An Inspired Boutique in Marrakesh
Located right across the street from the popular Jardin Majorelle, 33 Rue Majorelle takes the Marrakesh souk experience, adds a gloss of Euro chic, and plops it into an air-conditioned, cement-floored boutique. It’s a bit upscale, but it's a better deal than museum and hotel gift shops—even, potentially, the souks, especially if you’re as timid a bargainer as I am. Studded babouche slippers, silver teapots, raffia ballet flats, colorful scarves, and a bunch of items made from recycled bags are just some of the many gift-worthy goods you’ll find. And if the offerings tend to appeal a bit more to women than men, I’d say that’s just a reflection of the Marrakesh shopping experience in general.
