    Villa Maroc: Moroccan Design Center

    by tzuki Written Nov 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Villa Maroc is a place to get lost for a couple of hours and be delighted with the moroccan style in many ways... There are lots of things in this bazaar and showrrom to fall in love with.

    I found it just by chance of walking around the area of Shekhunat Ha-Rakkevet, as started to rain and looking for a place to get in.

    Deganit and Galit, the ladies at Villa Maroc were so nice to me and they even allow me to photo the place as well as them.

    I did nice shopping of some little gifts for family and friends.

    What to buy: You can buy many things there.
    a huge range of things for decoration: carpets, mirrors, lamps, vases, furniture, tiles to decorate floors and walls... and also you can buy things for yourself as clothes, collars, ecc.

    What to pay: Expect to pay less than average in normal range. However, it depends on what you want to buy.

    Books - at - basel: Books nice books

    by tzuki Written Nov 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One day walking around Basel St, I found a nice bookshop which had one of my desired books in the shop window, this book attired my attention to it and that´s why I get into the shop. Then I reckon there were lots of beautiful books in Hebrew and in English...

    As I was walking by the city, I decided to come back another day. So, on my last day in Israel, before taking my plane I pop by Taler´s bookshop and buy a nice book in Hebrew for my friend and another for me in English of some modern hebrew writers.

    The manager of the shop, Haim Taler, was very nice to me. He recommended me nice books to read and those which I bought. He also allow me to photo him at his shop and added to my travelog, of what I am very happy of.

    What to buy: You can find books of any subject: Architecture, design, novels, essays, travel guides, diccionaries, ..... in Hebrew as in English, I saw mainly.

    I bought one in English of Modern Hebrew Literature -
    "(RE)WRITING LOVE" in postmodern times

    and other in Hebrew - "The Shadow of the Wind" of a Spanish writer Carlos Ruiz Zafón
    (beautiful book)

    What to pay: Depends on how much you want to spend, but it is not expensive on average.

    Sweet Sins: Sins of Neve Tzedek

    by Nathalie_B Written Jun 30, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This tiny shop's name is literally translated as "Sweet Sins". Located in Neve Tzedek this store is not less unique than the neighborhood itself.
    Although located in a basement-like shop it's "sinners" i.e. customers can't ignore all the home made cakes, candies, cookies, and jams. While walking along the Shabazi street, eventually, the smell of fresh pastry and chocolade will bring you there.
    And if you do count calories then you can enjoy some sugarfree cookies.
    The place is very small, so you won't have the opportunity to sit down and have a coffee, but one little table is available. So if you're lucky you can "sin" as much as you want while enjoying the smell and the taste.

    what to buy in Tel Aviv: what to buy in Tel Aviv

    by mindcrime Written Jan 29, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There numerous art galleries in the Old Town of Yaffa district, lovely items not always on the cheap side but worth to take a look.

    Most visitors will be happy in Skuk HaCarmel, the famous market in the south part of Tel Aviv (main entrance from junction of Allenby and Skeinkin streets). It’s a colorful market full of sounds and smells as expected. There were many locals buying vegetables, fruits, fishes, pastries, kitchenware. We bought some dry fruits and nuts but also a few spices a fresh fruit juice. There are also souvenirs, tshirts etc Try to bargain as much as you can, most vendors were polite with big smiles.

    Check also the craft market (every Tuesday and Friday) which takes place at Nahalat Binyamin street next to Carmel market, it houses lots of handmade crafts and jewellery. For a real spice market try Skuk Levinsky. Last but not least the old flea market Shuk Hapishpeshim in Jaffa.

    A typical commercial street with numerous clothe stores was Sheinkin street, we didnt buy anything but we saw lots of local women there. Local designers can be found at northern part of Dizengoff street.
    Check also for Dead Sea products if you don’t plan to go there.

    We also bought fresh bread from a local bakery but the best one was Said Abuelafia, a large bakery we visited later in the evening in Jaffa where we got much more so to have supplies for the picnic the day after.

    by Gili_S Written May 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This store located in the centre on Tel-Aviv in Dizengof st. There are plenty of such stores but I really like this one from all the others, it has lots of varieties of items, they are giving very nice service and advices and the price is competitive as well. And, if you buy few items you can politely ask for discount which will be accepted.

    What to buy: Traditional items, any kind of souvenirs and nice jewellery.

    Nuts and Dried Fruits: Middle Eastern Delights

    by Martin_S. Written Aug 11, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is not a tip for a particular place, but rather a general description of what is a very common practice here in Israel, the eating of "finger foods", such as the nuts and dried fruits shown in the photo. You may often see Israeli's holding a small brown paper bag that they constanly dip into for the nuts (especially sunflower seeds) they have there.

    What to buy: Other popular types of nuts are watermelon seeds, pistachio, almond and walnut. You will also enjoy the dried fruits such as the raisins, apricot and dates along with the more modern dried pineapple, mango and kiwi.

    What to pay: Depending on what you purchase it can be from a few shekels for 100 grams, up to double or triple that price.

    Hetaiem Ktaniem: Hetaiem Ktaniem (Small Sins)

    by Martin_S. Written Dec 18, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a small shop that specalizes in chocolate, chocolate covered delights, cookies and small cakes. We stopped in here one day while exploring the older parts of Tel-Aviv. The name Hetaiem Kataniem literally means Small Sins and it is an apt name, the chocolates were so good that they just had to be sinful, recomended for all.

    by Martin_S. Written Sep 8, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here you can see a more open part of the Yaffo Flea Market, here individuals rent a "space" for the day and spread out the things they want to sell, sort of like the American Garage Sale, without the garage...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the main street you will find many sellers of carpets like in Baghdad Bazzar in ancient times, even Aladdin may find his old carpet here...and as you can see the sellers put them out for display, utilizing everything is sight, ropes between poles, stands, the floor, on cars, on the backs of trucks.....be careful if you stand still too long taking a picture you may find YOURSELF being used as a hanger for a carpet display...
