Atlanta, GA 30306

If you’re looking for a truly special gift, head to Blabla — a word that, according to the shop’s owners, means both nothing and everything. Blabla sells items hand-knitted by artisans from Peru, including a wonderful line of soft dolls and puppets ranging from monkeys to mermaids. They come in all sizes and shapes — from dolls small enough to fit on a key chain to ones as large as the child who plays with them — and the wide assortment of clothing and accessories gives each doll its own unique personality. You’ll also find equally lovely items for babies such as rattles, mobiles and blankets.
