Great selection of crafts. Pricey but excellent quality. Much better than the other ticky tacky souvenir shops in the area.

High end shop but the workmanship is phenomenal. There is also an exhibit area that had examples of river cane baskets, wood carvings and weavings. The exhibit included information about the artisans who had made the items on display.
