Wat je gaat doen

The economic crisis of Greece is reaching its end and one of its results was that Greeks opened their houses and sold a number of older items of economic & sentimental value. Through this practice, several one-of-a-kind retro items ended up legally on the market: furniture, ornaments, original works of art, coins, memorabilia, even old rare books. A new appreciation of the retro style brought about a renaissance of specialised antique shops, especially in Plaka, Monastiraki and Psirri, as well as yard sales and private collectors.

You will follow me or my co-host Dina, who also has substantial knowledge and experience, as we visit several carefully selected underground, off-the-beaten-path, antique shops in the heart of Athens. We will discover rare vintage items and bargain for them, talk with the experienced and knowledgeable vendors about how they acquired them, learn the histories behind them and see for ourselves the changing face of the city. Along our visit to these beautiful shops, me or Dina will take photos or videos of you so as to capture the untold History. Among that, we will have two stops, a stop for coffee and another for greek traditional bagel, to discuss our findings & our love for all things vintage! It will be a trip through Athens and time itself!

I always had a fascination with all things retro and the histories behind them. I was born and raised in the heart of Athens. Working as an Escape Room creator & designer for years, I've visited each and every single antiquity shop in the wider area of Athens, spoken to all vendors, became true friends with many of them and carefully researched hundreds of items to create over 40 unique Escape Rooms all over Greece. Being an expert in the field, I have the experience to spot not just great opportunities, but also passionate trusted & legitimate professionals. Over the years I cultivated a network of people with true knowledge & expertise, vendors, researchers & scholars, off-the-beaten-path of the mass flea markets, who can point you to significant opportunities of vintage items and also help you discover each item's unique background!

This Impression goes with the capital letter! The ramble throw Monastiraki’s quarter, numerous stores of flea market (all of them have several generations history), the interplay of personal stories, places and times - we were stuned! Lots of places to take an artistic shot. Also we were surprised by the welcome present of our guide :) need to note that all owners of the shops that we visited were tourist- friendly. :)

Very nice experience for this tour. I can see many vintage shops, and ask stories about them. Giannis is very kindly and friendly. If you are interested in vintage, you must join this tour.
