Spains' very own version of Oxfam
Vintage fashion is all the rage in Barcelona, but paradoxically it has become so hip that you can actually spend more on vintage items than you would on new clothes! If that’s the kind of economics that gets your knickers in a twist then you’ll be glad to discover Humana, a charity shop where a large selection of quality second hand clothes are sold at reasonable prices (for both men and women).
Rows of shirts, skirts, shoes and accessories can be found in their spacious store on Ronda Universitat (they have several other branches scattered around Barcelona) and there’s even some rare delights like colourful flamenco dresses – a classy souvenir, or possibly fancy dress outfit for the Sitges Carnival! New togs start from 2 or 3 euros and even if you spend a little more you can bask in the good feeling that you’re helping Humana’s many charitable projects in Asia and Africa.
