Probably the best kept secret in the Christian Quarter.
This shop has the most beautiful ceramics and glassware.
A soothing combinations of fair prices and no haggling relieves you of the tedious negotiations common in the old city.
Souha, the owner of the shop is friendly and helpful.
We often come there to buy gifts and she wraps and packs efficiently, so fat none of our purchases was broken during our travels.
Almost forgot, she's located at 78 Christian Quarter St.
I'm pretty sure you won't find her on Facebook or google, seems that she is not willing to invest in promotion.
If you like Souha and her shop please help her and promote her lovely place.

Church of the Holy Sepulchre, The Redeemer & John the Baptist Church are all situated in Christian Quarter. If you have a tight schedule, it is recommended to at least visit these three churches in the Quarter.

Churches, hospices, shops, stalls and cafes. Plenty to see and do between visits to the Holy Sepulchre.

Were it not for the name Christian Quarter Street, I would not have known the difference between this section and the Jewish Quarter. There are other clues: Holy Sepulcher Church and Lutheran Church of Redeemer. Shopkeepers hawk the same touristy tchotchkes, food carts operated by individuals who have no way of washing hands between handling money and food—or touching facial orifices (hopefully, that’s all)—and the endless stream of tourists rushing to get to… Where?

I did happen upon the Stations of the Cross (where Jesus had to drag his burden to the crucifixion site), along Villa Dolorosa. Without a guide, however, I didn’t know the importance of each Station. I did find my way into several churches and would have walked past them, had it not been for generous local residents who went with me to the entrance of each. I found Jerusalem residents of all religious faiths to be considerate and helpful to this old geezer with white hair. Perhaps that’s why☺

Great as other 3 quarters, you should visit all of them. Every has his special unique atmosphere and people so take time to discover every part of this wonderful Old City of Jerusalem.
