If you are looking for pipes then Yanghuo has many of them, you can also buy really old pipes and with cool designs on them. They have both big and small ones, I paid 5rmb for the small one and the big one i wanted was 80rmb after 20 minutes of bargaining.
You can find the pipes in some of the shops on west street and around and aswell on the sidewalks you will see people with them on a blanket or something.
What to pay: 20rmb max for the smaller ones and up to a 100 for the big ones i would say.

Address: Streets of Yangshuo
This is Yangshuo's wet market - a place where all the sundries, vegetables, fish, pork and fruits are sold. . We went into this market in the later part of the day and still see that a lot of people are busy selling and buying. There were also some small stalls inside the market where they sell small dumplings, roasted pork, chicken and ducks. We bought some small dumplings ("pau") for our tea break. They were really steamy hot and delicious and cheap. We paid 1yuan for 3 small dumplings.

Address: along Pantao road.
Each square centimeter seems disputed by shops, restaurants, and street vendors in West street.
The name was given by the cafes and restaurants selling western food, but everything is quite Chinese, even those "western" establishments.
Western food is just a detail in a street market that sells everything from early in the morning untill late in the night.

What to buy: The most populous minority people in Guangxi is Zhuang people. Females are skilled to make embroidery balls (Xiu Qiu) and trained to throw them at very young age. After the age of majority, they will have their chance of a lifetime to throw this ball to the guy that she likes. The guy who is lucky and catches the ball will be her man.
This traditional event is celebrated every year and lasted until now. Young females are very good at throwing embroidery balls so that she will not miss her "target".
What to pay: Each ball costs about RMB1 to RMB3, depending on the size, embroidery and material. As for material, you can have velvet or silk. Females go get it for your loved ones or for decorative piece.

What to buy: Not sure what type of handicraft is this, traditional or modern one. I saw it in almost everywhere of Yangshuo. The motifs are weird and colourful like carrying some implied messages. They are made of wood and can be hung on wall.
I believe it's a native artwork by the Zhuang minority people.

What to buy: You can find all sorts of chinese souvenir here like paintings, porcelain, curios, handicrafts from minority people, etc. Some of the special souvenirs from Yangshuo are embroidery balls, painted fans and T-shirt with funny chinese wordings. If you would like to shop for local produce, there are two supermarkets here. There are also an underground shopping centre and two CD/DVD shops here (approx RMB15 per copy, many foreign albums are available).
What to pay: As a norm for shopping in China, bargain and slash the price for at least half.
