1. Re: beads shops in barcelona

I went to Barcelona last September and found some great bead shops. Can't remember the exact names but I think they were located in the Gothic Area. I found out that you have to leave your handbag (think this is purse for USA) in a locker by the shop front which came as a bit of a surprise. The beads and tools etc are laid out for everyone to see and handle and I think this is just a security measure. I'm sure you will have a great time just meandering round you can really spend hours there!

I am not a beader myself but googled out of curiosity and there are many listings with address which seem mostly to be in Gotic.

yes i'd seen these as well but don't remember the exact addresses, not being a 'beader' myself. but the area of gotic is not that big and it's a great area to 'get lost', you'll find many hidden treasures

I'd start looking for them in Boqueria Street (not market :)

I remember some shops of this kind , some whole-sale , along the street - but some time ago.
