Shopping - Shopping Potosí - Bolivia

Potosí is a good place to purchase jewelery, silver, tin products and local handicrafts at reasonable prices. Many of the souvenirs are made in nearby indigenous villages. As well as the local market on Calle Oruro, there is Mercado Arsenal on Plaza Saavedra (Calle Sucre and Omiste), which is a handicraft and souvenirs market that caters exclusively to tourists. Although the prices are pretty cheap to start at the toursit market, have some fun and try bartering.

Artesanía El Chasqui (Calle La Paz 1649 and Artesanía Andine on Calle Sucre 92) offer a variety of interesting local works and souvenirs that have been made in the villages surrounding Potosí and are sold to improve the economic situation of local people. The main shopping streets are Bolívar and Sucre.
