Hello everyone, here is the first post dedicated to the “shopping in Como”. Il mercatino della Moda is a small shop situated in “VIA VITANI 22”. It is a second hand store.
Shopping lovers are different between them, there are those who prefer to make shopping online, those who go around boutiques and those who look for good opportunities to save money or to find vintage pieces (limited editions): their targets are OUTLETS and SECOND HAND STOREs.
The famous second hand stores and Vintage are those situated in the area of Brera, Via Garibaldi and Navigli in Milano (I will write a post about them). Usually people do not enter this kind of shops because they avoid “used” things, but Il Mercatino della Moda in Como offers you “new” and “original” (luxury) clothing too with small prices (up to 50%- 70%). Accepting only selected brands.
I choose pieces to show you some examples. Indeed, you can sell your own brand-names”clothes/accessories” if you garantee the originality, for example when you receive a gift that you don’t like or you buy a wrong size. For the “vintage” lovers you can find limited edition pieces. Many ideas for gifts. It is not an outlet, you can find clothes of the current season and trend (see the example of the Piazza Sempione skirt, plissée is one of the season trend NOW). If you are in Como go and have a look. It is really worth it!
