Zohara and I checked out several of the souvenier shops in the old city of Acco and found them all to be overpriced. Many stores in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem sell the same products at a better price. So check several shops before you do you purchasing.
Unique Suggestions: If you inform the shop owner of having seen better prices, be prepared to haggle and tell him/her the exact prices you saw. If the price is close to what you are willing to pay, ask for a 50% discount and see what the shop owner says. Expect a lowered price, they jack them up for tourists who have too much money to spend and don't care about paying double or triple the worth of an item.
