The Countryside Store, Souq Wakrah

I have found the cutest boutique in Wakrah! Welcome to every girl’s dream store, the Countryside Store!

This post is one among a series I will be doing on Souq Wakrah which, if you haven’t been, is the Wakrah version of Souq Waqif. But it isn’t as crowded or congested and it has a beautiful view of Wakrah beach.  Beside all the cafes and restaurants along the water, the souq is still up-and-coming and only a few stores have opened as of now. Though I did find a few great stores.

At the Countryside Store, its all florals and frills, laces and ribbons, small and cute. I ‘aww-ed’ the whole time I was there.

They have cute little paper houses which are actually gift boxes. Perfect to pack gifts, give-aways and party favors. Each costs 30 Riyals. I also found little printed cushions with quotes on it and adorable rag dolls.

They have gift sets which are especially perfect for Eid or Ramadan or just a very thoughtful and creative gift.

This isn’t a very cost effective store. But I suppose there is a price to pay for things you don’t often find easily in the city. For those like me, who like to collect one of a kind nick knacks, its worth the price. But even if you don’t want to pick up anything, making the trip to the store and having a look around itself is worth it!
