la intrusa showroom in tribunal has incredibly unique blouses, girly dresses, & fabulous handmade jewelry from local artists in madrid. i wanted anything & everything. located right next to the tribunal metro stop, this was my favorite boutique in all madrid. the whole experience was refreshing & highly influential.
each piece is unique & very well made. labels include vanesa lorenzo & masscob. downstairs they sell home goods so beautiful & rustic that you may feel compelled to move to a spanish farmhouse owned by wealthy, wine-making artists…i know i did.
when i walked into do design, i didn’t want to leave. the boutique is so aesthetically pleasing that you may want to move in…
need a pick-me-up while perusing the posh places chueca has to offer? stop by mama framboise, arguably the best pasteleria in all of spain…
the corner is located in a really chill area of the hip & scholarly huertas neighborhood & has equally chill digs.
the only shop worth noting on fuencarral–a touristy shopping street that has given birth to a popular shopping area: el mercado de fuencarral. la calle de fuencarral–located between the happenin’ tribunal neighborhood & the gran via, the busiest street in madrid,–is replete with chain stores (zara, springfield, top shop) & discount shops.
this shop may be the best place in madrid to get that original gift for the person whom you always struggle to find something for–plus you’ll have a lot of fun poking around. located on calle manuela malasana–the main drag of the young, hip, & party-hoppin’ tribunal/malasana neighborhood.
in madrid on a sunday? you better hit up el rastro! madrid’s largest flea market is located in la latina, the bohemian & stylish neighborhood.
