A summary of our shopping spree on Saturday morning ... just thought I'd mention the shops and addresses here in case anyone is going to Barcelona soon and might be interested.

My favorite store has to be this tiny japanese shop, and who can blame me ? As you can see, I had to bring these three beautiful fabrics and sets of scraps. The fabrics are very expensive (15-23 €/m) but you know how obsessed I am with oriental fabrics and these were irresistible.
♥ Antigua Pasamaneria J. Soler
Plaça del Pi, 2
This antique trim shop is priceless. But I was a good girl and managed to leave with just these cute trims below...
humm... chocolate ... no need to say anything else, right ? Just that if you go there, you must try the raspberry chocolate treat, it's heavenly (see photo below). We haven't sampled the chocolate bars yet, but they look promising: jamaica pepper, ginger and 90% dark chocolate.
Rambla Catalunya, 81
I love this store, ever since I first visited one in London ages ago. Their clean design and simple aesthetics really appeal to me, which is weird because I love color so much. What I couldn't resist this time: some notebooks (for A.), origami paper and several pens.
An amazing paper boutique. I didn't buy any, but I did find the Lisbon moleskine edition there ...
