    One of the oldest shops in Port Mathurin, look at next picture - the shopowner, here you can find clothes hats and most everything you could ask for, it was impossible to bargain, and you dont need that because the price asked is so low so you can afford it

    What to buy: Rodriguan Hats and baskets made of vacoa, a very strong material that grows on Rodrigues

    What to pay: 60-100 RS for a hat and a little bit more for a basket.

    A la Capital: Best buys

    by majoe Written Aug 2, 2003

    Most of the shop are found in Port-mathurin, the capital of Rodrigues. And they are mainly local craft, souvenirs, rafia bags-all shapes and color to suit anyone's taste...

    My best buy there would be a multicolor hamac, very light in weight and just beautiful.
    When I stepped in the shop I was amazed to see all these coloured sarongs and hamacs hanging all around the place... I just had to have it.

    What to buy: If you are looking for some souvenirs, there are presents made out of corals representing the fishermen or the island and other figures.

    There is also the bijou coco- jewels made out of coconut, polished and shaped wonderfully. You'll be amazed and surprised.

    What to pay: I had around $500 spending money and didi not use all of it but that was 4 years ago...
