    Majorica Pearls: Shopping

    Outside one of the largest souvenir  shops

    Majorca has many large tourist shops which all usually sell the same things. The best places for shopping are in Inca if you want to buy leather products. There are many leather outlets here and cheaper than the main tourist shops. Majorca pearls are very popular too and it is cheaper to buy at the pearl factories. Another product is the ceramics which can also be bought from the factories.

    What to buy: Leather, Pearls, Ceramics and pottery. Also another popular thing is products made with Olive wood.

    Munper (leather) / Orqidea (pearls): Factory shops galore - some pearls of wisdom

    No divers in this pearl palace - Orquidea pearls

    Factory shops have become one of the main moneyspinners for the Majorcan economy, which is a bit odd as I would have thought there was not a big market for people who want to buy factories.

    Seriously though, my resident shopping expert (wife) claimed that the pearls were excellent value at Orquidea, but the next door leather outlet - Munper offered an excellent range but few bargains.

    You will find these 'factory outlet' shops all over the Island, and although they mainly cater for the captive coach market, they represent a reasonable way to shop for gifts if you can avoid the coachloads of sheep buying up whatever they get their grubby little mits on.

    What to pay: Peral Earing and chains start from just a few Euro
