Below wooden rafters hung with shiny bridles, you'll find riding boots, stripy wool blankets, and multicolored pompoms (for decorating horse bridles) alongside long, elegant sidesaddle skirts and jackets (trajes de amazona) with tiny matching velvet hats. The wallets and bags are a good bet, with both classic logoed and quirkier designs, such as suede handbags decorated with subtly toned pompoms.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 8:30 pm. July through August, open Saturdays 10 am to 2 pm.

A sunny shrine to the extra-virgin olive oils of Andalucía, this inviting space sells and serves small-producer aceite (including organics and international prize winners), wine, and other regional foodstuffs. Dip into the free oil tasting of the day, and chances are you'll be seduced, suddenly finding it's time for tapas—regardless of the hour (Extraverde shrewdly serves without interruption from late breakfast to late night). Pull up a stool, talk origins and methods, and enjoy simple yet sophisticated plates with the warm, English-speaking owners. Be sure to ship your liquid purchases, to avoid snafus at airport security.—Patricia Reilly
Open daily 11 am to 11:30 pm.

Owner Maria Candau's chic emporium, housed in an airy 1920s building, sells everything from funky antique furniture to cute tins of olive oil from the Candau family estate. Look out for Sonia Rykiel's diffusion line (stripy knits), Barcelonan designer Sita Murt (fine-crochet shawl cardigans), and Danish label Rützou (glamorous drapey satin tops). Bag lovers will adore the super-soft suede pouches with cute bows, or for that Sevillana look, buy a hairband adorned with a massive, brightly colored silk flower. Upstairs you'll find Euro-preppie children's clothes and an exhibition space showing contemporary art.—Fiona Flores Watson

Designer duo José Victor Rodríguez Caro and José Luis Medina del Corral certainly don't make frocks for wallflowers, favoring vibrant colors and the asymmetrical hems so beloved in Spain, although lately this boho-glam-chic style has taken a sophisticated turn with more toned-down shades. Bags and sunglasses complete the glamorous look.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 8:30 pm. In August, open Saturdays 10 am to 2 pm.
