Some of the shops in Granada that I head to when I want to look at shiny new things and enjoy an afternoon of window shopping. Sometimes retail therapy is the best way to add a little sparkle to a dreary day.

After writing up my favourite places to get Takeaway Food in Granada, I realised that I should update this post.

This is a bit more of everyday life and practical places.

La Bolsa Granada Dress Agency

La Bolsa

When I lived in the UK I would often use Dress Agencies. So I am thrilled that there is now one in Granada on Calle Buensuceso. A dress agency is a business that resells designer clothes and accesories. So the owner of the item and the agency owner split the amount earned.

It is a great way to buy designer goods for less. Often when they have hardly been used.

2nd Hand Style at La Bolsa Granada

It is particularly good for special occasion outfits for weddings or events. As those are the kind of clothes that you wear very little.

This shop in the city centre of Granada has been open for several months now. They take in very good condition or nearly new designer items. Mens, Womens and accesories (handbags, SLG´s etc).

Find them on Instagram at @labolsagranada or pop into the store to browse yourself. The items are constantly being updated as new pieces come in.

La Madriguera Shop in Granada

Loalba Jewellery

This family business has been trading for several generations now. Apart from the traditional nature of the set up, they have some great lines in their city centre store. Since moving to Granada some years ago this jeweller has been my go to for all special occasions.

They have some good housewarming and wedding gifts. High end homewares and christening items. One of my favourite picks is a leopard print garden hose on a matt gold stand. (I just need to villa with a garden now!)

As they have a workshop in house which is a good thing. They can tweak jewellery to fit. Or even recycle pieces that are outdated giving them a new lease of life.

They are also pioneers with new technologies too. Being able to make 3D print models of jewellery before making bespoke items for you. So get creative with your ideas. You dont just have to buy off the peg. They can make bespoke jewellery for you. Even lesser know types of jewellery like cremation rings or with specific stones that they can buy to your order.
