  5. $11 Hairpin An elegant alternative to the ornate peineta hair combs sold in area souvenir shops, the delicate sterling hairpins from Seville silversmith Antonio Bustamante work just as well to secure a flamenco-inspired updo. Calle Arfe at Calle Dos de Mayo, Seville, 011-34/95-456-0013.

  6. $12 Tile The decorative ceramic tilework seen in the fortresses, villas, and courtyards of Seville, Andalusia's capital, is the city's signature craft. This two-inch-square piece came from a demolished 19th-century building and bears the symbol of Spain's Castile region. Populart, Pasaje de Vila 4, Seville, 011-34/95-422-9444.
