“Great shop if you want something unique and of high quality!”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

I LOVED this shop. It's a beautiful setting. I immediately got drawn in as I was walking by and saw the artist outside in her garden painting. I couldn't resist buying a hand painted apron and a hand made necklace of clay painted balls. Great if you are looking for something of quality and unique!

“What a treasure!”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Walking along the Caldera into Firostefani you can't help but notice a rainbow of vibrant colours looking back at you on the hand painted tea towels and aprons hanging to dry in the sun, with soothing beats playing in the background and Allison painting a gorgeous tablecloth in her outdoor courtyard of her studio. The setting is perfect, the shop absolutely gorgeous with handmade art nothing short of spectacular. The perfect place to buy your souvenirs and gifts, or gorgeous pieces for yourself such as pretty and feminine lingerie wash bags, cushion covers, napkins and table cloths etc..all hand painted with gorgeous blue's and greens, to pinks and purples and all colours in between. Allison and her husband have gorgeous down to earth easy going personalities and and were so willing to help out with any information and recommendations needed, which also resulted in eating at the most amazing places we probably wouldn't have found otherwise. Definitely a must visit on your 'to do' list If you'd like to take home an original piece of hand crafted artwork, which is hard to come across these days especially in such a tourist packed destination. Cannot wait to return on our next trip.

“Original island art!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

I have purchased several pieces of Allison's, Aegean Designs, works of art over the last several years and treasure them. Her work is original and filled with vibrant color.

Do not miss this shop on the pathway above Fira, in the village of Firostefani. You will need to walk up the spectacular caldera pathway from Fira or take the local bus to Firostefani and walk up the short way to her studio.
Thanks Allison, for the beautiful art work. It will make me smile always.

“Unique, handmade, one of a kind gifts”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Whenever I'm traveling I always look for unique, one of a kind gifts and/or keepsakes as opposed to mass produced products. This shop definitely met my requirements. The owner is a talented artist who uses locally made products for her beautiful artistry. She is a pleasure to visit with and she offers a variety of aprons, pillow cases, napkins, and other art pieces. Don't miss this shop!
