Margie's Handicrafts is a small souvenir shop in the heart of Cabadbaran, Agusan del Norte. It sells Agusan-made products that may be used in the house or as decoration. Baskets and small items are made of Abaca, the town's primary product. Baskets and other souvenirs made of rattan and seagrass are available, too.

Manobo is an indigenous group living in Agusan. Their traditional clothes are available here and the quality is guaranteed. The dolls wearing Manobo are not for sale at the time of our visit since they're just the prototype. Maybe when you go, there will be available dolls in Indigenous outfits available already.

Margie, the mother of the store owner Dennis, also loves making accessories so this store also sells bracelets, necklaces and accessories made of native products that can surely be a wonderful souvenir to your friends and family.

Fly to Butuan City from Manila.

From Butuan, ride a jeep/ multicab going to the city of Cabadbaran (about 40 minutes away).

Once in Cabadbaran, take a tricycle to Margie's Handicrafts.
