Posted - 25/11/2005 : 16:46:09 Has anyone been in the little gift shop in the Vila Nova which is opposite the Flamenco Bar and near the restaurants Es Raco and El Suizo?
They sell ceramics, lots of plates and other typically Spanish souvenirs. We've bought lots of plates in there, the ones with the picture of the beach and the Vila Vella on them. They are supposed to be for display - but we actually eat off them! So every time we finish our dinner we see Tossa! We've also got the matching mugs and side plates, and mini tapas plates!
The shop is run by two lovely old ladies, they are so friendly, especially if you speak a bit of Spanish to them, even just 'Hola, buenas dias' when you walk in and 'adios, gracias' when you leave. They took the time once to tell us about something that was going on in the Paseo del Mar that afternoon, a Cim-i-Tomba cooking demonstration. If they hadn't told us we'd never have known, and it was such a good thing to see.
The old ladies also found it very amusing when I told them we eat off the Tossa souvenir plates!
