Thespina Gift/Souvenir Shop in the Old Village

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.

The Women’s Co-op – Food Related Gifts and Baked Goods

¬†When you visit Alonnisos I highly recommend that you stop by the “Women’s Co-op” store(s) as they offer a great selection of locally produced Greek foods and baked goods as well. We always purchase oregano from the Women’s Co-op!

The stores also sell varieties of jellies/jams, locally-baked cookies and sweets, and some liqeurs and wines as well. The main store (pictured to your left) is located directly across the street from “The Doors” grocery market and just above Soula’s Fruit and Vegetable Shop. A smaller store is situated near the harbor just up and across the street from the Evaggelia Anagnostou Market.
