Ohrid has many shops to choose from. There are all kinds of clothing and shoe shops as well as jewellery shops. There is one souvenir shop on the main street that I thought was really attractive and colorful. Early one morning I watched as she got her store's display ready. Out came the male mannequin, decked out in colorful costume, then came some wonderful Macedonian crafts such as pottery, hand-made leather shoes in the traditional Macedonian style. I just loved this shop and had fun browsing through the many things she had to sell. There even was canned and jars of typical Macedonian preserves.
Other favourite things to buy are traditional Macedonian musical instruments, woodcarvings, items made from copper and CD's with authentic and traditional Macedonian music. Actually we bought 2 CD's to use as background music for Hans' videos.
One old shop I thought was quite interesting was the old Leather and Shoe Repair Shop (pics # 4 & 5). I never saw the shop open, but just peering through the shop window was like looking back in time. You could see strips and bits of leather, shoes made in the traditional Macedonian style - little souvenir ones and big adult size ones. There were leather belts and leather dog leashes too.
