    Street Sellers: BEWARE OF REPLICAS

    by painterdave Written Jan 31, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You will see on the street many young men selling purses, billfolds, jewelry, watches and other small items that they can pick up and take quickly. I say quickly because when the local police come into the area they grab everything and move away.
    Many of these items for sale are fakes made in Asia. So that fancy purse that is being sold for such a great price, is not really such a deal if you want to original designer purse.
    It won't do any good to ask them if it is real or not, and if you act interested they will try to pull you into a "deal". Best thing is to ignore them.

    What to buy: This Foto below is of the famous, well photographed Fashion Area of Milano. When you see the real thing, up close and personal, it doesn't look so fancy.

    Foxtown: Shopping in Mendrisio

    by sevilsungur Written May 6, 2010

    If Lake Como is in your itinerary (I believe it should be, Como is a must actually) the following outlet in Mendrisio Switzerland will only be an additional 15 minute drive from Como. You will be crossing the border so, make sure you have your passports with you (and a valid visa that allowes multiple entries to Italy). It is called foxtown and they have all the outlets of the "big players".

    What to pay: It all depends on the brand.

    FNAC: Heaven in a department store....

    by chrissy_11 Updated Jan 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A friend suggested not to miss FNAC, which is a department store catering for all tastes in music, dvds and a great internet cafe on the top floor.
    They also have a huge range of computers and electronics, TV and books.
    Needless to say I spent a lot of time in the store and brought home some of my favourite music which is not available in Australia!!
    How to break the bank in a hurry! Wish I'd had more time....

    What to buy: Anything electronic or music, etc.

    What to pay: How deep is your pocket or how big is your wallet??

    Brums: Colourful clothing for children

    by nomadig Written Jun 3, 2007

    Brums is a midsized children clothing store on busy Corso Buenos Aires. The clothes are very colourful and attend to the details. The sizes range from babies to teens (0-16 years) and both girls and boys have a good selection of clothes.

    The service is very friendly and there were enough clerks to handle all customers -- this might be because of low number of customers or higher amount of clerks. The prices are in the midrange, so don't expect finding any bargains here.

    Muji: Simplicity from Japan

    by nomadig Written Jun 3, 2007

    I know that Muji is expanding, but I was a bit surprised to see their shop in Milan -- the design is so strong in the northern Italy and people seem to be so loyal to the local traditions. Nevertheless, the shop was enjoying a good amount of customers already on early Saturday morning.

    Brief introduction to Muji for the non-initiated: Muji is a Japanese design brand that is based on simplicity and no-labels approach. They sell quality stuff, everything from office supplies to clothes, furniture and tableware -- of course, depending on the size of the shop. Nowadays they seem to be found in every big market.

    Muji's competitive advantage is not pricing, but the form follows function design that pleases the eye.

    Du Pareil Au Même: Fully stocked children shop

    by nomadig Written Jun 2, 2007

    There are surprisingly few children stores in Milan, compared to the overall number of clothing stores in the city. Your best bet is to walk on Corso Buenos Aires, as there are several shops for babies and children.

    Du Pareil Au Même is one of the biggest, the selection catering for all aspects of having small children. The prices are quite okay, too, but the service is non-existent. We browsed through the shop for quarter of an hour, but got no service what-so-ever. Unbelievable!

    Peck: Excellent Parmesan Cheese

    by vichatherly Updated May 29, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had read about this shop in the guide books and decided to take a look.

    At first glance the place reminded me of the food hall at Harrods. There is plenty of well displayed food and numerous staff to help out with those purchases. In fact the Italians make the most of their staff in the way that you buy their food. First you choose what you want and the employee gives you a ticket for it. Then you go off to the young lady on the till and pay for it. Then it’s back to the food counter to hand the ticket over and the food is then beautifully wrapped and handed to you. It was a good job there wasn’t any long queues on the day that we visited.

    What to buy: We actually went for the Parmesan cheese of which we bought a huge lump of. It’s the first time I’ve been asked how old I wanted my cheese, 5, 3 or 2 years old. We plumbed for the middle ground of 3 years.

    Then we bought some ravioli, which the shop is famous for, and only realised as we came out of the shop that it had just cost us a round £12. Oh well it was very nice when we got it home to England the day after.

    What to pay: Parmigigiano Regginao at 19.09 Euros! Ravioli Valdostana at 17.28 Euros!!

    Expect it to be an expensive indulgence although window shopping is always free.

    Linea Kappa: AC Milan Club shop

    by vichatherly Updated May 29, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I found one of AC Milans official club shops inside the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Got myself a decent scarf for 20 Euros to hang on the wall at home.

    You can buy cheaper ones from the stalls outside but as I got one of those on my earlier trips I thought I'd get a decent on this time.

    Nannini: Value for your money

    by nomadig Written May 27, 2007

    Nannini is one of the mid-level Italian fashion brands that has been expanding steadily all over the world. We visited their Milan shop on Corso Buenos Aires to spend some time and money for fashion accessories.

    The store is for ladies only, and it focuses on bags and shoes. The store is not the very big, but fortunately there were several items worth purchasing with reasonable prices -- you don't pay for the name, but for the design and the quality of the items.

    The service was very helpful, despite having a smallish English vocabulary. Fortunately, the ladies had enough persistence and willpower to carry us through the buying process using both English, Italy and hands.

    Furla: Luxury bags and accessories

    by nomadig Written May 27, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Furla is an Italian high-end fashion brand that focus on accessories: bags, shoes, belts, watches, sunglasses and so forth. Their Milan store is centrally located among other fashion boutiques, only a few hundred meters from Duomo.

    The store is quite compact, but fortunately packed well with stylish bags and other accessories. The price tags are hefty, but not over the top for quality made leather wear.
