La Llama Place

La Llama Place is a family owned and operated retail business which started in the late 1960's.
The idea began during trips taken to the United States by Señor Clemente and Maria Revilla from Peru. Señor Revilla and his wife visited Ohio on a regular basis. While visiting their family they decided it would be a great idea to start importing Peruvian folk art and selling them at local/state fairs and festivals. The beautiful handicraft items that Peru had to offer were unknown to many people in the Midwest area in the 60's. The demand for the unique items at the fairs and festivals was so high that the family decided to open a retail store location. The first La Llama Place store was opened in the early 1970's at Franklin Square (Franklin, Ohio). After several years, the
Franklin Square location was closed and in the mid 80's La Llama Place moved to Yellow Springs.

As of today, La Llama Place retail store is still located in downtown Yellow Springs, Ohio. In 2001, an online retail/wholesale division named "Pacific Imports" was added to the business.
In April 2009, a second retail location called "La Alpaca Place" opened at the 2nd Street Market in downtown Dayton, Ohio.

We hope that you will appreciate the large selection of Peruvian folk art, clothing, and jewelry items that we have to offer at both our retail and online stores as much as we do. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to find out more about us.
