I will be spending two weeks in Ecuador in September and want to bring back beautiful shigras handbags and alpaca sweaters. What is a reasonable price to pay for theses items at craft markets ? I will visit Cuenca, Quito, Otavalo, and Cotachachi.

Are there any wholesalers in these cities you can recommend?

It has been many many years since I shopped for the crafts you are interested in so I have no idea about current prices. My only advice is to make sure you barter lots when you go to the markets! yes.gif
