We thought this was going to be a tourist trap but we were wonderfully surprised by the items we found here and the prices were more than accessible. We were only going to buy a little thing and we ended up buying loads of things!

You can find a wide variety of handicrafts, but prices are pretty high. I would prefer to go to Laksala.

If visiting Lakpahana is not in your plan, please do make it. Such lovely decorate you can get for home. It is better than Barefoot and Paradise. Also cheaper. The collection at Paradise is majorly for cookery,while Lakpahana has everything .

I visited this place twice to pick up some lovely artefacts. The female staff were very helpful and did not put me under pressure to buy anything. Genuine Sri Lankan products and reassured you are buying quality products.

From the look outside, the place looks like an old house, with some characters. Once entered, greeted by the Good Market signage, of which to showcase the place carries the local handicrafts. Good selections, and reasonable prices.
