just went there with a friend who lives in Peru. If he had not taken us there, we would never have known about this little jewel. Located in a private home, with the owner who is British but has lived many years in Lima and has a very profound knowledge of Peruvian folkart....and this filles her house....so many things you...

Since you are going to buy something in Peru, come here when you first arrive to give yourself a short course on the variety and prices of Peruvian folk art. Since I saw this shop after two weeks in Cusco, I expected to see a premium Lima price for Andean folk art. The prices I saw were not out of... More

Since I look so American I received different pricing on items than my wife who is latina did. They saw me coming a raised all... More

As a shopping expert, it’s my opinion that the best shopping in Peru is in Cusco around and near the Plaza de Armas. It's an attractive, leisurely walk around the large square with endless shops (some high end) and plenty of cafes and restaurants in between. In Lima, there are numerous markets with identical, mass-produced merchandise. However, there are a... More

During our recent visit to Lima we visited Mari Solari and her Las Pallas gallery. Mari is a wonderful and generous hostess...a British expat ..she has been in business for more than 30 years and has combed the countryside to accumulate her wealth of treasures of weavings, pottery, frames, baskets, trays, charms and amulets. Hers is a personal love affair... More

Aside from the fact that a trip to Barranca is worth the trip, this little jewel of a shop is worth your time as well. It is located in a house in a lovely neighborhood. So you get both a feel of what living in these charming neighborhoods is like as well as an opportunity to see and buy some... More

We easily walked from Miraflores to Barranco in search of this gem of a place. The front doors were locked - but luckily we saw the bell... ring it! Someone will come! We had a lovely time with the knowledgeable owner and learned about the history and geography of some of the colourful and fascinating folk art in the shop.... More

We had a hard time finding the shop, possibly because we listened to too many local "guides" Once we got there, were found a treasure trove of wonderful crafts from all over Peru. The owner searched out many areas of Peru for hand made articles. She was very accommodating. She even wrote out a nice card with the names of... More

If you are looking for high quality Peruvian crafts, you must check out Las Pallas. Go there before you travel around Peru to see what might be available, then come back before you leave Peru to pick up what you couldn't find. Our 30 minute walk to Barranco from Miraflores was as enjoyable as our destination. What a great neighbourhood... More

I cannot add much new---but this is the place to go if you want to bring something lovely from Peru home with you..I spent a great morning with Mari roaming around her house/shop and learning a great deal about Peruvian folk art. No pressure to buy, but try to resist :-).
