My exams are almost over and my best friend from Portugal is staying at my house for a week, so I couldn’t resist taking her to one of my favourite shops in Rome – Pifebo.
Pifebo is a vintage store chain unlike no other. I’ve been to vintage stores in Lisbon and London, but this one is still my favourite and probably unbeatable. Since the school year is over and I am about to return home for the holidays, I decided to splurge on a bunch of things I knew I could never find anywhere else.
I paid around 250€ – 300€ for all of these things put together (excluding the green coat, which belongs to my friend).
Pifebo currently has three stores around Rome. In Via dei Serpenti, in Via dei Volsci and the biggest one in Via dei Valeri. While I personally know one of the owners that works in the store at Via dei Serpenti, today was my first time at the Via dei Valeri warehouse. It’s absolutely enormous and filled to the brim with everything from genuine military and band jackets, donations from the Teatro dell’Opera (full-on theatre costumes! I’m guessing that’s where my red cape came from) to vintage big brand names at incredible prices. Not to mention that the staff is extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming, and the constantly playing 50s-60s-70s music makes you dance like a loon while flipping through racks of clothing.
Here are the photos of each item and the prices I bought them at, just to give you a taste and maybe the will to go there.
