Marrakech shopping

Hi - off to Marrakech for 3 days next month; my first visit. I've had requests to bring back slippers and spices. Could anyone give me an idea how much one should expect to pay (after haggling) for said slippers and also, if it's ok to bring back spices through UK customs. I'm assuming you don't haggle for spices...?!?

Much appreciated :)

Hi there I thought instead of starting my own thread I would just post in here.

I am heading to Marrakech over Easter and wondering about buying silver jewellery as well as textiles. Is the main souk the best place to do this or over priced?

Hi,

Specialist jewellery shops are better, have a look at SIWA on Rue Dar el Bacha for example and for fabrics I'd suggest you browse the many shops on Avenue Houmann el Fetouaki on the way to the Mellah or indeed the market at the Mellah itself.

Visit the gold and silver souks next to the Mellah in the southern medina to check out quality and prices (items are priced firstly by weight and then by craftmanship) as shimmin suggests. Then have look at the boutique outlets for jewellery. As well as Siwa which specialises in silver both modern and traditional, you could also visit bazaar Khartit Mustapha on Rue Mouassine (en route to the square from Rue Dar el Bacha). They stock an amazing range of bijouterie. Just off this street there are several fabric shops also.
