The Vinohrady district is quite close to the center of Prague and very suitable for some serious shopping. The good thing about shopping in this part of Prague is that you will meet few tourists. Most visitors stay in Stare Mesto, the Old Town, which abounds in souvenir shops.
Vinohrady is well-known for its antique shops. Antik Petit is a tiny shop specializing in linen tablecloths and embroidered bedspreads but also garnet-studded pendants, beaded purses and vintage earrings. This little shop is a true treasure trove. But if you have a passion for art books, Antikvariat Vinohradska stocks an impressive selection at very reasonable prices. Praha Thrift Store is an excellent shop to grab a bargain. Proceeds go to people who are less well off.
If you crave cheese, Greek corner stocks feta and Cheesy has most tasty Dutch cheeses. The Farmers' Market at Jiriho z Podebrad Square is your best place for smoked cheese, a Czech speciality. Be sure to try kolachy, pastry with a dollop of fruit, especially prunes are very tasty. Finally, spend some pleasant shopping hours in Atrium Flora Sopping Center.
