Madrid is an incredible city for vintage lovers and collectible treasure hunters. One of those shops in my neighborhood is a specialized deltiology store called Casa Postal. They started out focusing on vintage and valuable postcards 20 years ago, but since then, they have converted their store in an endless array of rare or hard to find vintage pieces from books, toys, decorative tin boxes, or publicity posters. Everything they offer in their stores is authentic and comes from auctions, or private collectors that like to cash in their valuables.
Their store does cause quite an impact as you walk in and most likely you will be overwhelmed by the jumble of items on their shelves, but don’t fret, the owners are very friendly and they do appreciate walk-ins from curious minds.
If you do plan to buy souvenirs while you visit Madrid, stop by and have a look around, there are all types of knickknacks and trinkets that will surely catch your eye. What I really like about this store is that not only will you be buying a unique or one of a kind gift, you’ll most likely be taking back with you a little piece of history that will always make for a cherished memory from your travels.
