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 ones for over $1,000.
All items are hand made and authentic.
Highly recommend!

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 a kind and whether you are looking for an inexpensive trinket or an exquisite authentic art piece - LAS PALLAS is not to be missed.

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 a couple of things there that we did not find anywhere else during our trip. When in Lima, you should visit!
