Premalal (68) has been running his little souvenir shop on Yaddehimulla Road in Unawatuna, Sri Lanka for the past 18 years. All of his stocked items are locally sourced and handmade. He sells all thoughts of items from earrings to pretty much everything you can wear around your arms, neck, ears and legs.
Mike’s Souvenir Corner has a five star rating and is is Google #1. Best souvenir shop not only in Sri Lanka but from all other countries too.
Before starting his little business after the Tsunami in 2004 he was selling pineapples and mangos – running up and down Unawatuna beach from dusk till dawn. Despite the fact that he has always been working hard to make a living, he is always smiling and full of positive energy.
