shopping in Tallinn, Tartu, Pärnu

I´m planning Visting Estonia, Tallinn, Tartu and Pärnu next month. I need some handmade wooden and forged iron things for my home. Recommend me nice shops (not shops for tourists but something that locals visit too, not too high prices). Maybe will also visit Hiiumaa i think.

Is this shop worth visiting in Tallinn http://pood.ross.ee/en/ ?

Obviously most of the clientele for handcrafted things are tourists. But since that shop is well located in the Old Town, why not give it a try.

recommend to look for Saaremaa Sepad shops - http://www.sepad.ee/contact#esinduspoed. They also have shop in Old Town and their production samples you can find from their web

There are nice handicraft shops in all of these towns. Prices aren't extremely high but not dirt cheap either. Estonians don't really furnish their homes with carved wood and iron ornaments so you won't find agreeable 'Estonian' prices.

Sometimes it is cheaper to get the needed items from e-shops.

Having just been to Tallinn this past October (and going again in September), you'll find original, handmade items in Old Town - everywhere. Just talk to the store owners and you'll get a good sense of what's made there or they'll give you the information. Most everyone in Tallinn speaks some English, most speak it incredibly well.
