Antiques Ahasver

Antique linens and clothing—including folk costumes from 1900–1938—is what this store really specializes in. But they also have jewelry, ceramics and other small items. The owner is delightful and speaks excellent English. Credit cards are accepted, but if you pay in cash, you should be able to negotiate 10% the price.

Merchandise at Artěl, Prague, Czech Republic


Run by U.S. expat Karen Feldman, Art?l is one of Prague’s most beautiful stores for glass, jewelry and more. Feldman launched her line of handmade crystal glassware in the 1990s, and her many inspired collections are a stunning blend of modern design and traditional craftsmanship (the glasses are mouth-blown and decorated by hand in the Czech Republic). Her gem-like store, near the House of the Black Madonna and Czech Cubism Museum, has a dove-grey display wall where the colorful creations are dramatically back-lit. The boutique also features innovative glass jewelry and a small selection of Czech accessories and children’s toys—all designer objects that Karen selects herself. A second branch is located at U Lužíchého semiáré 7 (Prague 1 right by the river and Charles Bridge).

Merchandise at  Dana, Prague, Czech Republic


While this store also sells ceramics, porcelain and chandeliers, I tend to come here mainly for their Christmas ornaments, stopping in throughout the year to check out their inventory, which is always clearly displayed at the counter. I should mention that if you’re looking for natural handmade ornaments, this stop is not for you. What you will find here are wonderfully colorful and glittering ornaments in all shapes and sizes.

Award-winning designer Hana Havelkova creates and sells her chic and wearable women’s wear in this charming boutique.


Despite its prime location near the Prague Castle, this toy store charges extremely fair prices, and happens to have the best selection of Czech tin toys that I’ve seen in Prague, as well as an excellent collection of wooden toys (including a marvelous Noah’s Ark with exquisitely carved animals, some of which verge on being Cubist in design). Also be sure to check out the magnetic marionette sets, including dioramas—an excellent item for a 5 to 7 year old.
