The Best Boutiques and Market in Santanyi, Mallorca
Much to my surprise, the shopping in Mallorca was really good. Santanyi is a particularly nice place to shop with boutiques dotted around pretty cobbled streets. Every Wednesday and Saturday there is a market which has some gorgeous leather bags (it’s where mine is from below) and a generally happy buzz in the air – it’s a really nice thing to do if you get the chance.
Impossible not to be photobombed at a market
Loved the Mallorcan facades in burnt sienna and bottle green
This little shop called Mimar was a mix of boho fashion and vintage inspired homewares. It had a cute little courtyard and fish pond in the back which amused T-Rex, particularly when the owner gave him some food to feed them with.
T-Rex needs to read the sign behind him
This Kaftan was from a shop called Molecule which sold a million beautiful summer dresses. I came away with three but could easily have bought more. The lady in the shop was so nice and played endlessly with T-Rex while I had a trying on frenzy.
Where else does a mum wear her new dresses? I wanted to wear this dress so much and the only place to wear it immediately was the garden where I ended up filling T-Rex’s paddling pool with this mega heavy pot.
The shop behind me – Cassai – is in the centre of Ses Salines and stocks unique pieces from European designers including French brands Mesdemoiselles and Manoush and also Sluiz Ibiza to name a few. All other shops featured, were in Santanyi. If you are looking for somewhere to stay S’Hotelet is a boutique hotel in the centre and has a family house that you can rent. Also, just a random tip, if you have overdone on Spanish food, Santanyi has a delicious Sushi restaurant called Llum De Sal Sushi (no website weirdly) serving fresh sashimi and unusual tempura rolls. It is just around the corner from S’Hotelet.
