We bought some excellent souvenirs at a street market adjacent to St. Isaacs church. There is a good sized market there.

just an update- as of this past fall, the "Dom Knigi" on Nevski (in the former Singer swewing machine building) was closed- people were picketing the closure, but it was closed.

We found that some things in Gostinny Dvor were actually impossible to find anywhere else at a better price (esp. laquered floral trays, souvenir-ish things). The rynok (open air market) behind the Cathedral on the Spilled Blood is good, as well- it is open into the fall, too.
