And then there's this kind of shopping

Besides Krakow's new malls, there are small shops, especially along tourist streets like Florianska Street with its pricy boutiques. Maybe you wouldn't want to really buy there, but the windows are a delight. Everything is displayed with artistic care; fashion in Poland is serious, at least for women. Trends come and go. Polish ladies put together the current in look from many inexpensive sources and put their own style together. What's in this May? Scarves (imported from India and inexpensive), belted light weight jackets, ballet flats (scads of shoes are sold by open air vendors), full skirts. Two hours in an outdoor cafe on the Rynek or Market square will give you the full fashion scoop.
