We all love a good bargain, and there is nothing more satisfying than rummaging through a topsy-turvy vintage store to find a hidden treasure or some unique pieces. Ibiza is renowned for its distinctive fashion scene, so naturally there are some amazing shops willing to share their passion with you.
Vintage Icons and Echoes – Santa Eularia
This treasure trove of vintage goods has a flea-market mixed with Aladdins’ cave vibe that will have the magpie in you dying to have a rummage. Expect to find a mixture of quirky pieces such as an authentic ringmasters jacket or 1950’s cocktail dresses at bargain prices, and you might even get lucky and spot a designer brand hidden away that could be yours at a snip of the normal price. British owner Elaine moved her business from Manchester to Ibiza in 2015 and has kept the fun and quirky décor of her shop alive with eclectic ornaments, flying dolls and other pieces that she changes at whim.
Flamingo Vintage Kilo – Ibiza Town
This revolutionary concept by Daniel Martinez originally started in Madrid before opening a second store in Ibiza. As Daniel was able to source quality vintage goods from the USA and ship them over to Spain at reduced retail prices, his shops allows buyers to buy the clothes by the kilo, offering high value for money. Such was his success that in three years they have now opened over 12 Flamingo Vintage Kilo stores, alongside other concepts such as Flamingo Vintage galleries and barbers. If you are looking for an economic way to get American-style vintage clothes then this store is definitely worth a visit.
Lottie Bogotti – San Carlos
Not only is this shop stocked to the brim in vintage clothing, it is also bursting at the seams with vintage jewellery, accessories and bags at reasonable prices for both kings and queens of the scene. The quality of the clothes means that many are practically new and in very good condition, however if you require small alterations there is an option to do that in-house during non-busy periods. As well as vintage, owners Lottie and Hannah also stock interesting items made out of recycled materials and solid gold gemstone jewellery. This is definitely a shop you can get lost in, so I would suggest taking out an hour or so to look through everything in your own time and try to find your very own treasure.
Vicente Ganesha – Ibiza Town
Owned by local fashion legend Vicente Hernandez, this shop bears the fruits of his travels around South America, Europe and Asia collecting pieces along the way. As well as selling the cream of the crop when it comes to 60s, 70s and 80s fashion, Vicente also offers his own unique Indian pieces crafted with gorgeous Indian fabric weaved with intricate designs. Such is the popularity of this store that several celebs have even taken time out to have a peek in, including fellow fashion mogul Kate Moss. What brings people to the store is its reputation for great clothes, but what keeps people coming back is Vicente himself who is known for being a welcoming and down-to-earth Ibiza character.
