“Great choice of things to buy - all originals”
We are a family living in the town of Chania in the island of Crete and our life's work is pottery. Our workshop is located in the center of the old harbour of Chania in a graphic venetian building which is 800 years old.

We entered the store and looked around, but nobody asked us to help. So we made our choice alone and tried to pay. The staff - two men - was extremely bored and rude to us. We left the store shocked and without buying anything.More
