Bisutería Otero, a Piece of Madrid that Vanishes


Walking around Calle Mayor you get, nowadays, a sad feeling. Many shops are closing because of the expiry of the old law which allowed them to have a low rent. Most of those venues are traditional and popular businesses. One of them is Bisutería Otero. It was opened in 1905 and will definitely close at the end of March.

From their window, you indubitably want to get inside... it is so colourful, full of different earrings and bracelets all in plastic for mostly gipsy flamenco outfits, art deco style, sixties and even eighties jewelry fashion.  The inside is a trip back to the past with wooden furniture and a large counter. The decoration is very flamenca and if you like the Spanish flavour, this is your kind of place. You can imagine how popular the shop was and how many women have bought there.  Prices now are very affordable, so perfect to visit and to buy. Bye bye Little shop…

Últimamente cuando andas por zonas antiguas de la ciudad como la calle Mayor te da una sensación de nostalgia al ver cerrar muchos de los establecimientos míticos por la expiración de la antigua ley de arrendamientos. Uno de estos ejemplos es la Bisutería Otero que abrió en 1905 para cerrar a finales de este mes de marzo.
 Desde fuera, ya te seduce el escaparate lleno de color y bisutería fantástica. Especialmente todos los pendientes, peinetas para ir de flamenca. Una vez dentro, se para el tiempo y te encuentras con unos mostradores de madera maciza que son verdadera obra de arte. Desde bisutería art-deco hasta los años 60 y 80  podrás comprar y encima respirar aire castizo. Además como cierran, los precios han bajado. Adiós tiendecita…
