Lovely little studio and shop in Maria's great-grandparents' house filled with beautifully made, unique designs - a world apart from the mass-produced souvenirs in the tourist gift shops.
As most tourist locations tend to have the same items for sale in every shop you visit, it was so nice to find this store which has gorgeous handmade items and you can see the love and hard work that goes into them.

A wonderful treasure trove in Topolia on the road to Elafonisi is a must it's a large work shop crammed with olive wood carvings from small pendants to massive statues with prices to match.

It is a great feeling to know that the herbs are handpicked in Crete and oils home made by Marianna, even the small lovely shopping bags are hand decorated with love and flowers by her.

Our cruise ship tour group was given "free time" for shopping in Crete in an outdoor mall area, and finding Eli's Ceramic shop was the highlight of our shopping venture.
It s so unique and original art..I have seen many of this type shops but in this one there are only hand made products with lots of fantasy and talent.

I was particularly interested in the wide range of necklaces and rings in the shop, which were all unique, stylish and beautiful- I picked up several presents at a very reasonable price.
I stopped in on Yiannis shop whilst on holiday and I was so pleased I did - had a great time picking a beautiful necklace and hearing about the roots of where it came from.
