Mykonos is the best island in the Northern Cyclades for shopping. Designer stores rub shoulders with chi-chi boutiques selling Greek designers and individual jewelry pieces. On all of the islands, though, search out the quirky shops—coral jewelry and semi-precious stones look great against tanned skin, traditional Greek sandals are perfect for cobbled streets, and religious paraphenalia can be an unconventional keepsake of your travels. Traditional sweets travel well and the wines of Tinos can be international class. Embroiderers and weavers continue centuries-old traditions and make intricate and beautiful fabrics to grace interiors back home.
