THE SHOW

Joyfully we welcome you back this holiday season, to experience the sights, sounds, and magic of Indonesia in-person for our 25th Anniversary Show & Sale. For more than two decades From Bali to Bala has brought together art, culture, education, charity, soul & spirit, with convenient shopping in a cross-cultural experience unique to the Philadelphia region. In 2020 because we could not be together physically, we embraced the opportunity to switch gears and created a virtual marketplace. From Bali to Us was born, and is now one identity for both our annual show and online site. As we continue to evolve, please join US online, anytime, anywhere, or if you are in the Philadelphia region during the holiday season at our annual show in Chestnut Hill. Learn more about this year’s show here.
