Chile Shopping

  • Santiago Markets

    Feria Santa Lucia is a coexistence of many gift shops in the same place. It's a perfect place to pick some gifts for home if you are leaving. Among the rest are wooden Islands Mauis in all sizes. There are more than a hundred stalls selling silver jewellery, wooden and leather handicrafts, woven clothes, postcards, incense, toys, candles and a lot...

  • Chilean specialties

    There are stalls selling handicrafts in the plaza, outdoor stalls in the parks, and small shops around the plaza. You will also find many stores with clothing. There was a super market near our hotel. Punta Arenas is a fun place to shop for Chilean handicrafts, hand made chocolate, stone jewelery,sheepskin clothing. If you collect penguin items...

  • Kross - the best Chilean beer

    Kross is a Chilean beer (made in a microbrewery), and in my opinion it's the best! I'm a bit of a beer snob and the other Chilean beers (Escudo, Cristal) are disgusting! Austral, on the other hand, is pretty good as well. 1,200 pesos, more or less.

  • Pisco

    I don't think it's possible to go to Chile and not hear about and try pisco. It's a liqueur made from "limones de pica", a really little lemon creature.HOWEVER, do not believe any Chilean who tells you pisco is Chilean, because it is Peruvian originally. I wouldn't try to argue the point though because it is rather a touchy subject!

  • Alto Las Condes Mall

    We stopped at the Alto Las Condes Mall on our way home from our tour of the new Cultural Center in Santiago. We were shoe shopping for the grandkids for school!Alto Las Condes Mall is another upscale shopping mall that has many of the same stores as the Parque Arauco Mall (which I prefer!). It was a nicely designed, modern mall showcasing these...

  • Mall in Huechuraba, Chile

    The Plaza Norte Mall is located outside of Santiago in Huechuraba. Although it is not as classy as the Parque Arauco or Alto Las Condes Mall, it does contain three large department stores: Falabella, Ripley and Paris plus other small stores and an assortment of restaurants such as Mamut, T'Quila, Duncan Donuts, Cory and other snack shops. Parking...

  • Something Smells Fishy!

    While driving around Santiago, we chanced to pass the Mercado Central. I easily identified one of the food items the market! You could smell it for blocks! The Mercado Central was designed primarily by Fermin Vivaceta in 1872. There are restaurants within the building and several nearby. The wrought iron embellishment over the main...


    Silver jewelry is a great buy in Chile! Pictured are the various pendants I've collected from my trips there. The silver necklace is a recent purchase from Bagus at the Parque Arauco Mall. I can wear any of the pendants with it, but I also have silver chains on which to hang them. I love the jewelry! Click on the picture for a full view! Silver...

  • The Wines of Chile

    While strolling through Chile's business district, we stopped by Lavinoteca in the hopes of finding a Sauvignon Blanc sampled at a few of the restaurants here in Chile.Lavinoteca is a chic wine store located in Chile's business district along Isidora Goyenechea Avenue. After a short search, the clerk found MONTES RESERVA Sauvignon Blanc on the...


    Shopping for antiques in Santiago? YES! My husband and I rented a radio taxi for a morning and went to Feria de Antiquedades Parque de Los Reyes on the Avenida Brazil. At first glance, the large warehouse didn't look like much...but inside! One booth after another offered antiques and collectibles of all types. The booths were numbered, so after...

There is also a place to exchange your money and bank machines.I discovered Privilege on last year's trip to...

  • Santiago's artisan area

    Los Dominicos is an artisan's area featuring many different crafts. We visit each time we come to Chile and highly recommend it for souvenirs and gifts for family or for yourself. It is located outside Santiago and most people would know how to direct you there!Shops offering handmade jewelry (I love the silver pendants, earrings and rings),...

  • Spend some pesos on good wine

    You can get great wines in places besides the duty free shop but this is where I spent most of mine at the last minutes before I got on the plane. Their prices are decent but I think you can probably get slightly better deals in supermarkets Just a tip about wines, there are so many different labels to choose from but my dad who has been drinking...


    You should taste and buy Pisco, especially Pisco sour (with lemon etc.). Very good, and a real taste of Chile (and some would say Peru).

  • Go to Pomaire, the pottery town!

    The whole narrow street is full of shops on both sides all the way down. All kinds of beautiful pottery, and other things too. Lots of nice stuff to choose from. I think the bigger question is how much room do you have to pick up a lot of nice pottery to take home, or money to ship it back!
