Shopping stop at Chansouk Souvenir Shop

Since I have moved to an appartment that I can call “home”, I am always looking for stuffs to make it even more cosy. The shop between Day  2 Night and Wat Anou catched my attention every time I passed by but… It was always closed ! On a Saturday morning though, some products were displayed along the street and doors were (was) open.

I couldn’t pass my chance to finally visit this souvenir shop, the Chansouk souvenir shop.

The tiny shop is full of tempations: scarf, postal cards, earrings, tote bags and purses, bracelets, fan… For all the tastes and every budget. My favourites are the Indigo pieces, that I think are chic and casual at the same time.

By purchasing there, it improves lives of Lao women, and I am sure all of you agree with me: we are all glad to do it ! And even more when it’s beautiful.

The clothes there are made in Thailand, but they look very good. I didn’t dare to try a grey dress in the middle of the shop but I’ll certainly return to buy it !

It honestly worths to pay a visit to the shop, it’s super tiny but every squared meter of it is filled, make it full of fabulous stuffs to bring back home. Or to buy as a present !

Oh.. And for the story: I didn’t buy anything. At least, not for the appartment ;).

  1. Salut ! Je vis à Thakhek depuis février, et je regarde régulièrement ton blog pour préparer mes passages à Vientiane donc merci 🙂 Sais-tu où je pourrais trouver de la poudre de matcha dans cette ville ? Aussi, je crois que ce magasin dont tu parles est fermé… Je cherche à me procurer un poster vintage du Laos (celle avec un éléphant dessus) mais je ne sais pas où trouver. Un conseil ?
    Merci d’avance pour ta réponse !


    1. Bonjour Lisa,

      Pour le thé matcha, tu peux contacter ou checker Ladda Bakery:
