People visiting Labasa Town are not only doing their shopping at supermarkets but are also interested in the handicrafts stalls at the new double storey Labasa Market.

Luse Vatuwaliwali, who has been selling handicraft for more than two years, said her business was well. She said more people were buying mats, kuta and tapa.  “I had received orders from people from overseas who are here on holiday,” Ms Vatuwaliwali said.

She said most of them buy mats and Tapa for traditional gatherings in their villages.

“The rate we have been giving to customers this time is still the same and we do not increase our price.” She said.

Ateca Tamanilatui of Seaqaqa said mats prices were very affordable and it was good to see varieties of handicrafts sold in the market.
