It's a home, a shop and a collection of artifacts that have been passionately curated.
Scottish owner, Marie Solari, came to Peru in 1966 where she began to learn about the native folk art of Peru from her mother in law. She has been collecting items throughout the years and said to us that markets are no longer the same as they used to be. Artisanal works have been diluted by mass produced product or the product has grown to an extravagant price to appeal to the luxury tourists.
When we met Mari by accidentally walking into her living room, she welcomed us and invited us in to look at the pieces she owned claiming that her collection is second best to those found at The National Museum of Lima.
The items she sells range from affordable to a little higher then your regular budget, but they are unique, eclectic and something you would put proudly in your home.
