Local market and souks: All kinds of baskets
What to buy: A great idea before doing all your shopping : first buy a local basket to carry on all your gifts. The only problem left is, where to hide them to bring them home ? Luckily as in most of the african countries, we didn't have any problem with the overweight on the plane haha !
What to buy: Can't get enough of it ?
Henna for temporary body decoration is mixed up with water and is used as a paste.
It is also part of the tunesian wedding ceremony. Before the wedding the girl has a kind of body painting with the henna paste, especially on hands and feet. It's also used for colouring the hair.
Local market and soukhs: Dishes, plates etc. etc.
You'll certainly would buy them all for yourselves or as a gift. Plates, dishes, cups etc. are really very nice and cheap. They exist in various colours and patterns.
What to pay: Bargain, bargain and bargain again !
