I was a bit worried not to be able to find it after reading the reviews but it’s quite easy to find. Google maps sends you one street before, on the next street there is signs to go straight through a food market which is pretty calm for Africa standards. The outside has a big white fence and the inside is full of trees with a courtyard. I met both of the owners, they are lovely. Had a snack and a lemonade and bought some natural beauty products. Their collection of Zambian crafts is wonderful.

Beautifully curated store, lovely helpful staff and a truly wonderful selection of arts and crafts. All your holiday gifting in a one stop shop. They even arranged for all my purchases to be shipped back to the UK to avoid costly excess baggage charges!

This store is located just behind the Longacres food market and has an eclectic selection of gifts and clothing from a variety of artists across Zambia. The owners Rosanne and Talitha are knowledgable about the artists and the products are reasonably priced. There is also a lovely coffee shop within the premises with a selection of beverages and bakes. Worth making a stop here while in Lusaka.

Great place to buy souvenirs and also support local and national hand craft groups. This is a shop-setting so no bargaining of prices. Lovely café where you can get delicious refreshments.

SUCH a worthwhile visit when in Lusaka and looking for clothing, art, crafts, etc.

The items for sale are specially curated from Zambian creators and they ensure that the people who make the items are paid well too. So you can find unique items that are far more stylish than the normal 'made-in-china' carved wooden ornaments for sale all over Africa.

I've bought lovely skincare, clothes, art prints, ceramics etc. I recommend this place to everyone visiting Lusaka.

Really cool little shop / gallery hidden down a track. Loads of great Zambian designed and made crafts, art etc.

Coffee is really great too. Nice place to look around, relax and grab some souvenirs.

(P.S Brownies on offer the other week were amazing!)

Don't even try to find this on your own... it's much too hard to find in a back alley behind a kind of "food stall" area.. so have a local artisan/artist or tour guide take you there.

Home to one of Zambia's great and notable architects, it is also home to the collective store that sells books, art, artisan works, textiles, prints, painting, photography, toys, clothing, linens, cards, decorative items..... basically anything you can think of that would be handmade, a traditional Zambian craft or piece of newer art(istry) from all over the country, that you would want to take away with you.
Talitha opened up the shop early on a weekend day for us, but many others came after. We bought a little of everything but it was early in our trip, so she arranged with DHL to ship it back to the states for us, perfectly packed at a very reasonable price. It even beat us home.
Some of the items support women who have been freed from human trafficking and abusive situations making exquisite textile and leather bags; local villagers who make toys from old spare flip flop parts; women who make knitted toys; woven baskets of every sort; clothes fashioned from handmade fabrics by local women; world-class photography and pieces of art; jewelry.... the list goes on and on.. I thing we spent almost 3 hours there and were happy as could be.
