I have been looking for upmarket Peruvian souvenirs in Lima and it has proven difficult. But at last I found 2 nice shops and both in Barranco. This was a more traditional shop. Just lovely and so many interesting things to look at.

My mom and I went to this shop first. It was perfect. It is more pricy but the quality of the work is the best. There are a lot of unique items I had not seen before. It's a unique wonderful shop, the owner is amazing and lives there. She is filled with information about all of the items. The... More

Such a relief to visit this one-of-a-kind shop. The inventory is authentic and reasonably priced, but it's the owner that really makes this an experience you will never forget. Along with an armful of super cool items we had a handwritten note that described the origin of everything we purchased. If you want heirlooms that you will always treasure make... More

Visited the shop last week, and had an extremely pleasant chat with the owner. Mari stocks a wide range of Peruvian art and treasures, ranging in price from a dollar up. I wanted one special keepsake to remind me of my trip to Lima, and I found it here. The shop is located on a very pleasant street in the... More

We enjoyed talking to the British owner who is so very charming and is fluent in Spanish as well. It was interesting to hear about the sources of her collection and how they were made. Her store is also in her home which makes the shop even more special. There are items for a few dollars and then some exquisite... More

Nothing acrylic or mass produced here - LAS PALLAS offers a wonderful collection of Peruvian crafts - from textiles and ceramics to rugs and small trinkets - all wonderfully curated by the charming British shop owner Mari. SOOOOOO much better than the "craft markets" where everything feels mass produced and made for the tourist market. Everything here is one of... More

I've been to lots of markets, mercados, ferias, etc. Artesanias Las Pallas is a must visit if you are looking for a few souvenirs to take home. All kinds of variety from 1USD to $2,500 USD. You won't be disappointed.

Might be a tad bit more expensive then some of the others but it's a good bet when you are looking for something just a little different. Plus it's in Barranco a really nice area of Lima peppered with great restaurants and art galleries
