  • A place where you can find traditional stuff to buy as gifts for your family members and friends, but you will find a variety of stuff, just similar things among the shops
  • This place is a community of shops selling interesting souvenirs. Bargain, and bargain hard. If you do not know your timber, do not buy anything touted as Ebony - most of them are regular timber coloured/ dyed black (ebony is so heavy that it sinks in water, and the tree does not grow beyond 25-30cm diameter. Metal artifacts are not from Gabon, and so aren't clothes.
