I love nothing better than supporting local crafts while traveling. I will admit, I do not have the ability to haggle, and I really don’t believe in it. Why would I have the means to afford to fly halfway across the world and then try to pay 10 dollars for a bracelet you are selling for 20? No, he may not have made the bracelets, but his mother or sisters might have. How could I know the time and effort it takes and how dare I tell them they deserve less. Note-the woman in the photo is in no way related to this post, she was simply in the spot when I took the shot.
Much love from the brown girl, traveling the world, not haggling and buying something beautiful!
