Mercato di Pugliano information
Straddling Via Pugliano in the heart of Ercolano, Italy's largest pre-loved clothing market peddles everything from stock-standard junk to fabulous offbeat finds (killer cocktail dresses, vinyl-LP handbags and the odd military jacket). One of the best shops is Old Star ; ask politely and you may be shown the rare stock upstairs, often borrowed by international designers for study and inspiration.
Look out for the vintage Moschino and Fendi, ornate 1970s Indian fashion, and top-quality cashmere sweaters. From the Circumvesuviana Ercolano-Scavi station, walk downhill 400m to Prima Traversa Mercato. Turn right into it and you'll stumble onto Via Pugliano 200m later.
