1. Monastiraki Flea Market
The narrow streets around Avissynias Square are filled with small shops selling a huge variety of goods. These range from vintage furniture, vinyl long-play records, secondhand clothes, bizarre earrings and hand-made rugs to sandals, antiques, books and musical instruments. Sunday mornings are especially busy here. Across Monastiraki Square is another row of shops on Pandrossou Street. These are more tourist-oriented and sell a huge variety of souvenirs, artefacts, clothes and jewels. Just a stone's throw away is Athinas Street with its stores selling all manner of inexpensive tools.

2. Grape
One of the best places to buy vintage clothes is the Grape in Kolonaki. The store's ambience - reminiscent of a Parisian boudoir - goes perfectly with the retro gear, most of which is from the 1960s and 1970s. The clothing on sale could be out of a Blake Edwards (of Breakfast at Ttiffany's fame) film, considering its style and excellent quality. Many of these clothes - which are to be found in private wardrobes around Europe - were made by the best fashion houses of the time. Old-fashioned accessories are also available to help you recreate an authentic and convincing retro look.

4. Dimakarakos
It is interesting that many people find old maps fascinating. These laboriously drawn depictions help us understand how people of a bygone era perceived their world, and at the same time they are in themselves works of art of the highest aesthetic standards. Vangelis Dimakarakos's antique book store in the Monastiraki Flea Market is the best place to buy reproductions of old maps. In addition to maps, the store also sells old books (including some very rare editions) as well as a large selection of beautiful engravings.
