Is this a "shopping post"? Are there interesting handicrafts, artwork, antiques, or other items that people typically buy there?

Greece is a major tourist site, so there are shops all over the place. - Oct 3, 2017
Greeks are amazing artists/artisans. Olive oil, olives, olive wood products, olive oil soaps, beauty products (Korres, Apivita, etc), linen and cotton items, leather (sandals, other shoes, belts, bags, jackets), fur, rugs (koorelloo is lovely), handmade jewelry, all sorts of food items (honey, fruit jams), and the wine is delicious. - Dec 20, 2016

Not much other than touring. The Greeks don't produce much besides anarchists, booze, and olive oil. - Dec 27, 2008
