Straw Market in Nassau.....


Recommended Posts

Has anyone been lately to the straw markets?? Is it still at the same location? Are they still selling the "designer bags"?? LOL



Is it still by Senor Frogs??? I figured DBF could go there for a beer while i go into the market and haggle with the local ladies....lol

Hi, I was in Nassau in the beginning of August and yes the straw market is still there next to Senor Frogs. It actually turned out to be the highlight of my day (a celebrity was at Atlantis and so certain areas where this person was weren't accessable. And Senor Frogs was having electricity problems and were closed!)


They are still selling the bags. I picked up a Gucci and a Fendi and most of the other women I was with did also. I was very surprised at the prices they first offered for each, they were crazy. So my tip is if its over $20 ask for half, and you'll usually get it, just be nice to the ladies. ;)

Yeah, I was worried when I first walked in and heard $70, but they came waaaay way down, lol. There were some older ladies in front of me walking, and were ignoring the women working the booths, and boy did they get mad at them!! So I made sure to smile say no thankyou and keep on walkin, lol.
