There is a fair amount of shopping available on Skopelos Island, the majority of stores being located in the centre of town and along the waterfront. Traditional ceramics, weaving and jewellery are the favoured souvenir purchases but the local sweets, leather goods, wine, liquor and olive oil are also popular. Armoloi, near the harbour, sells exquisite local jewellery, ceramics, woven goods and silver, while Ploumisti has authentic Greek rugs and blankets for sale. Nick Rodios' gallery has some classic black ceramic pieces to entice art lovers. There are also a number of boutiques in town selling a variety of clothes, shoes and accessories, as well as a few village shops with souvenirs and local produce. Although by no means a shopping mecca Skopelos has everything holidaymakers require and some extra. You will be able to find charming souvenirs and crafts and anything necessary for your holiday; but those looking for designer clothes shopping sprees would perhaps do better on one of the famous resort islands like Mykonos or Santorini.
