Shopping in Athens

Hi there!

Couldnt find much on the web for Greek beauty products and jewellery. Any recommendations where in Athens/Santorini can we pick up quality spa products? Was also looking for stores where we can get first copies of designer Greek jewelleries :)

In short, all the best shopping areas and stores for women in Athens, please :)

Attica department store, just off Syntagma Square would be a good place to start. Then, just opposite that, there's a little pedestrian street that is full of jewellery stores. Voukourestiou is the name of the pedestrian street...

Korres cosmetics are great and there is a duty free store in the airport. For gifts, the Benaki museum has some great choices in their gift shops. I especially like the one at the Pireos Avenue museum. Their are a number of shops on Makrygianni Avenue opposite the New Acropolis Museum that have good choices. Please note that these are not typical souvenirs but nice jewelry, ceramics, woodwork, etc. In the Plaka, the Center for Hellenic Tradition has a large range of handmade Greek crafts. Lalounnis is top quality but very expensive. There are stores that sell mastic based cosmetics called the Mastic Shop that have high quality soaps, shampoos and all mastic products. As in all countries try to buy locally made arts and crafts.

I am searching for a menswear store on Ermou Street, Athens. It's on the opposite side of the street to H&MS, but in close vicinity.

The store has two floors and sells fashionable menswear and accessories. It's a popular store.

Can anyone provide a list of menswear stores on the opposite side to H&MS?

Thanks

Nick
