On November 16, we headed out on foot to the acropolis, following the signs, only to discover that we had climbed to the back/side and not the entrance. Back down to the entrance and then back up.

Of course, the way to and from the Acropolis is filled with tourist souvenir shops. This one was selling ouzo in addition to souvenirs, and also advertised deserts. I'm pretty sure they meant desserts, not deserts.
I did find a nice shop that sold "Greek Art Lace." I purchased some olive oil soap (which I gave as Christmas presents), small decoratively stitched cloth bags, a kitchen set of towels and hot pads, and a tote bag.
