    Hi there,

    If you are in Barcelona, you must visit one of the flea markets there. Barcelona has several open-air flea markets offering a variety of jewelry, books, curious and hand made arts and crafts.

    Three of the most popular flea markets are the:

    - Mercat de las Encants in the Plaza de las Glories Catalanes
    - Mercat de San Antoni
    - Mercat at Plaza Villa de Madrid.

    Two tips I would give you when shopping in traditional markets it's to carry only cash, preferably coins, and to bargain, bargain!

    hope this helps
