Besides, the shop also sells other products such as T-shirts, notebooks which are designed by the princess.

This shop is more than just a store. It is a connection between people who live in the city and people who live in the rural areas. It means when you buy products from this shop, the money will go to people living in the countryside who make the handicrafts. So, if you are finding quality handicrafts, I do recommend you to visit this shop.
