Shopping In Kefalonia
 

All of the gold is 14 carat and above
and is often sold by weight.
There is also a good selection of
silver jewellery or silverware in attractive designs.
It is sometimes worth stopping in the villages too.
Here you occasionally find a genuine artist selling his or her wares by the side of the road. This is particularly the case with olive wood. Often you will find unique pieces of work this way. There are also various larger leather, wood, ceramic and shops on the main roads around Argostoli and Fiskardo town that are worth a quick stop.
