I found the best shopping from one extreme to another. The flea markrt el rastro, in old Madrid has good buys on shoes, purses, and an assortment of hand crafted items. I love el Cortes Inglis. It has high quality items. I purchased a beautiful pair of boots and a purse, brown patent leather with gold buttons. I found the leather good to be best buys. You can buy beautiful leather shoes at a variety of store for a fraction of the price at home.
Love that leather!!!!!!!!!!!!
