Vernissage: Best Place For Souvenirs
Perhaps the BEST PLACE in the whole of Armenia to buy souvenirs from.. Vernissage is a bazaar style shopping experience on a blocked off street where ONLY ON THE WEEKENDS (SATURDAY AND SUNDAYS) people sell souvenirs and pretty much any type of Armenian Handcrafts one can think of. PAINTINGS, CARPETS, EMBROIDERIES, WOOD AND STONE CARVINGS, METALWORK, ARMENIAN DOLLS, KHACHKARS FROM TUFF AND MANY MANY MORE ITEMS Bargaining is accepted in Vernissage but sometimes a price a customer asks is clearly not worth the many hundreds of hours spent by the person to make the khachkar from wood or the backgammon.. Hence be fair in the price you ask to pay!!!
