Bom Dia,

I am wondering if anyone is aware of any vintage hifi shops in Portugal? I like to dabble around with old gear and find it fun wandering around old shops. Thanks

Michael

In normal times (remember those!?) we have a monthly second hand market in Alcobaça and there is usually a stall with old record players, radios etc. There are also usually lots of old vinyl records available. I think most reasonable sized towns have a similar market.

There is also a large second hand shop nearby in Alfeizerão that is mainly furniture, but they have a bit of everything and is excellent for a rummage. Also one in Vestiaria...

@PamAlcobaca Thanks, When we get back to whatever passes for normal I'll start cruising the second hand markets.

Hello!

Before covid, we had a very traditional market, where everybody takes his things to sell second hand.
It is called «Feira da Bagageira», also available at Cascais Market. 
It means people just open their car doors and sell the things they bring.

You can follow information online:
facebook.com/feiradabagageira

They also have an online event for the same but i dont know how it works 🙂

Hope it helps!

Ana

@AnaVieira  Yes, we have them in the states in some places as well. There, they are sometimes called swap meet. Thank you for the FB link.

Hi there

If you poke around a little, particularly in less "modern" towns of medium to large size, you'll come across independent and unaffiliated repair places, and they often have old radios, TVs, etc which people have never collected, or no longer wanted, for sale.  There's no easy way to recommend specifics here, but if you're wandering through older streets with little independent shops, keep your eyes peeled!
