ImageI get this question a lot: "where can I buy flamenco dresses or shoes?" Unless you live in Spain, you can't exactly go to your local mall and buy a pair of flamenco shoes or a bata de cola dress. Thanks to globalization, we're able to make use of the internet and purchase flamenco items directly from stores or manufacturers in Spain or on eBay. However, buying dance gear "sight unseen" can be a daunting task. For starters, buying new flamenco articles can be VERY expensive if you take into account the Euro conversion rate and shipping fees from overseas. Secondly, there is a lot of inconsitency in sizes among makers, therefore, potential for making a mistake when ordering is also high. Then, for extra fun, remember to trace your feet on a piece of paper to ensure you will get the right shoe size, pay customs fees, etc., the list goes on. Yet still, we brave the internet and spend hours searching and comparing products, click "place order" and wait for several weeks for our package to arrive.

Often times, no matter how careful or meticulous we are in our research, we get our flamenco treasures only to discover that the shoes don't fit, the dress is a wrong color or just doesn't look good on YOU. Even if you're able to return your purchases for an exchange or money back, return costs and waiting times are often high enough to make you reconsider. So, after expending all that energy and money, do you hang your dress in your "flamenco closet" and hope to make smarter choices next time? Do you try to find flamenco friends that might want to buy your misfit items? Or, do you list your items on eBay, paying fees for limited listings without any guarantee of a sale? We all know how challenging selling on eBay can be - after all, you're competing with thousands of items that, for seemingly random reasons, have words "flamenco" in their description, frustrating potential serious buyers by having them wade through pages and pages of unrelated ads. If only there was an easier, more direct process of connecting our no-longer-wanted flamenco goodies with their new jubilant owners...

Well, now there is! Introducing Flamenco Mercado - the place where you can buy, sell, or exchange new and used flamenco items for FREE. Yep, you heard that right. No listing fees of any kind, no percentages to pay, nada, zip, zero. The only thing you are required to do is to be a member of FlamencoTalk site (registration is also free and only takes a couple of minutes). Imagine having your ads viewed by serious flamenco enthusiasts from 129 different countries, looking to buy things you're wanting to sell. No more wishing and hoping that, after spending time and money on your listing, in a week or so you can find a fair buyer on eBay. At Flamenco Mercado You can create as many listings as you'd like and they will remain active for 30 days. If you haven't sold your item(s) by then, you can re-create the listing(s) if you want. We still can't guarantee you'll sell your stuff, but, hey, you're not paying for it either, so, why not give it a try? The only caveat - the things you advertise must be related to performing the art of flamenco, i.e. dance apparel, musical instruments, dance accessories, etc. If you have questions or not sure if something may be listed, we're happy to help you at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

So, what are you waiting for? Dust off those forgotten and unwanted flamenco goodies in the back of your closet and see if you can't find them a better home!
