Went here on my stay in Kos since the store looked really nice form the outside and I needed a bag for my holiday. The owner was friendly and I decided on a woven tote bag for 30 Euro. However, a thread came loose the first day I was wearing it which caused the bag to disintegrate quite quickly. This was quite unfortunate as I was in the midst of the beach with an unusable bag. 

So the next day I was in Kos, I returned to the shop and told the owner about the broken bag. I was not unfriendly, I didn’t say that I wanted any money back, I just wanted to tell him about the clearly faulty item and see what he could do about it, e.g. repair it or tell me where/how it could be repaired or to maybe exchange it.
But I was only with the answer that this isn’t his responsibility and that he doesn’t know what I did with the bag. No apology what so ever, no nothing. 
I’d like to add that I’m a small shop owner as well. Sometimes it does happen that customers come back with stuff they bought because it broke. If I told them that this wasn’t my problem, I’d go bankrupt because nobody would come back to my store. This doesn’t seem to apply to this store as it’s mostly a tourist area and people won’t come back anyway.
So I can’t really recommend shopping here, because while the range of product seem nice, the customer service is non existent. 
Luckily, this was my only bad experience during my otherwise very nice stay in Kos.

This is a real gem of a find in Kos Town, I actually found it through Instagram so on our latest trip to Kos I was determined to find it. It’s just near the police station. It’s filled with beautiful hand made creations that you will not find anywhere else. The guy that owns it is really lovely, he is also a dog lover and has 2 sweet dogs. Yianis works with ceramics and clay amongst other things and the shop is beautifully decorated . It’s well worth a visit if you are in Kos.

Ideal place to go for souvenirs in one of the street in Platanou Square.
Handmade souvenirs and something different from all the other shops too.
Great gifts to take home

We were so happily surprised to found this little jem while having a stroll in the centre of kos town! The artist (Giannis) makes you feel very welcomed and gives you any info you need. You can find a great variety of things from beautiful handmade souvenirs (pumpkins, sea horses, octopus fridge magnets) to artistic sculptures! Looooved the jellyfish decoration pieces! #mustvisit!!
