LIKE TO HAVE: IPHONE NOTEBOOK at VINCON

September 26, 2010

If you’re visiting Madrid or Barcelona make sure you stop at Vincon. Vincon is a Spanish department store with all things design. You can buy the best gifts, but they also sell expensive furniture. I like their calendars and their funny gadgets like this Iphone Notebook (6 euro). I’ve been in both stores, but this photo is taken in Madrid.
