    If you are looking for local crafts in Nassau, go to the Straw Market.

    What to buy: There is variety of items to buy. Many of the stands have the same items. Look for what suits your fancy. Before you consider buying.

    I really loved the things at this shop which were all made locally in the Bahamas, and many of which were not too expensive.

    What to buy: Conch shell jewelry - ranged from $5.95 to $13.95

    Small prints by Bahamian artists of local scenery - from $23-$25

    Stuffed toys (I got an octapus and a sea horse for my granddaughters) about $20

    Post cards - 55 cents each.

    various stalls: Straw Market

    by leffe3 Written Dec 29, 2002

    Bustling market on the sea front, reputedly the wrold's largest straw market. Needless to say, purchases are not restricted to simply straw goods - you buy virtually all your tourist requirements here. But straw is the big attraction - and you can watch the craftsmen at work.

    Gucci bags galore

    The Hotel Atlantis has many shops inside of it, but only go to these if money is of no concern or need in your life. They are great names with even greater prices.

    What to pay: Out the A$$
