  • Went shopping for souvenirs. Loved the ethical sourcing. Great selection. Ended up going back for more after seeing the options at other retailers. Prices were inline with elsewhere or better. Several of the staff spoke English. No issues using a North American credit card. Highly recommend stopping in.
  • Good: The products are well selected and nicely displayed. The staff is friendly and helpful. Bad: Pricey- I found the markup on Cashmere products to be upto 30-40% compared to the State Department Store and Duty free shops at the airport.
  • Definitely the best souvenir shop in UB. The staff is super helpful, you can pay with credit card. I loved that they care about fair trade and that things are produced locally. I highly recommend buying mittens :)
  • I live in UB and have always loved my visits to this shop. Knowing that my purchases are handmade and ethical (the shop is free trade) is a good feeling. They are consistently getting different products in the store so the merchandise never feels old. It's a great place to shop for souvenirs, and the staff and management give excellent customer service.
  • Great place, great souvenirs! Mary and Martha is always a favorite place to pick up high quality gifts for friends and family. Friendly and helpful staff.. Be sure to chat with the owners, Bill and Irene, if you get a chance, great people!
