Shopping for local curios and artwork is a popular activity for
visitors to Zimbabwe - towns and tourist hotspots often feature a
number of markets and curio stores and Harare is no exception. Head
for the Avondale markets atop the old Avondale shopping centre on
King George Road to haggle for jewellery and craft bargains. For
general shopping, head for the Doon Estate shopping centre in
Harrow Road, where there''s another Art Market featuring work by a
number of local artists.
For more upmarket mementos, head for the Patrick Mavros gallery
and jewellery store in Haslemere Lane for gorgeous African-inspired
silver jewellery and sculptures, including limited edition
signature pieces. These internationally renowned pieces are also
available at the flagship store in London, although the pieces are
hand made at the workshop in Harare. There''s also the Umwinsivalley
Ceramics gallery and shop in Umwinsedale Road.
