There are two shops, one at one end of the Roman Bridge and the other next door to O Patio and Aquasul restaurants. Both contain plenty of interesting knick-knacks and are run by an English lady - Jane

if you're after cheap, 100M places you can find - necklaces or cards or tat of any sort; if you're after flair, selection, taste, unassuming - and yes, making a living, you won't find a better shop in the Med. Period. And the bosses' photos brighten any wall. This is grown-up clutter - you don't like it ? go back to Albufeira. You know what? this is heaving - when others are quiet. Tells you something about seriously attractive. Genuinely outstanding.

An Aladdin's cave offering a wide variety of attractive gifts for one's self or for those at home. Ceramics, fabrics, prints all at reasonable prices. Browse! Enjoy!

All sorts of unusual craft gifts. Prices a little on the high side but goods are very individual and gift wrapping excellent so probably worth it!

Great shop in an excellent location - always seemed busy and doing good business. Fabulous products for sale from silk scarves to ceramic sardines! Bought gifts for friend and couldn't resist some little goodies for myself too. Gifts beautifully wrapped and ready to take home. Oh how I wish there was a branch in sunny Settle!
