The mostly self-made, judged goods are custom-designed. Hand-made textiles, tablecloths, dolls dressed in traditional costume, adult and children’s blouses, dresses, beaded bags, wallets, necklaces, hand painted eggs, and many other beautiful things can be found and purchased in our shop (Váci street 32). These selected objects are the favourite designs of the past decades.
The old Váci Street (1-32), the oldest pedestrian precinct of our capital, is the first shopping precinct that travel guides or the hotel staff would recommend. It is very popular among tourists. In the plenitude of the street’s souvenir shops the shop at number 32 stands out as a pearl. According to the customers’ opinion the architecture and quality, the wide range of hand-made goods make the shop incomparable to any of the surrounding shops. YOU HAVE TO SEE IT!
