Where to Shop and What to Buy in Galle

Antiques, art and lace are the primary souvenirs that you can pick up at little shops and stalls at Galle. At the Galle Fort you can pick up semiprecious stone jewelry set in silver at a number of Gem Shops in Church Street. Local lace is also equally easy to pick up. At some places you may actually see the lace being made.

Olanda

At Olanda, you can chance upon some antique furniture. Retailers ship to anywhere in the world and also make fake antique furniture which is much cheaper. Of course as with everything else you need to negotiate well to get a good price but please note that shipping charges are more or less fixed and there’s little you can do about them.
