Best art shop in sofia!

We thoroughly enjoyed the uniqueness and originality of some of the items for sale. Most of the handbags are beautiful and just very different from what's available in a more typical tourist trap store. I purchased a fun wallet made of old comics covered in plastic! If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind piece of affordable art you can use every... More

Elizabeth's Arts and Craft Shop in the center of Sofia, is, in my opinion one of the best I have visited, her crafts are really unique and her skill to detail is second to none. Elizabeth speaks good English and gives you a very warm welcome on arrival at her shop. Her shop is well worth a visit and browsing... More

When I visited the shop I was impressed by the fairy world that the owner has created with her own hands. Thanks to Betty, this charming woman, with a magic wand I could go back to my childhood. The place is a small oasis in the dynamics of the city, where everything is made not only by hands, but from... More

They have plenty of hand made items. Most of them skillfully crafted with very interesting techniques used. Recommended to visit if you are around the NDK area in Sofia downtown.

A nice small shop in downtown Sofia (Paris Street) to pick up souvenirs from Bulgaria, very helpful attendants. The range of handicrafts is very large, from soaps to beautiful rugs.
