I've been meaning to post pictures from this lovely store for quite some time now. Vida Galleria is located in the picturesque Casco Viejo a block from the Plaza Cathedral and in front of La Casa Gorgona. American owner, Laurie, (great name huh?) lived many years in Guatemala before moving to Panama. The store features amazingly beautiful home accessories, handbags, and other beauties all featuring handcrafts of both Guatemala and Panama. My favorites our the to die for Mola and hand woven pillows (weaving done in Guatemala), and the gorgeously bright colored hammocks displayed around! My sweet friend, Chabela, from Buenos Aires also sells her wears there (picture with her below)! I was lucky to go to an opening there and had a lovely time enjoying fresh ceviche de corvina con manzanas and white wine!
