The owners of most painted houses sell hand-painted souvenirs. I bought some flowers and fishes from the first place we stopped. Later we saw the same things again in the Dom Malarek where they had exactly the same price. Also in the museum you can buy various souvenirs. I bought something there too. The souvenirs are inexpensive and there is no point to haggle for a better price.
What to buy: All things painted. Some things are made of wood, others of clay. They do have lovely gifts to take home. They are ideal because they are small and light weight. They even have Christmas and Easter decorations.
What to pay: Small things start at 2-3 USD.
All cottages: This should be a warning, not a tip
Zalipie residents' homes are their shops. Decorated inside and outside, take time to admire them. And see how their famous tradition is carried over to the goods they sell. They're works of regional art that are fast disappearing in the rest of Poand.
What to buy: Hand-painted buckets, plates, bells, vases, and many, many other items.
What to pay: As mentioned before, the prices are very cheap for these items, so don't try to haggle.
