avoid Mari shop in the souq area

hi, I've just come back from Middle East. If you ever happen to be in the souq area in Damascus, avoid Mari shop with silver/gold etc. (near the Umayyad Mosque). Think twice before buying something there, you might disappointed with the value of what you've bought and the owner can be very convincing...
