Who said souvenirs couldn’t be edible? For those of you who wish to take flavors of Greece home, En Karpo may just be the right place. You can find virtually anything there, from nuts, dried fruits, superfoods, coffee, artisan chocolate and typical Greek snacks. Be seduced by the inviting smell and delicious flavors inside. But we need to warn you. Since there is always some items on sale, you might find yourself in need of an extra suitcase once you’ve set foot inside.

If you avoid souvenir stores like the plague, but prefer unique items locally made, make sure to pop by Bord de l’eau Design Factory on Egnatia street. This fun and vibrant design studio has a collection of handmade jewelry of unique character. Inspired by the contrast between industrial and natural shapes, the studio includes an interesting collection of evil eye lucky charms in the true Greek spirit. Whether looking for a souvenir to give or to keep for yourself or even a spot to enjoy some drinks (there is a “drinkroom”on the premises), Bord de l’Eau is a must-visit.
