I'm currently staying in Split and like most, was looking at gifts for others when I return home. I found this little shop on TripAdvisor and decided jewelry would make a thoughtful gift. The owner's wife was the only person there. She speaks a little English, and I speak a little Croatian. It wouldn't have mattered, she was so warm, inviting, and patient as I browsed. She helped me select the earrings she felt most matched my necklace... Notice I said "my'. That's right, I ended up buying myself the beautiful gift of jewelry. The price is based on weight and the prices are amazingly reasonable. I pulled out the cash that I had and gave it to her. Thinking I was short I stepped out to get more from the ATM right by the store. I returned and started counting out the amount I thought I was short and tried to hand it to her (I'll get her name next visit). She responded "no, no". I was confused. She re-counted the money I gave her the first time and said "enough". Don't let anyone tell you that when you travel EVERYONE tries to pull some trickery for your money. Not only is the jewelry beautiful and intricate, but the owner/wife is an honest, sweet person.
I'm returning today (if they're open) to buy the gifts I originally set out for.... Hoping I don't get selfish again 😃
