite to check with vendors before taking photos.

Rastro, Plaza Luis Casanova, Valencia, Spain, +34 962 08 47 36

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
