Loulaki Store – Patitiri

005Loulaki is an eclectic store in Patitiri that sells unique, top quality solutions for home, mind & body, and style. Located directly next to the National Bank of Greece branch in Patitiri, it is owned and operated by Claudia Tobias, a lovely woman who we originally met during our four month stay in Alonnisos during the summer of 2000.

This distinctive store features novel products for use in home interiors, such as antiques and beautiful and unusually crafted pottery. A shop for discerning customers, it also offers exquisite jewelry and textiles. In Claudia’s own words, Loulaki truly is an “Alladin’s Cave.”

Geko Silver & Art store – Old Village

During the summer of 2011, our friend Valantis opened a second “Geko” gift store in the Old Village that is absolutely beautiful. Known and respected as man with great taste, he followed his dream and created a very novel shop that features top quality jewelry, fashion accessories, artwork, and much more.

Located just a few steps up from the main plateia in the Old Village, the Geko Silver & Art store resembles shops that one might expect to find in upscale shopping districts in major cities like Rome, Paris, London, and other European capitals. And, this store doesn’t just have an eclectic selection of premium merchandise, its interior also is exquisitely and very tastefully decorated.

When you visit the Old Village during your next trip to Alonnisos, be sure to stop by the Geko Silver & Art store to experience this truly one-of-a-kind shopping experience on the island. And, please tell Valantis that Andrea and Jeff send him their very best regards.
