One of my personal favourite little local treasure troves is Kombinat house, second hand clothing shop AND charming little tea room combined.
Based around the concept of conscious, sustainable Slow Shopping, Kombinat House is not only a fabulously stocked second-hand and vintage boutique; it also has a dedicated area for local Romanian fashion designers to sell their clothes and handmade accessories.
Located in Down Town Bucharest, just 5 minutes from Piata Romana metro station, Kombinat’s vintage shop has a constantly changing stock of retro seasonal looks, accessories, shoes, bags and even home ware.
And when you are tired of rummaging through the designer silk scarves, printed dresses and shirts, up on the first floor is the Sufrageria Kombinat Drawing-Room. Kitted out with books, magazines, games and (most importantly for us working travellers) FREE Wi-Fi!
