Tegallalang can be a one-stop-shop place for gifts, to take home. The locals make carved goods, some of which end up in Ubud, some go straight on sale here. Putna Sari is a small shop on the main street, that passes through town. The solo staff member couldn’t speak English and seemed afraid to make contact at all, quickly calling her boss on the phone and leaving the shop. He arrived and offered me a few prices. The predominant theme of all the goods in this shop, is they are jewelry display equipment. I saw racks for necklaces going for 17,000rp-23,000rp, carved hands a foot high, that were for ring displays. These cost 20,000rp and the foot tall carved cones, also for rings, cost 13,000rp
Creatively shaped carved figurines were also on offer. An 18 inch figure was 25,000rp, a 3 foot figure was 120,000rp. Special orders can be handled. The shop is open from 8am-6pm.
