Balikbayan handicrafts is a not to expensive shop were you can bye some traditional handmade souvenirs. I like the fact that they offer shipping worldwide if you want to buy something big.

If you're looking for local crafts (pearl spoons, furniture, wooden bowls, handbags, etc), this is the place! The staff were incredibly nice and this place has tons of local wares! Way cheaper than airport or mall...including the chocolate covered mangoes (made from Cebu)!!!

We no longer carry the barrelman but you can visit our store near you to check the other products that we carry. We have an outlet in Trinoma Landmark located at the 2nd floor which is more convenient for you to visit.
