Shopping in Athens

Shopping in Athens

Athens’ stores sell some exquisite antiques and are generally reputed. Statuettes, glassware, ceramics and the like are great buys, but watch out for fakes- there are plenty of them floating around. Also keep in mind that you need the government’s approval to export antiques from the Byzantine and Hellenic ages.

Some lively and colourful flea markets include Ifestou and the Sunday Morning Flea Markets , where you can pick up anything from an interesting old icon to worry beads. Monastiraki and the Old City are, similarly, great for picking up some good bargains. Upmarket boutiques and lifestyle stores crowd Kolonaki , literally a byword for fashion in Athens. For handicrafts, check out the wares at the Centre of Hellenic Tradition or the authentic and reasonably priced Amorgos situated in Plaka. Other good buys in Athens are leather ware, glass, and jewelry. Jewelry, in gold or silver, is especially recommended-prices in Greece are lower than in the rest of Europe and the quality is world class. Bargaining can help you get a good deal sometimes in flea markets and the like, but prices in most shops are clearly marked and non-negotiable.
