We were warmly welcomed into what can only be described as a folk art museum and store on the loveliest street in Barranca. The owner who has amassed a wonderful collection of the finest handmade Peruvian art also shared her extensive knowledge of the people and regions from where each piece was made. We left knowing more about the craft... More

I did my research before my trip to see the various traditional handicrafts Peru is known for as I always pick up art to decorate my home with. I knew I wanted a retablo or two and from Trip Advisor found that this store is known for authentic crafts including a good selection of retablos. The owner takes pride in... More

If you're more on the artsy side, taste wise, this is where you want to buy gifts and souvenirs in Lima. The items in here are authentically Peruvian but are not your average typical mass market souvenirs. Set in the arts district of Lima, Barranco, this store houses a massive collection and is run by two lovely ladies who were... More

I expected to come into this beautiful collection, find nothing I could reasonably afford, and be snubbed for touching things I don't plan to buy. Imagine the exact opposite and that was the experience I had. The first thing the owner said to me was "Please don't feel obligated to buy anything. You're welcome to look for as long as... More

My partner and I went to this store about two weeks ago, while doing some of our last gift shopping in Lima, before flying out the next day. I had heard good things so we went. While there were some lovely items for sale, the shop seemed to be entirely directed at expats with way too much money and no... More

I read about this lovely shop on tripadvisor and was keen to see some genuine textiles and crafts made by Peruvian artisans. The blue house could not be missed. We arrived too early and rang the gate bell. Out rushed Mari and within a minute we were chatting about the history of the textiles and were given an in depth... More

THANKS Trip Advisor for steering us to this absolutely delightful shopping experience. Very wide range of quality/prices to suit every budget and taste. We found gifts for adult children, young grand children plus really nice jewelry and an art boxed diorama for ourselves. The 10% discount for paying in cash was much appreciated.

Before you buy crafts or souvenirs anywhere, you should pay a visit to this unique shop in Barranco. The owner, Mari, a British expat has lived here for more than 30 years. She buys all her merchandise directly from the artisans. You know you are getting quality. She is very knowledgeable and, if the shop is not busy, you can... More

Even if you are a discriminating traveler used to finding interesting sights and shops, your experience at this little shop in a residential setting in Barranco will really stand out. Excellent merchandise knowledgeably explained by a fascinating and engaging owner who has lived on the premises for many years. Don't miss it!
