Prices of Souvenirs in India

Postby makeup_girl81 » Tue Nov 13, 2012 7:24 pm

Hi

I'm going on the Delhi to Goa Uncover India tour starting on Nov 19.

I know haggling is a big part of the Indian (Asian) culture.

Just curious if anyone can give me a basic outline for prices on common souvenirs so I don't get totally ripped off. I don't actually have any idea what these things are normally bargained down to and don't want to pay too much like a stupid tourist lol.

Shawls
Clothing
Shoes
Jewellery
Tea
Spices
Bedspreads
Any other common souvenir items ppl might suggest are welcome as well

Thanks

Haggle... haggle...haggle... and don't let on that you really want something when you walk away (they WILL follow you with another lower offer)

If you don't mind paying a few cents more, don't bother haggling so long
