In Krakow, the Cloth Market has loads of it. We stayed at the Dom Turisty hotel and liked it.

One little piece of info that might be useful for amber shoppers. A test for genuine amber is to drop it into a saturated salt water solution. If it floats, it's really amber. Something I learned from my grandmother.

Right in the middle of old town is this old large building with rows of small open shops on the ground floor under the main building. I found beautiful bracelets and earrings for very reasonable cost. You will enjoy Krakow and take at least a day trip to Zakopane (2-hour bus ride from train station) -- has nice shops and beautiful scenery.
