Many little shops in an interesting setting. We liked Nazar Turkish Imports in particular. Scarves, jewelry, purses, brass items were colorful and reasonably priced.

A hidden mall off Ocean Avenue with crafts and other shops - not your normal tourist shops - with a great open restaurant, Carmel Belle.
