Had high expectations based on reviews. Nice but not great or particularly unique handicrafts. Prices are high-not matching quality. Some bags, puppets, very little jewelry and rugs which are not high quality (but “authentic” if that’s what you want).

I tried to visit them twice during my stay. I tried calling them ahead but the numbers don’t seem to work. So I went there twice and they were always closed. Would be great if they could update their information online to allow customers to check whether they are open ahead of time

Bags, puppets, stuffed animals, paintings, jewelry, etc. Not inexpensive, but good quality and good cause. Hard to find! With your back to the mosque walk straight ahead, through what is often a market, down a street that looks like it ends at the entrance to the Heritage Hotel. Keep walking! Dropenling will be on your left.

This store sells handcrafted items. It was the only store I was able to find in Lhasa that sold fabric/textile handcrafts. Most other stores sell identical junky items. The prices were not bargains - I paid $42 US for a charming stuffed fabric monkey that I fell in love with. Many adorable handcrafted stuffed animals. Accepts Visa credit card. As other reviews say, just find the Heritage Hotel (near the mosque) and the store is across the street. There appears to be another branch on Beijing Road but I could never find it open.

In Sep 2017, purchased Carpet and its already deteriorated. I moved the carpet to another room, where no traffic and still the disintegration continued. I now rolled up the carpet and not using it. Waste of Money. I agree with reviews posted by E.L. Material is of very low quality and avoid purchasing carpets. Other items purchased are good and worth except Carpet. DO NOT BUY carpets -Yoga
