“"Wonderful Shops to Explore"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

This was a fun "discovery" I found while exploring Carmel. A charming group of unique little shops selling treasures from around the world. My personal favorite is NAZAR TURKISH IMPORTS. They offer a wide variety of specialty gift items imported from Turkey. Beautiful jewelry. scarves, etc.. as well as colorful mosaic glass lamps and home décor. Endless fun, artistic items to be found !

“Hidden delight - crafts shops and food”

A hidden mall off Ocean Avenue with crafts and other shops - not your normal tourist shops - with a great open restaurant, Carmel Belle.

“Best place to buy gifts in Carmel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2009

The Peppercorn? It hasn't even existed for years. The Doud Arcade is my favorite place to shop for unique gifts for friends and family. The Carmel Hat Company has a huge assortment of wonderful hats, The Sock Shop has a zillion unique socks and candles, Robin's Jewelry sells all original, beautiful handmade jewelry by Robin, La Belle Carmel and Aw Shucks have great food. I don't remember all the other shop names, but I can always find something original there and enjoy the experience as well. It is designed like a little village unto itself, welcoming and pleasant. I often go to La Belle Carmel for chai or lunch, then wander through the shops to see what's new.
