Shop at the Old Parsonage: "Beautiful Lithuanian folk craft" Suwalki Shopping Tip by evaanna
Suwalki Shopping: 1 reviews and 5 photos
The shop at the Museum of Lithuanian Folk Art is certainly worth visiting. They sell all kinds of local craft - wood carvings, pictures, toys, dolls, tablecloths, hand-painted pottery, jewellery and what not. I simply had to buy something every time we were there and in fact I would have liked to buy everything if I could. Not all things were for sale though, usually the ones that I fancied most.:(
What to buy: We particularly liked Lithuanian pottery so we now have a small collection of it at home. We bought two cups, two jugs (one for a gift) and a czenakówka - a dish like a small vase with a lid for preparing the famous czenak (see my restaurant tip), but we keep teabags in it.
What to pay: The prices are lower than in the shops and quite a few of the things cannot be bought anywhere else in Poland.
Directions: The shop is a little hidden, so you must know of its existence to find it. It is located in the Old Parsonage next to the church. Walk along the cobblestone street past the church, passing the carved shrine on your right and it is on your right.
