I love shopping in Born, as it offers a wide variety of little boutiques with unique collections. A danger to my wallet, as I often wander through these streets and linger in the many shops. Although most shops in Barcelona are closed on Sunday, you will find that some of those cute boutiques in Born actually open their doors, which makes the neighbourhood lively and a great destination for your Sunday afternoon!
One of the shops that has their doors open on Sunday is Dr. Bloom! It was impossible to walk by this shop without entering, as the window looked so colourful it caught my attention right away.
Dr. Bloom used to be an internet-only clothing brand with a collection made in Barcelona. Now they’ve opened a shop in their hometown and it is worth a visit. It has a very colourful collection, displayed in a spacious, yet cosy shop. Dr. Bloom definitely brings spring to your wardrobe with its pastels, but also has a nice collection of jewellery, bags and some occasional home decoration accessories. The best part of it; it renews their collection frequently, so each time I walk in there is something new to check out!
The friendly staff is more than welcoming and helpful, but never pushy. Prices vary and to be honest some items may be a bit pricey. However, other items are very affordable and you will for sure go home with something original from Barcelona.
