The Open Air Market

Small shops made of sheet metal, bearing names that are sometimes knock-offs of famous name brands, manage to get a smile, crammed full with knickknacks made of soap stone and wood, frames and baubles that have more ethnic than commercial value. No credit cards are required, just good bargaining skills, So shopping in Watamu may require hard work.
