various: Sari fabric
One of the best souvenirs of a holiday in Goa, in my view, is a length of sari fabric – or several. I never tired of admiring the gorgeous colours and would stop to admire them whenever I got the chance. It was inevitable that I would succumb to temptation! In the end I bought two. One was a beautiful peacock green silk, edged with gold embroidery, which I bought in a tailor’s shop in Baga and had made up into a skirt and sleeveless top at a very reasonable cost – I think £30 for both, including both the fabric itself and the labour. The other was a copper-coloured length, shot with gold threads, which I brought home as it was and which now drapes our dining room window. I bought this in a lively town in Karnataka, name now sadly forgotten, for a ridiculously cheap £10.

Bombay Jewels & Gems: Gold, gold, gold!
There are tons of good Jewelers all over Goa, but based on a reccommendation from a Goan friend I use this shop. They make their own pieces, and its all 22 carat gold. If you take in your own design, or want an old piece copied they can do it. Ask for Deepak Prasan.
Ipod shop: Music
If you find yourself longing to listen to something different while you're away, in Palolem there is a shop where you can go and download music onto your iPod from their computers, for fairly reasonable prices. They also sell new iPods, albeit at much the same price as in Europe, so if yours gets broken, you can replace it here.Related to:

Unknown bookshop: Books
If you're in need of some reading material for while you're lying on the beach, there is a little second hand bookshop next to the internet cafe on the road leading to Hi Tide. He will do swaps, but you won't get much money off your purchase. He does have a decent selection though, although probably fewer 'classics' in the mix here than anywhere else! Prices range from 150-400 INR I think, mostly depending on the size of the book.Related to:

Beer shop: Alcohol
At the top of Palolem main street (the end away from the beach), there's a beer shop on the left if you have your back to the sea, where you can buy beer, western spirits, and also the local feni, which is fermented from coconuts or cashew apples - you can buy either type here, the bottles have different coloured labels. It's cheap and quite pleasant - mix it with some lemonade and you have a nice drink to sip watching the sunset!
