  • Nice range of things but hugely overpriced and terrible quality. They had printed one of the paper posters onto sticker paper which then did not even stick. Bad purchase  more »

  • Kind of pricey for a postcard (350rp) vs the usual ones at 50-250 rp; found some at 30 elsewhere! But I love the designs and posters.
  • Really amazing poster/picture/art gallery right in the heart of Galle Fort. They specialize in replica travel posters from Sri Lanka's past - definitely not your typical "tourist trap" accessories. A very unique place to browse, although the prices may be a bit high (as expected). Currently they are also offering prints from their guest artist Segar - some really nice impressionist artwork. Recommended!
  • Great place to pick up some artistic and retro poster souvenirs.
  • Interesting shop with loads of posters and postcards. Highly recommended for collectors/designers/poster-fans.
  • Amazing, high quality prints! The postcards make for really nice souvenirs
