Enjoyed our brief post-dinner shopping spree here. Run by a British ex-pat couple, the shop offered an interesting variety of beads for purchase as well as jewelry made by the owner. We enjoyed our conversation with the proprietors.

If you love making your own Jewelry, you will love this shop. It is full of beads, so aptly named! They have every colour conceivable. They also have ready made items, scarves etc. Very helpful owner.

Browsed around here when visiting Kardamyli one evening and found perfect small gifts for my Grand-daughters which were just that little bit different than what I'd seen elsewhere - easy to find as on the main through road and nice, friendly service.
