Walking Ausros Vartu gatve (street) from St. Theresa's church towards the Gates of Dawn I turned right to this lovely courtyard on my picture.

In its corner there was an entrance to
a souvenir store full of wooden sculptures and statues made by local (I hope) artists. Most were Lithuanian in style like thin and tall statues of saints. A few larger statues were displayed outdoors.

What to buy: Lithuania style wooden statues of saints or local people, usually thin and high.

What to pay: Well, there were no fixed prices. Try to bargain.

Address: Ausros Vartu gatve, Vilnius, Lithuania
Directions: From the Town Hall's square walk 2-3 min. southeast Didzioji gatve to triangle shape square with a parking lot, continue walk Ausros Vartu street, pass by St. Theresa's church on your left, the shop in a backyard on the right before the Gates of Dawn.
