Plaka and gifts
No matter where you are at Athens and Plaka, you can easily find a shop offering products and souvenirs, that could be magnificent gifts. Things to wear, to eat, drink, to use. Greeks generally do not invest a lot in their brands internationally- due to the fact that Greek businesses are quite smaller if they are compared to global competition- but there are some brands that you need to find!
Some Plaka Brandnames
Melissions Sandals at Psirri is one of the top selections someone can make while in Athens, is you want something related to leather. Melissinos name can be found in another shop in Athens, that of Olgianna, at Monastiraki.
Jewellery? Geoart and Alexis are some of the numerous proposals about that. Who knows? after visiting them you may get any custom idea or design! And of course Pigi and his shop near that of George’s!
There are also clothes, even not handmade, but of Greek design, these offered in Plaka, like Ancient Greek Clothing Store at Kydathineon.
