Hi there, I'm heading to Athens on Monday, and would like to buy a few gifts (some may be for me!)
I'm interesting in supporting local designers and independent stores for crafts, textiles, accessories, jewellery, that kind of thing. Possibly clothes, depending on the cost. Where in Athens should I head to, and are there any recommendations on specific designers / shops?
You could find some locals in Monastiraki, especially on the streets called "Athinas" and "Ifestou". There are lots of hand-crafted items and lots of street merchants that sell their own clothes. Worth having a look. :)
I don't have an answer for you yet but I'll be heading there on Monday as well for TBEX!
