Pandrossou 79, Athina 105 55, Greece
One of the coolest gift shops in Athens! I found so many great things there. The young lady who worked there was amazing, she spoke English fluently and was very knowledgeable and helpful. I really enjoyed visiting this shop and I highly recommend stopping by for a look. Im sure you'll find something you'll love.
I've been coming to this shop for years. In my opinion they have highly quality wood products than the other shops in the area. Still be sure to look over what you are buying because some of the smaller items like cars might have cracks or broken parts. I highly recommend thier olive wood frames, they are both beautiful and high quality.
Chris is truely a craftsman and understands the difference between a trinket and a piece of art. Ask him questions about the work. He can tell you everything. Feel the different finishes used on the work... it is the difference in quality. Understand that woodworking takes time. This is not just made in some factory! Beautiful pieces. A must visit if you are shoppi ng in athens, unlike any other store! If you are from the USA like me, understand that olive wood is one of the most expensive species for us.
Fabulous place for gifts for friends and you might as well treat YOURSELF! They burned initials into a gorgeous wooden spoon for our Chef friend...FANTASTIC! The quality is very high. Highly recommended. By the way.... I have been coming to Greece every summer for decades and and collect olive wood everything and this is really the very best place I have found. Next year I think I will buy one of their pens.
A great store with a wide selection of hand-made olive wood products. The inventory includes dishes, cutting boards, figurines, utensils, even pens. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I bought more than a few pieces during my two visits there, and will return upon my next journey to Athens. I highly recommend this shop.
