Well stocked shop run by a fair trade not-for profit organization promoting traditional Vietnamese handicrafts. Conveniently located opposite the Temple of Literature. Good range of reasonably priced artifacts.

Rather lack-lustre shop with traditional tourist-fodder. Not worth a special trip if you are looking for something out of the ordinary. I had doubt that some of the stuff was even made in Vietnam
