Wow, were the ladies of the stalls pretty!!!
Lots of items of various kinds on offer. Beads, glass, show articles, wooden objects, etc.
A pretty, understated wooden carving on a simple twig caught my eye - had to have something authentic on it, and it did!
Hopefully, the wood was local, and the writing simply says 'Slovenija'.
Need I say more?
Would always remind one of the country!

Postcards can be found in many shops and kiosks; however, their price is often as high as 0.50 or 0.60 euro. If you have to buy a certain number of postcards without paying too much, I suggest you'd go to the kiosk lying in Presernov trg (Preseren square) close to the Triple Bridge or Tromostovje. It is a small kiosk that sells newspapers, cigarettes and other items.
What to pay: This kiosk sells postcards at 0.33 euro each. It is the lowest price I have found in Ljubljana.

For those who can’t resist the siren call of a good bookshop head for the wonderfully bijou Behemot. This hidden gem has a good stock of English books including some Slovenian translations and a shed load of film books. The store had the additional advantage of being staffed by an attractive female assistant who seemed pretty chilled out about me reading half the stock before buying.
What to buy: I guess that would be books! I bought an intriguing novel by Drago Jancar that explores the conflicting states of experience and comprehension.
What to pay: Depends on what you buy!

Ljubljana is the only capitol city I have ever visited where in the centre the shops stay closed on Sunday
we found a few craft shops open near the tourist information centre, and there is the flea market in the morning, but the shops along the strrets leading from Preseren Square were closed, we found this refreshing, Sunday is a time for families to be together, not to spend working or shopping
there were plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants open, and lots of families enjoying the September sunshine

Right in front of the covered market there is a street market where farmer sell fruits, vegetables and flower. It is really colorful and have a great variety of products. I was really impressed and wondered around a lot taking picture and buying products for lunch.

In the same area where the veggie market take place there are also many artisan stand. They sell their hand made product and some are really interesting and well made.
I bought myself a apron made by a lady with Ljubljana dragon painted on top. a wreath made of small colorful dry flowers and a painted wooden egg that seem to be typical around there.
What to buy: Prices depend on how good the product is as all over the place in the world. you can't expect to spend 10 euros on a handmade watercolor can you? but they had really reasonable price and the apron i bought went in the wash several time and still is great as when I bought it so it was worth it the price. I believe it was around 20 euros in 2009.

For souvenirs and folk crafts, there are several boutiques along Mestni trg in the old town.
Also the gift shop of Hotel Slon (Slovenska cesta 34) has some nice items.
