Located in the Old Village of Alonnisos right next to Fantasia House rental rooms, is a gift/souvenir shop called “Thespina” that is operated by a very friendly and welcoming local woman (the store is named after her). I have known Thespina for many years now and find her to be just a wonderful person. During the summer of 2010 Thespina opened an additional gift store (pictured to your right) directly across her original store. That store features a broad selection of high quality jewelry and accessories, while the original location offers more traditional souvenirs.
If you’re staying in the Old Village or just visiting, and looking for a good selection of gifts and souvenirs to purchase, I recommend visiting her stores. When you do, please tell her hello and “na eisai kala” from Jeff and Andrea in the U.S.
