Quite an experience to get to tour a private house/shop owned by an expat who has brought in beautiful and interesting crafts handmade by Peruvians. I think you can actually ask to have a private tour with the owner who has lived here for years. She is very friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the area and of... More

Wonderful collection of Peruvian handicrafts and art in this shop that is also the owners home, a collectors show piece in its own right. The expat Welsh owner is quite the character and worth engaging in a chat.

This is a private house and store at the same time.The owner has been collecting wonderful, unusual artisanal objects all her life, and the displays and interior are as interesting as the object.Her Peruvian dog is a major accessory

A fine selection of souvenirs as well as local arts and crafts. You can spend a lot or a little and there is something to suit every taste. We purchase handmade painted wood place mats for our new table and they will be admired by all visitors to our home. Of course, that didn't stop my wife from buying a... More

We arrived as it was around the corner from where we were staying, you have to ring a bell to get in as it's the owners home as well as business. There are some amazing things, particularly the wall hangings made by the Peruvian women. Well worth visiting on your trip. The owner is also really passionate and is more... More

High-quality Peruvian "artesanía" is getting harder and harder to find. But Doña Mari continues to find the most interesting work—in ceramics, textiles, and more. She knows the pieces and the producers, their history and significance, and is willing to explain it to visitors. Her home is both a museum and a shop and should be at the top of the... More

This is the best place in Peru to purchase high quality Peruvian craft, from all around the country. The owner is a very knowledgeable lady who handpicks the selection and cares genuinely about the traditional craft of the artisans. The store is at least 30 years old with 50 years of experience from its owner. MUST

I loved meeting Mari, and seeing her beautiful home. But I especially loved seeing her incredible collection of Peruvian folk art - with pieces in many different media, from many different regions and something for every budget. I got everything from small wooden animals as gifts for friends, to a beautiful quilted wall hanging. Her stuff is very fairly priced... More
