Fair Prices, Friendly Faces
May 2019
Having studied abroad in Jerusalem for a total of 6 months, I can attest to the fair prices of Shaban and Omar's shop, as well as their money-changing! They are lovely people, very helpful, and very hospitable. I've bought many souvenirs there after shopping around, and since I was in the area long-term, they helped me find what I was looking for if they didn't already have it. Bought a beautiful leather backpack from them, and it really was the most reasonable price of all the shops I checked at!
Thankful for all of their help with my souvenir shopping! My family and friends loved the gifts I brought back for them.

Best shop in the Old City!
Mar 2020 • Friends
I came to Jerusalem on a study abroad and actually lived right here in Jerusalem for over three months. Friends from the past had told us about Omar’s shop, and they were right! Omar is, to my knowledge, the most honest and helpful shop owner in the old city. His prices are fair (trust me—I’ve checked), and you can trust the quality of his products. He and his father are incredibly helpful to all of us students, and they’re always anxious to help. If you need a friend in Jerusalem, this is the place to go. Most of the girls on our program purchased custom silver rings here, necklaces, tshirts, bags, journals—whatever you’re looking for, look here first! And if you don’t find it, ask Omar where else you might look and he’ll happily direct you. Happy travels!

One of My Favorite Places in The Old City
Mar 2020 • Friends
I love coming here every time we come to the city. They will welcome you in and give you tea, coffee, or baklava! They really have the best prices for most everything and if they don’t have something, they can point you in the right direction to someone they trust. I strongly recommend stopping by here!

Love this shop!

This is my favorite shop in Israel! I’ve been to Israel twice and Shabban and Omar have been extremely helpful. They are so honest and you can trust them. This shop is also a safe place to exchange money (card and cash). Highly recommend it!

TMU students have raved about how wonderful Omar and Shaban so I was super excited to get to know them when we traveled out to Israel to study abroad! We are always excited to see them both again and they can recommend the best places to eat or get coffee!

Omar and His Father are Exemplary
Sep 2019
There are two shops here. One is Shop #14 and the other is Shop #19. One of the shops is run by the father and the other by his son Omar. These gentlemen were introduced to us by our guide who vouched for their honesty and integrity. He assured us that we could use credit cards at these stores and not get any surprises. Omar gave us a great little introduction to the Old City and warned us what not to do. He told us how to spot good merchandise and fake merchandise.

In addition to all of this, Omar personally helped me. I had fallen while hiking and required stiches (my poor job of closing the wound did not work). When he learned of what happened he insisted on helping. He took me to a family friend (doctor) in a clinic near the Mount of Olives. The doctor and staff took care of business and stiched me up. Omar is a first class act. My wife and I later purchased jewelry (silver and Roman glass) from him which our daughter-in-laws really liked and which my wife liked.

Omar and his father are really good people.
