There are many shops here selling all sorts of interesting items which are part of the Bolivian traditional culture/practices. Worth a visit.

We lucked out as we stayed close to the 'Witches' Market'. If you're in the market for Llama fetuses, Bolivian armadillos, aphrodisiacs, turtles, frogs, snakes and magic potions then this is the place to explore and get your fix. According to ancient beliefs most of the merchandise are used in rituals to bring love, health, wealth, longevity, happiness, and many more positiveness into your lives. Regarding the Llama fetuses, they don’t actually kill the baby llamas but collect them from the miscarriages. The Llama fetuses are to be buried under the foundation of homes/houses for protection, good luck and prevent mishaps while under construction. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. There are a few artisan stores selling unique handicrafts and souvenirs and then there's those run-of-the-mill stores. Well worth a visit although it takes up only a small part of this touristy area. Recommended!

You cannot say that you have been to La Paz without mention the Witches Market or Mercado de las brujas, it is the most amazing place. You will be able to find handmade crafts, silver, wool as well as items for witchcraft. There are a line up of stores to buy from, either to fix lovers, families, finances etc. The market starts from the San Francisco Church up to the end of a very long street. Worth seeing even if you do not believe in witchcraft but want to buy gifts to bring home.
