Nice selection of bags, jewelry and stationery. Reasonable prices. No pressure to buy anything. There's also a small cafe next to the shop.

It's a treasure. I love visiting this store. It's a sobering experience and an absolute pleasure to promote their cause. And with the Kenyan warmth and welcoming of the personnel, you don't want to leave.
