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

This store is run by an eccentric owner who is a passionate of Peru and its various cultures and artisans and has over 30 years of experience of the artisana of the country. It offers high quality products (you will see the difference when you go to the more standard stores) from all of the areas of Peru. We bought... More

My wife and I recently visited the Barranco and sought out Las Pallas based on prior research on best places to shop in the Lima area. The friendly and knowledgeable owner provided excellent commentary on her many fascinating wares carefully sourced from all over Peru. Quality of items was high and this was just the kind of shop we wanted.... More

By far the best traditional artisan handicraft store I have seen in Lima after many trips to the city. Yes, the prices are higher than the stores with mass produced goods but the craftsmanship is so much better. Something bought here can be cherished for a long time. The owner speaks Spanish and English and can speak in great detail... More

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
