Recommended for its good collection, visiting artists, multiple media, including ceramics, necklaces, paintings.... all a little pricey, but you will be glad you have them when you get home.

This shop is full of wonderful things, all rather expensive, but without a doubt the best quality and selection I found anywhere in Senegal. They will ship abroad and they take credit cards. From furniture to jewellery, handbags to statues, there's lots of choice - but do be prepared to spend and quite possibly more than you expected - it's all too tempting!
Best of all were the paintings by a very talented local artist

This art gallery has beautiful works, from jewelry to furniture. We bought small nesting tables that they are shipping to Canada for us. The carvings they have are wonderful.

Dakar is a hub for talented artists, and Galerie Arte's new location close to the port is filled with fabulous finds, the selection of Artists is close to the owner's heart and she seems to collaborate with the finest in West Africa, her furniture designs are unique and well made, it's my go to place in Dakar, and thank goodness I can pay by credit card here!!!
