I was in Xylophagou on the high street and noticed this shop called Eleni Bags, Accessories and More and thought, cool name I gotta find out more … Greeted with a welcoming smile, local lass Eleni Manoli got the idea on a visit to England, one day when she went bag shopping and coincidentally whilst there she was introduced to a wholesaler, and finally in 2013 Eleni couldn’t resist the urge to go back and start off her own biz …
Specialising in Bags
Everything from cool backpacks and hand luggage to hand made bags from Europe, top quality, by top brand names from Greece including Veta, Doca and Elizabeth George, and a little more quality with gorgeous bags from the UK by Guess and the amazing Ted Baker ! … oh and new in … Gorgeous designs by Fragola of Greece !
Keeping with the latest fashions, Eleni has carefully selected accessories including; gorgeous 925 Sterling Silver necklaces, bracelets and rings plus wallets and purses, trinket boxes, and loads more gifts or souvenirs …
One of her specialties, Eleni follows the latest trends in fine timepieces … the very latest models from the number one best selling watches in the world by Daniel Wellington, which have a really cool idea, you can change colourful straps to classic leather straps easily so you can match what your wearing … plus some really cool designs by Oozoo, and elegant and sporty Henry watches, and the ever popular Just Cavali …
New Summer designs will be arriving mid February, including a fantastic selection for children so make sure you pop in to see what’s new … oh and Eleni provides a delivery service all over Cyprus, personally if its local and using a national courier for longer distances …
Worth the Drive
Fluent in both Greek and English, Eleni chose to open in a village where rents are more reasonable and hence she can keep her prices very low, so its definitely worth the 15 minute drive from Larnaca, Ayia Napa or Paralimni … oh and she always has sales in January and February and July and August with occasional clearance sales too … so you’ll usually find a bargain !
