You can find anything you want here. Don't hesitate to bargain a lot and to group what you want to buy. It's a pretty large area with objects, painting, fabrics and clothes, masks... Have a look

Great small village in the centre of town selling handicrafts. Foreigners can expect to pay six times the normal price. Ask a local to come with you to negotiate amd pay three times the normal price.
