It was a real surprise to find this fantastic old fashioned general store in Potamos Kithira. A family run business started in 1945 and handed down from grandfather to grandaughter. Matthew’s eyes nearly fell out of his head when he saw stacks of floral enamel bowls and plates. ‘Just what I need for my new studio’ he announced. I left with a ball of brown string and tradition white curtains for My Greek Island Home. I must admit  it was difficult to leave this shop and all it’s treasures, it will be the first stop on our next visit, which hopefully will be soon.
