Faux bijou and costume jewellery in Kolonaki


Skoufa Street in Kolonaki is the old playground of the intelligentsia of Athens, where artists and writers would meet at the infamous Filion Café. Close by you’ll find Eccentrics, which has also been part of the street’s history for the last 30 years, established by Stella Pournatzi. Her charismatic dog “Throubi” assists with charming the customers. Faux bijou and costume jewellery has been the reemerging fashion trend of recent years and Eccentrics offers everything from the quirky, vintage inspired to minimalist designs at very reasonable prices.
