“Souvenirs et al”
Reviewed July 11, 2011

Excellent place to purchase locally woven materials, dyed materials, sculptures (mostly animals like giraffe, elephants, ducks etc), carved stones, silver jewelries, beaded jewelries, jewelry box, leather (cow hide mostly - but genuine leather all the same) shoes, bags, wallets, stuffed animals, local musical instruments (best used for decorations), ostrich feathered shoes, bags and fans... lots of goodies.

Make sure you bargain all the time. The actual price is usually between 40 - 60% of what they initially tell you. If you can find a local you can trust, let him do the bargaining for you. Pay in Naira, though a few shops will take foreign currency (Euro/ Dollar), but it is cheaper when you pay in Naira.
