Hand crafts and vintage treasures
The notion of Prague shopping used to strike fear into even the stout-hearted but things have improved vastly. That said, many bad habits do remain from the days when all shops were state enterprises and the customer was seen mainly as a bother. These days Czech fashion designers, puppet makers and crystal artists are working hard to make up for lost time. Secondhand book stores, meanwhile, are treasure troves of art prints, maps, old cards and pre-1989 finds.
