    The town of Fira has all the basic shops required with a couple of small supermarkets, a bookshop (with some English titles) and the various other necessary bits and bobs but most of the main street is very upscale arts and craft, jewelry and designer clothes shops aimed, I should imagine, at the cruise shoppers who stop off for the day. However there are some interesting ones and here's one that caught my eye:

    From ancient times...

    It is a "paradise" for people who want to have cheap, but even much more expensive souvenirs. Tourist shops can be found everywhere, especially in the capital, Fira, a reason that makes it not as attractive as the other villages...
    Artshops, jewelleries, shops with local products offer you many chances to spend money. Well, in Santorini this is not difficult...

    What to pay: It depends on the season, generally the prices are high. It would be a very good idea if you could avoid being there in the summer, especially in August...

    Objects with colours like these can transfer a little of the beauty of the island back to your home... Colours can make our moments more bright even with a glance and such items keep alive the memories. Or not?
