Shiva: "'Ethnic' clothing" Krakow Shopping Tip by leics

Krakow Shopping: 180 reviews and 248 photos

by leics

There are Shiva shops in several locations in the Old Town.

I liked them the first time I visited in 2006...and in 2010...and in 2013. I'm pleased they've managed to keep going.

They are excellent for scarves, tops, skirts, dresses, trousers, bags, jewellery, some ornaments. It is mostly 'Indian' clothing although I noticed several items with UK labels such as Next and Yessica. Prices are at least half what one would pay in the UK for similar items and even less when they have a sale, as they have done on my last two visits.

I always stock up on scarves (not the woolly kind but the silky, floaty or cotton kind) because they are my passion. :-)

It's well worth popping in when you pass a branch....and you almost certainly will. They do seem t move around a little (presumably as leases end). In 2013 I spotted one on Ulica Slawkowska (runs parallel with Ulica Florianska) and one on Ulica Krakowkska (on the way to Kazimierz).

What to buy: Scarves!

What to pay: Anything from 8 zloty upwards depending on type of scarf and whether there's a sale on or not.
