Molivos is dominated by tacky souvenir shops. To find more authentic local wares, you'll have to explore neighboring towns. Mandamados, known as a center for pottery, has numerous ceramics studios. Eleni Lioliou (tel. 22530/61-170), on the road to the monastery, sells brightly painted bowls, plates, and mugs. Anna Fonti (tel. 22530/61-433), on a pedestrian street in the village, produces plates with intricate designs, in brilliant turquoise and blue. Also in Mandamados is the diminutive studio of icon painter Dimitris Hatzanagnostou (tel. 22530/61-318), who produces large-scale icons for churches and portable icons for purchase.
