“Tallinn shops offer a variety of souvenirs and gifts typical of the Baltic republics: stamped leather wares, ceramics and jewellery. The shops at 9 Pikk Street and 225 Sõpruse Boulevard and the Shopping Centre at 2 Lomonossovi Street offer a large variety of ceramics (decorative plates and panels, statuettes, flower vases), jewellery, stamped leather-bound albums and folders, stamped leather boxes and caskets and other extremely popular works of Estonian applied art.”
