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 sure you visit Artesanias Las Pallas.

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 very walkable Barranco district.

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.
