When I was in Athens for my cousin's wedding, I had the great pleasure of some really good vintage shopping. He had the gall to get married at 4:00 in the afternoon ;), which did not leave me with a lot of shopping time, but I made the most of it!
My sweetie picked up a very random and obscure LP. I got a fabulous little purse. It's white vinyl with this sort of mother-of-pearl look. The strap is removable, so it makes an awesome clutch. (I took it to the wedding. Perfect combo with my black-and-white striped Nicole Miller dress!)
They have GREAT vintage jewelry, and lots of it. I didn't buy any (because I was having consumer guilt), but would you look at those rings!
The main reason I felt too guilty to buy jewelry was because I had already decided that I HAD to have this two-foot tall 1960's red glass vase (I guess that's what you'd call it).
Pictures do not do it justice! At least, my pictures don't.

If you're more interested in vintage clothes (than vintage stuff), you will ADORE Minx, just up the street from Agora. Check out the selection of boots. The Tony Lama's on the right (back row) were only $65! And already broken in. Sadly, not my size. I tried to get my sweetie to try them on, but he wasn't feeling it. (He's funny about things like wearing used shoes.)
He DID pick up a great vintage shirt though. If I'd had time for trying on (curse that afternoon wedding!), I know I would not have walked away empty-handed. Loved the light blue Betty Draper house dress (below), and so much more...
