A family of artisans own the shop and also have a variety of souvenirs. They are the nicest people, very helpful, and easy to deal with. We enjoyed our time in the shop visiting the family and buying several items, and if ever in the area again we will return for a visit and shopping. The items we purchased are being shipped and they were very prompt in e-mailing us the tracking information. It was a very positive experience and fun talking with the family. I highly recommend.

I was looking for a small boat,replica of a oil lamp, and they had just what I wanted. The owners were very nice, and we had a interesting conversation. Prices were good also.

A great experience visiting the Irida family store - a true business that actually runs in the family. Great copies of the artifacts that can be seen in the Archaeological Museum, just across the street, manually crafted. So, say, you take a look at the world famous Phaistos disk in the museum and you can take your own bronze copy, handmade, in the Irida store. Add to this a pleasant shopping experience, with the host ready to explain everything for you and to toss in one or more little gifts at the end -- briefly one of the loveliest shops I've been in. I highly recommend a visit.
