Concierge.com's insider take:

Forget china bulls and an FC Barça t-shirt: For a truly hip souvenir, check out the Vaho Gallery. Vaho, located in central Barri Gòtic, makes bags, belts, cases, and wallets out of used banderas, the huge PVC advertising banners that you see hanging from public buildings in the city. Only a snippet is used for each item, and for copyright reasons, logos and other iconography has to be discarded. But if you search you will find one with Barcelona-related imagery, generally taken from banners used for advertising publicly funded art and cultural events. Vaho's recycled "trashion" doesn't come cheap (a medium-size bag hovers around the $140 mark), but since the company employs marginalized groups to help manufacture them, in terms of political correctness, it's priceless. There is another shop at 13 Carrer Bonsuccés.

Open daily from 10 am to 8:30 pm.
