At many of the scenic vista stops on R532, local merchants and craftspeople sell their wares at very reasonable prices. Most merchants will bargain. We got some great stone and wooden carvings at a tiny fraction of what we might pay at a gallery at home. Official signs at the scenic vistas state that the merchants are officially sanctioned and that tourists are encouraged to shop and contribute to the local economy.
What to buy: Carvings of stone and wood, baskets, textiles, ceramics. . .
The vendors at the Mac mac falls have most of the crafts you can buy at the shops at half the price.
What to buy: Local art and crafts
What to pay: Less than in the art and crafts shops
