Hidden away in an off-street courtyard, this is a most unusual and unexpected combination of anarchist bookshop and hand-made soap boutique. Let’s begin with the soap, which is made from olive oil and Adriatic herbs by Šibenik-based firm Sapunoteka. It can be bought in big slices priced by weight, or in nicely packaged 100-gram bricks (25kn). There’s a big choice – particularly recommended are Three Colours White (3 boje bijelo; with aniseed), Not Everything is as Grey as You Think (Nije sve tako sivo; fennel and lemon), or the excitingly grainy Little Witch (Mala Vještica; poppy seed, clay and lavender). On sale in the anarchist half of the shop are T-shirts with subversive slogans, vinyl 7-inch singles by anarcho-punk bands, and a variety of rabble-rousing books.
