El Changuito

    Formerly occupying an old carpenter's workshop in El Born, El Changuito is an antiques store that relocated to the Barri Gòtic in 2009. The current space on Passatge de la Pau (just a stone's throw from the Basília de la Merced) provides a fittingly rustic backdrop for El Changuito's world of well-aged wonders. Its rooms are filled with vintage furniture, jewelry and home accessories, discovered at markets and fairs all over Europe. Owners Sergi and Aide, a couple from Barcelona and Mexico, view their store more as a manifestation of their passion than as a straight up business. They are remarkably informed about every item, be it a turquoise opaline necklace from the '60s, an art deco stool or a pair of matching chesterfields. Visitors be warned: Rumor has it that Sergi and Aide's attachment to select pieces is so great that they will often only part with them if the potential customer is a “good match.” That ain't crazy. That's just love. El Changuito is currently planning to expand its showroom to include an exhibition space.Show lessRead more
