The art gallery has the best quality of t-shirts and has great designs made by local artists. I definitely will recommend browsing through the shops to find interesting finds such as soaps, balms, artwork, etc. There's a little bakery too!

Shopkeeper was very friendly. Products are very unique. If you're looking for hand-made shirts and souvenir items, this is the place to go.

If you want to visit, the shop opens late in the afternoon. Paintings feature locals - landscape, lighthouse, traditional houses, and people of Batanes; there are also mixed media arts. Bring cash, you might want to buy something and... there no debit/credit card readers anywhere...More
