Corfu offers a big variety of shops. Down the cobbled streets and alleyways you can find everything from the small gift and souvenir shop to the boutique with exclusive Italian designer clothes. There are many interesting shops in between, but the best deal can be made on leather goods, jewellery, gold, silver and fur coats. However, if you are going to buy jewellery it is important that you use a reputable jeweller. The area around Ionian Sea is famous for its ceramic work and there are plenty of opportunities to see that on display in the shop windows around town. Naturally, it is also being sold in most of the souvenir shops around town. Probably the most unusual and the most fascinating is the amount of handwoven carpets, tablecloths, napkins, skirts and blouses of lace and cotton which are available in Corfu town. Heavy white stitched sweaters, which are made on the Aegean Island, are also very popular among tourists. Other typical Greek things to bring home could be the skewers for souvlaki, and also the Greek pastries are very tasty. There are usually bargains to be found if you are willing to negotiate, and the prices tend to fall a little when the tourist season is about to end.
