Leading the way in novelties

HAVE YOU ever been frustrated because you couldn’t find the appropriate greetings card for the right occasion? Well, at last your search is over! Buyology, a new shop recently opened in Areias de S. João, Albufeira, has a huge range of cards, from traditional and humorous to musical and funky – whatever you’re looking for, you can find it there.

And that’s not all … Buyology leads the way in novelties, with gifts, gadgets and gizmos for all tastes and occasions. From lava lamps to croquet sets, teddies to puzzles, this innovative shop really has something for everyone.

The trip to this shop in Albufeira is well worth it, especially if you’re looking for something different. Buyology’s products are unique and stepping over the threshold is like walking into an Aladdin’s Cave.

Shop owner Paul Marsh has been a resident in Portugal for over 20 years. During the last few years, he has built up a successful wholesale business, supplying gift products to the many souvenir shops spread across the Algarve. He had been thinking about opening a shop for himself for sometime. So, when a friend told him that a shop with a warehouse, in a great location, was up for grabs, Paul managed to get in first and the rest, as they say, is history. In fact, if it hadn’t been for the hours spent completing a 9,000-piece jigsaw (on show in the shop) and playing golf, Paul may have found something earlier!

The shop is located between the two banks by the taxi rank near ‘The Strip’ traffic lights, and is open from 10am to 10pm (closed on Sundays). For more information, call 917 516 301.
