When I travel to a place, or even in a place I live, my favourite souvenir is postcard. I love collecting postcards to send to my beloved ones, but also just for the sake of collecting because I love them! So I’m also in search for them. But I do not like the cookie cutter kind of postcards sold at ordinary shops. I prefer something unique and more artistic than a stunning photograph of the destination. And I found an awesome shop selling some unique artsy postcards as well as some other cool souvenirs of Vietnam.
The Craft House
I found out about The Craft House online while searching for something else. When I visited the shop, I was over the moon! This little shop is filled with small adorable and craft goods and I could easily spend a good chunk of money here buying everything they have.
From postcards, notebooks to mugs with prints of Vietnam’s charms and beauties, I love how so much variety of awesome Vietnam souvenir goods they have in such a small shop. One of my favourites is their watercolour painting postcards of famous landmarks in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh.
Another of my favourites in the shop is their tea selections from Vietnam, which I believe can be a perfect gift for friends and families back home. I find the package with faces of Vietnamese people absolutely amazing and so memorable.
I must say their goods are not as cheap as those you can find in some other souvenir shops. For instance, the set of 4 watercolour postcards is 160,000VND (about 7USD). But for their uniqueness and cuteness, I think they’re worth the price.
If you’re also looking for a souvenir shop with special and crafty goods to bring back home from Vietnam, check out The Craft House. They have six locations in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh and Hoi An cities. So if you’re in one of these cities, you can visit The Craft House and bring Vietnam back home with you!
Also, check out this other shop selling handmade goods and souvenir made by ethnic groups of mountainous regions in Vietnam.
