At the end of the parking lot near the elevator, you'll see this small gift shop. It has the look and feel of a little mountain log cabin and you'll find plenty of the usual souvenirs including postcards, tee shirts and other interesting souvenirs.
What to pay: There are some small shops just outside the park entrance on Highway 64/74A in the town of Chimney Rock, but I didn't compare prices. You might want to check some of those shops to get an idea of prices before you spend money at the park's gift shop.
