    Melita: Lovely hand=painted china shop in Batsi

    by Malcolm_Ostermeyer Written Jul 10, 2010

    Melita is a little shop, run by a tiny woman called Melita - which means "honey" - so all her dishes, plates, etc, have a little bee painted on them! She sells lovely hand-painted china - patterns of olives, swallows, naieve ships, etc. She also sells some lovely hand-made jewellrey.

    What to buy: Large platters painted with ships, small dishes as gifts (beautifully wrapped!).

    What to pay: All prices

    Batsi Gold: Nice Jewellry shop in Batsi, Andros

    by Malcolm_Ostermeyer Written Jul 10, 2010

    Batsi Gold is a nice little jewellry shop on Batsi seafront. It sells watches, etc, but the nicest thing is the jewellry made by the owner, Eftiki, who is a real craftsman. A couple of years ago my wife bought a lovely necklace and bracelet set - just a twisted silver wire with the occasional pearl threaded onto it - really charming. This year she took him a heart-shaped pebble that she'd picked up on Batsi beach many years ago and asked him to mount it as a pendant. He immediately saw what needed to be done and a few days later produced the finished item - and it's really beautiful! He charged 30 Euro, which we both thought was really good value.

    What to buy: Mainly Eftiki's work - lovely hand-crafted stuff.

    What to pay: As much as you like!
