The outdoor market held three days a week is extremely popular with bus loads of people coming from France to shop. It has the usual knock-offs of any market but it also has some lovely cashmere sweaters on sale for reasonable prices. For any of you who are fashionistas, sweaters with zips at the neckline are popular this year. There are lots of leather stalls with handbags, wallets and shoes for sale. We managed to leave the market without making any purchases.
There are a lot of high-end and haute couture shops in San Remo. Seamus was looking for a scarf and we spotted an exquisite one in a shop window with shades of blues, greys and pinks. We asked to see it and the assistant carefully spread the beautiful cashmere scarf in front of us but at a staggering €350 we exited rather quickly. I was fortunate in finding some black jeans I had been looking for and as a bonus they shortened them free of charge. All I had to do was return in a few hours. This was a plus as everyone here just rolls up jeans that are too long for them.
