  • Don’t bother with the State Department Store. Yes, the selection is a lot smaller, but genuine items made in Mongolia that benefit traditional Crafts People! Best Souvenir Shop in UB Speak English Accepts all major credit cards
  • Mary & Martha is a small fair trade gift shop that benefits both the women who make much of the goods found in the shop as well as the customers who are looking for something distinctly Mongolian (or sometimes Kazakh) to bring home from their travels. They have the warmest yak-hair or camel-hair socks, felted trinkets and ornaments, ornate needlework, hand crafts, post cards, and much more.
  • Love the store, the stuff and the mission. The store looks small, but it has a very large variety of items. I purchased a tie and cufflinks and some wool greeting cards. They apparently source their products from local artisans who in turn get a lot more than average in terms of remuneration. Definitely go here for the souvenirs for the special people in your life.
  • Very nice shops. It says it is fair and ethical. You can find a lot of gift and souvenirs ideas. Postcard, traditional clothes, scarfs, jewelers and so on... I bought a hand painted silk scarf and hand made soaps. recommended
  • I went to Mary & Martha in 2015 late summer. I loved this shop and the way they introduce local artisans. Products are beautiful and I really love the bracelet.
