My name is Arapoglou Dimitrios. I need to share with you the problem that I’m facing. I’m born in year 1964 in Greece in Athens and the last 30 years I live in Paros island in Greece. Before 30 years I opened my first shop in Paros, in which I was selling unique jewelry with Byzantine technique and paintings I ,my daughter and my father was creating. There were also other items inspired from the Greek tradition. Ten years after I closed it because of financial difficulties. But I didn’t give up. I was working as a waiter because I like to live on this island. Then I met my wife Zoe who came to work in Greece as a chambermaid in hotel on the island. Some months after I had a chance to reopen my shop and I did so with the assistance of my ex associates. It was a difficult decision but this is what I love and I believe in. Everybody talks about my shop locals and tourists and it still benchmark for many people.
Also among our customers are famous like the film director Sam Penkinpah, designer Kenzo Takada,Greek fashion designer Lakis Gavalas, Vassilis Lekkas Greek singer ,Haris Aleksiou singer too, Vana Barba a actor etc.
Because of financial crisis in Greece I will soon close if I will not find 5000€ in order to pay my rents and electricity bills as a court of justice decided at 16th of April. This amount may sounds for some of you easy to find but for me at this moment is impossible to reach. Wherever I turned to ask for help no ones responded. You are my last hope to save my dream.
The name of the shop is ‘Ο δρόμος είναι η χαρά ‘ , which means ‘the road is the joy’. The address of the shop is Naousa Paros ,postcode 84400.
